Visited for Hump Day Broadway with Brian Patton in the Napoleon Room (08.10). Definitely geared towards the elderly. Very classical, but too chill IMO. Took forever to get service/waiter never brought my glass of water.I guess it’s fine for a solo traveler, such as I, just trying to chill and listen to good singing.Otherwise, boring af if you’re looking for any kind of “fun” karaoke/partyFood/cocktails are great tho-UpdateWednesday Karaoke pretty lit and more my pace

Saw a fun dinner show with friends this past week. Our burgers and sweet potato fries were great! Waitstaff was absolutely fantastic. Theo took care of the entire room. Great service!

My friends and I came here for trivia night and had some great food and great drinks! I got the Tito’s strawberry lemonade drink and it was so good! Service was great and this place has a very fun environment!

Went here on a Saturday night, mainly to go dancing, and it was SO fun!! Me and my friends came at 10pm, and the wait time was only 5 minutes; we had to pay a cover fee of $10 each though but it was definitely worth it! The music was good, and the people were fun to vibe with. It definitely felt super safe and comfortable to get drunk and dance

Before the Pandemic I would have give five stars to Club Cafe. Without the Buffet it is still good, but just "ordinary". Nothing special. I hope they bring back the Buffet at some point or at least offer a Desert with every Entre. That would be special. Bottom line is without the Buffet it is nothing to brag about.

One of the most fun bars in Boston. Always welcoming. I broke my elbow and came out with my friends in a sling and everyone was so cautious about not bumping into my injured elbow. Everyone has a place on the dance floor at club Cafe 😍

We made 3 reservations for 6 people each (18 people) for 830pm on a Saturday night and were all charged a $10 cover. I’ve never once been to a dinner reservation and have been charged a cover. I understand it’s a club late night, but we came for dinner. Seems like shady business to me. Kinda pathetic.

Even on a Thursday it had a fair decent crowd. I liked the vibe, drinks and the crowd. Some more space to sit would have been good

Long time staple. The dynamic of the crowd has changed (for the better) past few years (id say in part due to a number of other previous longstanding clubs closing). Great vibe, close to subway station, hosts numerous engaging events. Made any friends with locals and staff here. KARAOKE EVERY WEDNESDAY hosted by BritneyBeards often packed and leads to going to Legacy after (I should stop doing that haha). Not too crowded Thursdays, packed Fridays and Saturdays. Thank goodness I have a VIP pass

Very good time playing drag bingo! Fun and entertaining hosts and very classy inside. A little pricey.

Cute place to get a bit of entertainment has a restaurant, bar and dance floor in the back. We went to the “drag bingo” night held in the restaurant area. It was hard to hear the hosts of the bingo event with the current set up. It didn’t start on time and thus ran later than we had expected. The prizes for winning a round of bingo were fun, think “movie and chill” night of goodies. Though the movie was a DVD version. All of us who won a prize do not have access to a DVD player any more ☹️. But the treats and other items in the bag were fun would be used.Drink menu was great and had some interesting cocktails.

The food here is really not the greatest. At least when I went and got the chicken quesadilla it was awful. On top of that the waiter we had was awfully rude and seemed bothered by my table asking for drinks and food. Despite the negative interaction with the wait staff the dance floor and club part was awesome. Another weird thing is that the bathrooms in this place despite be gender all inclusive they do not have any tampon or pad machines which is very unfortunate.

The club is really fun once you get inside, bartenders are super nice. However, the security in line is very disrespectful unprovoked. Ive found the crowd to generally be very respectful, but it’s the type of security that will aggressively yell at you for being an inch too far onto the sidewalk while being unable to look you in the eyes. One security guard turned to me and said “you’re not special.”

I been calling them all week left several messages about my reservation, and online tickets. Still waiting for a call back from them. I Bought tickets to see drag show for myself, and friends. I live over an hour a way. No parking when we finally did find a parking space. We got to the door of the club. My experience as soon as we got to the door this extremely rude door guy took his job way too seriously. completely inappropriate. Like okay no problem but the tone of voice. The problem was that one of us didn’t have our Covid vaccination. He didn’t care for my friend to explain medical reason why. My expectations at that moment was that he could at least tell us who we could speak with from the show about refunding us money for our tickets. funny thing is a white male in front of us didn’t have his vaccinations but still got in. Not be be racist or disrespectful . completely inappropriate. We asked to speak to a manager. This is what was said “ we will keep one of your tickets and give you call tomorrow about refunding your money. ” Right” still waiting once again for a call back.” This night was supposed to be amazing for my friends, and I especially considering the fact we haven’t been out since the pandemic happened. They made this experience horrible, and not to mention it was my friends birthday as well! Never ever going there again myself or friends!!

Waited outside for an Uber during a blizzard under a covering next door. They yelled at us multiple times and called security since we were in front of a different business. We said we were waiting for an Uber and they had security remove us. This place is awful I'll never come back. They overcharge and think they are too good for what they are.

I been wanting to visit Boston for years , honestly never heard of this place. While I was at another Bar a friend recommended that I go there. Let me tell you about my experience as soon as you pull up this extremely rude drag queen that took her job way too seriously. thinking its funny to be rude or something that was completely inappropriate. Second everyone is screaming about the mask vaccine card, ID. Like okay no problem but the tone of voice. They were screaming at people. Not only my group. You have to fully vaxed to go. (Not an issue had all my documents) got in. Then you have to tip to pay to get in then pay again to hang your coats.I would avoid it all together. The music was good only plus side. But the whole staff was just wow. Awful experience and probably never going back. We’re all equal please give your staff some Etiquette lessons. I don’t usually post a negative review but this place i feel like people need to know the truth. Because everyone deserves to be treated with respect something you’re likely not going to get at this place.

I can’t say enough about what a wonderful experience I had at Club Cafe. We had a family event there and absolutely EVERYTHING was perfect!! The set up, the food, the attention to details and the absolutely EXCEPTIONAL staff. I know how challenging it is with so many businesses being short staffed but you would never know it here. They were right on top of things!!! In addition, they were kind, polite, and always willing to go above and beyond.Thank you, thank you, thank you Club Cafe Staff!!!’ ❤️❤️❤️

I always been around this place. I been there so many times. And this last weekend I went for first time after pandemic to have fun and eat. The club and fun and drinks good and really nice. But I am putting 3 stars coz I ate nachos (nachos was really good) but the a really rude server. Not friendly at all, rushing us and his attitude it was like he didn't wanted to be there... nothing like the old times

Sadly, there quesadillas with chicken. Left a bad taste in my mouth. Therefore I opened them up. And noticed 3 pieces of chicken the size of a fingernail. The rest was tomatoes. How terrible and unprofessional. Worse then a taco bell. Just more expensive. The dance floor was over packed. I felt like a sardine packed in a can. I'm proud of the exterior set up for identification process, in order to get in to the establishment.

A staple of queer Boston nightlife. Lines are usually long on weekends but move quickly. It's a great place to start your night. Has live DJs, bar food, and a mid-sized dancefloor with lights and projectors.

Good nightlife, the customers definitely make this place worth the time. The dance floor gets hot and steamy which is fun when you are in the mood to get low and get rowdy. Only complaint about this place would the music and the staff.

Came here on a whim... turned out great. Had the French toast casserole, which I was leery about. However, the hostess and waiter recommend it. So I went with it. It was good! The bacon on the side was good and crispy and there was plenty of it. It also came with fruit, which I could eat, I was too full.

Went on a Friday night in June for dinner - the host was super kind and informative, and our waiter was top notch, even though it was busy! They were respectful, accommodating, and really sweet - they even helped us pick out drinks since we were feeling indecisive! Me and my friend shared the buffalo chicken dip (which hit the spot 100%), they got the flatbread, and I ordered the chicken breast over spring risotto. My drink was a spicy margarita with a bit of mango at our waiters suggestion. All of it was delicious, hot, and well-timed. Will gladly come back, for dinner, drinks, or dancing, any day of the week!

Came here to dance right when Boston started opening up at the beginning of June. On the weekend (at least for now) you can expect to wait a long time—we were in line for about 2 hours (thank you COVID), but it was so much fun and you’ll always meet fun people both in line and in the club! Pretty cheap and delicious drinks as well—$9 cocktails when we went
