A central spot for art galleries, independent shops, and a vintage market…. ah, yes. You’ll feel trendy already after steeping foot inside! Release your inner creative and explore. #ProTip: visit the Open Market in the summer for craft vendors and food trucks galore.
Yeah, Haymarket is a T stop, but we’re talking about the actual MARKET set up outside the Haymarket T stop on Fridays and Saturdays from sunrise until sundown. The cheapest fruits and vegetables around!
Nordstrom Rack on Newbury Street isn’t the only place to find designer digs for less. A short ride on the Orange Line will take you to Assembly Row, a wonderful area packed with a movie theater, restaurants, and shops – most of them being outlets like Sak’s, Kenneth Cole, Lucky Brand, and more.
Get your bread where the North End eateries get theirs. You probably wouldn’t look twice, but a narrow walkway nestled between two restaurants on Hanover Street leads to a staircase down to a huge selection of freshly baked breads. You’ll face a decision between multiple types of Ciabatta and Baguette loaves, among other selections.
A Cantonese place so legit, it’s underground and you need to ask for a fork. The food is amazing and it’s open ’til 3am, making for a perfect last stop after the clubs on weekends.
Want to learn to DJ? Or produce a track? Between courses and one-off *free* events, Mmmmaven’s instructors show what they know (which is a lot).
Right over the river lies a tiny lounge that, as many say, feels like a Berlin techno club on the appropriate night. (Your best bet for that is a Thursday, and occasionally a Tuesday.) This spot boasts a lax vibe, cool people, and good music.
AKA a little chocolate house nestled between the infamous Newbury and Boylston streets. If you weren’t looking for it, you would never experience the best drinking chocolate in all of the land.
Attn. chocoholics: this one’s for you. Desserts galore. (And if you’ve got extra money to spend, a bed in the Langham Hotel itself would be the cure for your chocolate coma.)
All-you-can-eat hard shell tacos for $9?!? #YesPlease. As you’re about to leave, you’ll catch yourself devouring cotton candy topped with Pop Rocks (on the house).
