Grungy gay bar- home of Gold Dust Orphans

Only go to see the GDO- this year in "Murder on the Polar Express". Hilarious, ribald, irreverent riff on long list of holiday troves. Wear jeans and don't take your sweet aunt.

We (4 gay mid twenty aged adults) visited Machine in Dec 07 on a weekend. We took a cab to the club so we did not have to worry about parking. There is a cover charge to enter. There is a coat check. There were a few different rooms that made up the club with one central dance floor and... More

Staying in Fenway / Kenmore

Neighbourhood Profile
Fenway / Kenmore
The Curse of the Bambino may have ended years ago, but loyal Red Sox fans will continue to infiltrate this home to historic Fenway Park, where you can find victory banners, people yelling in stereotypical Boston accents, and lots of sports bars. Located within Kenmore Square, the old gas station Citgo sign is another Boston skyline classic seen throughout the city. In addition to a hectic and diehard sports mentality, this neighborhood is also home to some of Boston’s many universities. Move from Boston University territory to that of Northeastern, and spend time at the famous Museum of Fine Arts. For more culture, check out the smaller but equally beautiful Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum. Continue off the beaten path and check out the green space in the Back Bay Fens, a pretty community garden. This diverse neighborhood has a mix of universities, sports, culture, and more residential green space.
