Worst Experience Ever! STAY AWAY! – Worst Experience Ever!
I usually go to out to another lounge and order a table and so I did here at saint.
After getting attitude at the door, although I had reserved a table and had a suit on, I got in.
The waitress was rude, she only worked for bottle service and even though I ordered a bottle she wouldn?t bring my party any other drinks.
The attitude on her was bad; she shouldn?t be allowed to work with people.
She gave me back my driving license (after pulling it out of her braw) and it wasn?t mine?.
To get the check at the end of the night I had to wait 40 minutes.
I disputed the tip that was added on automatically.
However I did tip one of the security guards who was nice enough to find her.
I am never going back?too bad, they lost a spender.
They should probably not hire addicts and drunks.
Rip you off – The atmosphere itself is an alright place but beware of putting up a credit card for a line of credit. They will charge more than they tell you and the staff has a bit of attitude.
Better Options Nearby – If you are not on the guest list, don't bother going to Saint. We waited patiently at the very front of the line while the bouncer over and over again let in people who knew people. Once we got in after waiting literally 45 minutes (again, at the front of the line) drinks were overpriced, dance floor was cramped, and the clientele was pretty pretentious. One good thing is they had plenty of bartenders on a Saturday night, so they were always quick to serve you a drink. I'd suggest sticking to the other places nearby on Boyolston St, which are probably just as crowded, but the drinks are relatively cheaper and the people who go there are more down to earth.
I have never experienced such rude employees. The bartenders and bouncers had attitudes and acted like they were working the door at high-end LA club. They showed little respect for women. I have never been spoken to like I was at Saint. This club was AWFUL!
Not so great – I have been to Saint on Satruday nights and the music is pretty good, but it's AWFUL on Fridays... I went there after work with some people recently. The music was terrible and they had some weird theme night. I went over and asked the DJ to play music we could dance to but he said he was waiting for it to get more packed. I told him the people that are there now were ready to leave because of the music, so he might want to step it up. He continued to play remixed 80's... On top of it, they were charging $20 at the door!!! I got there early enough so I paid nothing, but my friends met me there and had to pay $20. It never did get packed and we left before 11:30 because the music never got better... I'll never go there on a Friday again... And with a $20 cover charge, I'm pretty sure I'll stay clear on Saturday's as well. Gypsy is good on Friday for anyone looking for great music!!!
Weak – There should be no cover for a place as terrible as this. Music was subpar, decor was good, bouncers and bartenders are rude. Throughout the night, I could not get a single decently made drink. Bouncers harassed patrons too, as they "interacted with" the crowd. One bouncer I saw kissing a drunk girl as she left the place. Classy.
Good times... – Honestly, I've always had a blast here. I first found Saint when I was out on a Monday. Everywhere was dead and someone recommended Saint. It was honestly the best place I've been in Boston. Fun, upbeat crowd & Hottest bartender ever.I don't really go out that much but when I do I try to make it here. The crowd is mixed. The cover is a little high, but there are always big groups of people out and the drinks are STRONG. I've never had a table, but the Bartenders are funny and I've seen the same ones over and over which is nice to recognize a face. Almost every time I've been there their has been some type of celeb, I've never talked to one, but it's still fun to know you're in the same room with Justin timberlake or the like. The dance floor is small and it gets crowded fast, but other then that, you can't go wrong.
very average bar – Sundays & Mondays are see & be seen nights since this is one of the few venues open on those evenings. However, this bar is very strange - the bathroom and lobby are upscale but the main floor is totally trashy. The music is terrible and the dance floor isn't very jumping except for two or three too-drunk people. A very young crowd so not a good place for late 20s/early 30s crowd. Overall, a trashy wannabe cool soon place - yawn!
Best place to watch young girls make fools of themselves – I am not much of a "club" person but probabaly because I am 30. This was my first time at the Saint and I will NEVER go back unless I am really in the mood to watch half dressed girls get drunk and make fools of themsleves. The bartenders are RUDE, the "living room" smells like my grandmother's basement and the crowd maybe just graduated from high school. The cover charge is outrageous! $20 if you are not on "the list" and $10 if you are. Get there early, not worth the wait in line. The best thing about the place is the music.
My Favorite Club in Boston – This is not the place you'll find $1 shot night. This is not a College bar. Boston has 10,000 Pubs and College bars go find one of those if you can't afford a $15 martini. I love Saint because it keeps most of the amateurs out. The door staff have always been very nice. Getting a table has never been a problem and no you don't have to buy a $2,000 bottle of Crystal to sit down. $350-$550/night for a party of 4-5 is normal and cheap by NYC standards. The service at the table is awful though; the girls have to be tracked down to order another round but they are hot. I always go to Saint to entertain clients and party with friends when I'm in town 6-8 times a year. I have yet to find a better place that is sophisticated, has a mature crowd, good looking and know how to party hard.
