The Estate, Boston, Massachusetts

1 Boylston Place
Boston , Massachusetts
Tel: 617 351 7000's insider take:

An over-the-top dance club wrapped around a two-level atrium, The Estate is where Boston's club kids (meaning largely international students and visiting celebrities) hang out. The prices and cover charges are high, and you can expect a line behind the velvet rope—but the people-watching is unbeatable. The decor can best be described as baroque, with lots of chandeliers, curtains, and full-length mirrors in gilded frames. Opt if you can for the separate dance floor in the basement, which is open Saturdays and is slightly less pretentious.—Jon Marcus

Open Thursdays and Saturdays, 10 pm to 2 am, Fridays 10:30 pm to 2 am.
