Clubs Other Than Avalon


Recommended Posts

I'm originally from Boston, but after a few years in the NYC area have lost touch with the scene here. Know that Avalon has a great sound system and brings in great DJs now and then, but is that place the only option? When I was younger, with a different set of tastes, I used to like the Middle East and T.T. the Bear's in Cambridge -- but of course those are venues of another genre. Will be back in Boston for the New Year and some weeks into January. Any recommendations for some clubs/lounges to check out? E.g., how's ManRay (on a non-S/M/Goth night), the Roxy, or the Rise parties?

Hi Meta

There are alot of clubs in the Boston area other than Avalon. I used to go there alot but I don't go there anymore due to the fact that it gets way too crowded. Anyway..the Roxy is good on Saturday nights. In order to get into Rise you have to be a member or a member has to sponser you. If you can get in...it is a great time. As far as Man Ray...I have never been. I am not sure they ever have a regular club night.

I like Pravda. It used to be the Mercury Bar. It is right in the Alley. The music, people and vibe is great. Another great club is Tilt. It is in Saugus on Rt. 99. Both Friday and Sat. night are good and the DJ's spin house but I like Sat night better there. It is an older crowd and Manolo spins....(GREAT DJ)! Well thats my advice....have fun

manray on saturday has disco in front and 80s pop in back. thursdays (thier gay night) has hardhouse in front and 80s pop in back.

i used to go religiously on wednesdays (endziet in the front room spun some great stuff) but i'm not a big fan of the current dj in front -- mostly trance and ebm. never liked the back room much. fridays are much of the same *shrug* other than that, i went on saturdays once, i wasnt very impressed, but it's not really my scene so i guess i cant say. *shrugs again*
