1661 Ivar Ave
The Roxbury is another club which just opened at the end of 2010 and is only at the beginning of its popularity wave. It’s already played host to some legitimate ballers, with Kobe Bryant celebrating New Year’s Eve and Carmelo Anthony hosting an NBA All-Star Game after-party here. The venue, site of the old Ivar, is divided between a charming entry patio with tall, ivy-covered brick walls and small open-air bar and the indoor club area with its main bar downstairs and mezzanine level above. Neck-and-neck with Eden for freshest venue in town, the Roxbury is already routinely turning away hundreds from the door.
Check out Hemingway’s Lounge first before entering the fray at the Roxbury - or afterward if there’s a problem at the door. Hemingway’s is adjacent and is one of the coolest bars in town.
The Good:The decor will appeal to your romantic sensibilities - but then the Perfect 10 models around you already have that covered.
The Bad:Two words: door drama. Plan to arrange bottle service in advance or you could quickly find yourself choosing Plan B among the many clubs nearby.
