Would go again! – I've been to this club several times in the past. They play great music! The drinks aren't bad at all. Not sure of the price range since there's always a nice fella willing to pay. LOL. I've never encountered any fights. I think the cover charge is a bit pricey. It would be nice if it was complimentary for ladies before 11PM. Well I plan on going again this upcoming Saturday for a friend's birthday. Hopefully, it is free before 11PM and the photographer doesn't have another camera focus failure. Love to have our pictures taken!
Great club – I dont know what jjackson is talking about. I've been there a few times on saturdays with my classmates and I've seen other fellow alumni and other grad students there too. And I've never seen a fight there. You sure you walked into the right place? The music is the best there, probably the best top 100 music ive heard around town. The doorman can be a little agitative but which club doesnt have doorman like that. Once inside though, its a nice wide open space with plenty of room and not elbow to elbow like a lot of other places in boston.
Try it – I think Pure is the kind of place that everyone has to go at least once. You may love it and want to go back. Or you may find it not quite your style but still a fun night. I thought the music was awesome and the lights were fun. I didn't really appreciate the live go-go dancers and videos of silhouettes of unclothes women dancing - degrading!!! Then again, it's a club so a certain amount of degradation is implied (unfortunately for us ladies). Though I did find the sexism to be more apparent here.
I went on Saturday night and yes, crowd was predominately Asian. But, so what? If you're white - get over it! This country isn't all white and sometimes you'll go places where you're in the minority. Expand your horizons a little. It's still a fun place and the crowd had some killer dance moves that people at Gypsy could not compete with! The only part that disappointed me about the crowd was they waited to long to start dancing. The dance floor didn't get moving until almost midnight.
On a final note though - place is overpriced. 20 dollar cover? Should be 10. 10 dollar mixed drinks? Should be 7.
avoid saturdays! – Saturday night at PURE is predominantly frequented by Asian kids and not of the college type. I think its because of a promotion group called "isis" that run the night and collects money at the door. They attract and cater to this particular type of a crowd. This night is just downright ugly and dangerous. If bloody brawls with local chinatown thugs and barely legal girls are your cup of tea then by all means go to Pure. The music is OK and the DJ plays hip hop just like all the other clubs in town.
LOL!!!!!!!!!!!! – I came to pure for the first time! Did not like some of the staffs. They were to old, grumpy and unhappy with their job. Oh but there were a few who were sOOOoooo helpful!Besides the staffs, I loved the one hour I had to party because I arrived there late. I danced my butt off and partyed like a rock star because that's how I do! Objecting, to the other persons comment about asians. Sorry hun, you're not great or trendy at all! Trendy is if you know how to party with or without the right crowd. SoooOOOooo unethical of her! You must have not been loved because surely nobody tought you self respect and manners! Get free drinks just goes to show how cheap you are! At least buy them a drink too! Not trendy AT ALL! Why you think them asian didn't bother to look at you twice! Sounds like someone still needs alot of growing up to do! I suggest that you guys/gals (person in charge of this site) erase her comment. Because it's bad for your business. You are not going to be making good business if you keep things like this posted up! I was thinking about going there for my b-day, but now? I got 2nd thoughts lingering in my head. But anyhow, you will still see me there soon because I do not let things like this hold me down. It makes me stronger. LOL! Pure seems hot though. So I do hope next time will be longer and better!
Alternative Woman's Lifestyle Night aka Lesbian Night – I've been here on 2 different Friday nights (ladies preferred). It's a intimate (read small) club and gets pretty tight spacewise late in the evening. The dance floor is medium sized and full to overfull most of the time. Watch out for the edge because you'll get pushed right off the raised dance floor when it gets busy! Loved the light show and the dance mix was pretty good. A nice compact bar in the corner with lots of seats to watch the action. Some tables and couches around the sides too. Quite a friendly and slightly dressed up crowd who just wanted to have fun. The decorations around the club look a little homemade but the overall "feel" of the place is rather warm. Very welcoming place to lesbian girls and t-girls on Friday nights. Will be going back again soon!
Good music/not the greatest crowd – I went on a Saturday night and it was a good experience. The owner [Jeff] bought me a drink so that was a plus. Starts of really slow, so get there late [11ish or later]. The drinks tasted really good, but I can't comment on the price because people bought me drinks the whole night. Heavy asian crowd. The place itself was trendy, clean bathrooms. The crowd -- not so trendy or hip. Great music though and great for dancing, so can't complain. Good size dance floor and good service.
Editorial Review – Small dance club, located downstairs from the monstrous Roxy, plays house music deep into the night.
