What a dump – Overpriced, with a rude staff. I don't see how this pigsty gets away with something a pretentious as a dress code (which seems to apply only to men and not to women). Never going back.
Don't waste your time – This place is a total joke. A bunch of fake id holding 19 yr olds and some 21 yr olds. The layout is aweful, you start in a lounge and go down a narrow hallway to a bigger room that is a strange shape and is way to long. The crowd was far from special, and far from attractive. We wore jeans, cute shirts and heals in a spohisticated way and blew away anyone in the place, but keep in mind most of them were 21 and in wet seal specials. The drinks were average, and the cover was $10, def NOT worth it. It was a good mix of nationalities but not classy people. We went to the Gypsy Bar for NYE and LOVED IT, a much classier club and higher scale crowd. I hate the word 'poser' but that explains the crowd in this bar to a T. They also ropped off an upper area that was accessible most the night and all of a sudden was 'VIP'. VIP what? It was all guys and then blocked you from the coat room. The staff was unattractive and rude, and there were a TON of bouncers which immidiatly made me wonder if they've had problems in the past w/ fights, given the crowd it wouldn't surprise me. My advice: don't waste your time at this place, there are MUCH better places in Boston to head to and have a great time!!
Best Club In Boston – This is by far the most fun club in Boston! I have gone now a few times with friends to having everything from birthday parties to new years eve parties at this club and everyone there is has been great to us. The liquor store has beautiful people dancing and lots of hot girls riding this mechanical Bul they have. I went a few weeks ago and i showed up with friends and WeeMan from jacka** was hanging out and riding the bul with girls in bikinis.... now how much fun is that! The people that work there have always been nice to all of us and taken care of us. It can get crowded outside waiting in line but that is just beacause it seems everyone wants to go to the liquor store club and not the boring other clubs in the alley. Highly Recomend it and think everyone should atleast try it out.
Hormonally charged scenesters head to The Alley to dance while waiting for a turn on a mechanical bull. – In Short
Befitting one of Boston's most risqué nightlife destinations, Liquor Store provides the young and beautiful with the city's only mechanical bull, seductive crimson lighting and plenty of suggestive theme nights. Keeping in line with its name, the bar often serves bottles of beer in brown bags, while fruity house drinks are served in colorful mugs. Upbeat DJs spin a familiar mix of Top 40, rap and rock tunes.
Surprisingly Fun! – I had a really good time at The Liquor Store last Friday!! My friends hairdresser Susie works on dance floor bar so he wanted to stop by and say hi, (we stayed till 2)! I wasn't going to go because I went there around 9 months ago on a friday and it was really dead. Kiss 108 was supposed to be there and they we not, but last week they were and it was great! The crowd was awesome! There were girls partying on the poles and riding the bull!!!! It can't get much better than that!! The crowd was goodlooking and the staff were hot!!!!!!!! The music was great, it kept this white boy on the dancefloor(which I don't know if that is all that great). Anyways definatelly stop by the Liquor Store.
User review by zema2 – My girlfriends and I love the Liquor Store!! Have gone there a few times for bachelorette parties and birthday parties and have always had an awesome time. What's not to like?! Cheapest cover in Boston, 40s in a paper bag, dancing on a stage, and of course the bull! Always crowded and just a great place to party and dance. The staff are very helpful - even helped my friend find her lost purse! Do get there early though or you'll end up in the ridiculously long line!
The best bachelorette party ever!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! – A few weeks ago my best friend told me we were going out for a girls night out. Little did I know that we were going to the LIQOUR STORE for my bachelorette party. She had planned this by making reservations on line. When we got there we had VIP treatment like line privilage and we didn't have to pay cover which was a plus......but that wasn't all. I was given a bachelorette gift bag by the LIQUOR STORE which i know many other places don't do that. I had a wonderful time not only because I was with all my girls but becuase the drinks were good, the people were HOT, and I got to ride the bull...........
Great Club – I visted this establishment some months ago from Colorado. Compared to the environments of several other clubs I visited in the Boston area, this place actually surpassed my expectations. Not only was the cover charge completly reasonable, but the drinks were great, the dancing was exceptional- with plenty of beautiful women, and when my cell phone decided to walk out of my pocket a few of the door men were indisposable in relocating it and getting it back to me- THAT's service! So I had a wonderful experience and would recommend this club to anyone who wants a fun, safe time.
Awesome Night Club!!!! – This place was fantastic! It was packed inside, the music was great, no hassle to get in. The staff was friendly and there was no attitude in the place. I'd definitely go there anytime if you're looking for an upbeat place to party all night.
Fun with Friends – I went to Liquor Store with a bunch of my girlfriends and had the best time ever. The club was packed with really cool people and we danced all night. Some of my friends decided to ride the bull which was hysterical. The crowd was really fun and everyone was having a great time. We didn't want to leave when it was time to go.
