“There’s never a cover,” he said, “All we ask is for people [to] adhere to the business attire dress code.”
On Wednesdays, the after work crowd usually turns hipster with Assemble Boston’s weekly event highlighting local artisans, and on Libation Thursdays you can experience cocktails inspired by the week’s featured spirit.
As for celebrity sightings, Panagopoulos shared, “Mark Wahlberg has been here; Olympians Ryan Lochte and Aly Raisman have stopped by. We’ve had industry nights where Clinton Sparks came, so in our eight short months, we have had our share of celebrities.”
Things to Come:
Summer is coming — at some point — and when it does you’ll want to check out their patio seating. Also for those who want a more exclusive Emerald experience they will be adding a secret — I mean more intimate — space coming in the future.
Why You Should Go:
If inviting décor and tasty drinks weren’t enough to convince you that you should stop by this “hot spot,” the thing I found most inviting was the attentiveness and friendliness of the staff and management. Director of Public Relations Bryan Barbier commented, “When creating the Emerald we really took into account the stigma that comes with downtown bars — basically that people are snobs. We want to be that upscale venue with the local bar feel where everyone who comes through our doors feels welcome. We want to be inclusive.”
The Emerald Lounge is located inside the Revere Hotel on 200 Stuart St. in the Theater District. For menus and detailed entertainment information visit www.emeraldultralounge.com.
