Best of Boston

2006 BEST Lesbian Club

Toast

Like its drinks, Toast’s female clientele is a blend of strong and smooth. Those looking for action grind on the dance floor. When the pulsing Madonna and Michael Jackson soundtrack puts the kibosh on conversation, seasoned regulars and experimental newcomers retreat to intimate banquettes for quiet chats. Though the sultry brick-walled lounge offers nightly themes like goth and ’80s, it’s during Friday’s ‘Dyke Night’ that things really get down and girly.
