Best of Boston

2008 Best Dance Club

Gypsy Bar

The average reveler out on the town cannot avoid certain pitfalls: long lines, jerk doormen, megaexpensive drinks. And so we mean this in the most complimentary of ways: At Gypsy, a bumpin’ dance haven full of celebs (both quasi and real), the line isn’t as intolerable, doormen aren’t such jerks, and drinks are only mildly overpriced. There’s a huge dance floor and a separate lounge, plus mesmerizing jellyfish-filled aquariums, all worth admiring if you can—or even care to—see past the haze of beautiful people bathed in red light.
