Concierge.com's insider take:
To avoid the college fray, thirtysomethings with manicures, polo shirts, and cash to blow on $10 lemon-drop Martinis head to this lounge on a nondescript street in the Leather District, near South Station. The interior gleams with silvery birch trees lining the walls and white leather banquettes beneath white chandeliers, and you can chat without screaming over the electronica and hip-hop that's piped in. It's a little slice of New York, but don't worry about that doorman checking his clipboard: As long as you're business-casual (a Chanel bag wouldn't hurt), you'll make the cut. And the line usually tops out at a 15-minute wait. There's a restaurant, but come for drinks instead.
Open Mondays and Tuesdays 4 pm to 2 am, Wednesdays through Saturdays 7 pm to 2 am, Sundays 10 pm to 2 am.
