Location: Back Bay Social Club
Inspired by a time when social clubs served as the mainstay for cocktails, conversation and community, Back Bay Social Club invites those with a craving for delicious food, a laid back vibe and good company to stop in and stay a while. Red leather booths, dark mahogany bars, black and white tiled floors and pressed tin ceilings set a scene reminiscent of 1960’s Manhattan in this two-story Back Bay restaurant. The menu of American favorites is available until 1:30am daily, one of the few in the area to do so. The well-rounded menu offers something for everyone, from casual (Chicken & Waffles and a can of Narragansett) to special (Roasted Leg of Lamb with a bottle of Petite Syrah). With its friendly staff, relaxed atmosphere and a full menu from Open to Close, Back Bay Social Club has something for everyone.
