The Weekender: Boston’s Highball Lounge
Designed to look like a vintage attic (Greg Brady, anyone?) the Highball Lounge is tucked into an upper floor of Boston’s Nine Zero Hotel at 90 Tremont Street, two blocks away from Park Street station.
There are plenty of classic cocktails on the menu, as are interesting bites like tater tot nachos, ramen, and kale salad.
Wednesday-Saturday, there is a DJ spinning an eclectic mix of vinyl–from throwback Tina Turner to 90s R&B favorites and more recent tunes. In addition to the music (which was fantastic!), patrons can play board games like Sorry!, Battleship, Connect Four, and Trouble. So much fun!
The crowd was a good mix of ages and though it got busy, the space is open and airy and the mood is relaxed–not too much. Though last night my husband and I were there for a date night, I could just as easily see myself having fun there with a group of friends, or even my parents if they were in town. Definitely something for everyone. Check it out!
