Storyville

Best nightclub in Back Bay, Boston!
Storyville

Opened September, 2011 in Boston’s Historic Back Bay, Storyville pioneers a new trend in the city’s nightlife as an exciting one-of-a-kind environment where Speakeasy meets Nightclub, classic and craft cocktails pour freely, and music which soothes the soul, as well as pumps new beats, can be discovered. Located at 90 Exeter Street (the original location at Copley Square hotel) and is the vision and creation of local restaurateur Brian Lesser. “Too often we hear about places trying to emulate New York, Las Vegas and Miami, but I think it is time we concentrated on creating a venue that is uniquely Boston. One with a cool and detailed history,” says Lesser. Lesser aims to set the bar with a place that, under one roof, fuses hospitality with fun, an ambience that plays on sinful and seductive, a dining menu made to please the palate, a cocktail program with classics and innovations, and areas to unwind and lounge with friends or to dance the night away.
