If you’re in Boston, head straight to The Beehive

26Nov07

I discovered one of the best night spots in the city last night and was so impressed I have to share it with you. The Beehive in Boston’s South End is a hip new downtown hangout that serves up cold drinks and hot dinner and jazz seven nights a week until 2am. What’s cool about the Beehive is that it’s something totally new to the scene; not an obvious place to take friends and guests in town like Top of the Hub, The Federalist/Moo (one of my favorites), Excelsior or Vox Populi.

I am a big fan of jazz and I would pay good money to see the kind of music I saw at the Beehive for free, with no cover charge. On top of that, the rustic, bohemian space (a converted boiler room) is an effortlessly chic place to relax.

The New York Times’s Liza Weisstuch writes, “The only waiting people do in Boston is for a slow Internet connection. So when the Beehive opened a week and a half ago — without fanfare or advertising — and a line stretched out the door every night, people were anxious to know how long the wait was…. The Beehive is the newest addition to the South End, where sleek lounges and white-linen restaurants have opened at a steady tempo over the past decade while dive bars have gone the way of the cassette tape…. ‘This place is oozing with soul,’ said Young Paik, 29, sipping Macallan at the upstairs bar….But at this Beehive, artists and white-collar professionals commingle happily, especially when the music starts.”
