Bond opened to huge talk in Boston. Admittedly, I was interested. I saw lines that were very long every time I went by so i hesitated on going. Finally I went one night. It was fun to dress up because the place is dressy. We got food and it is a 2 bite dish- not my fav. As the evening turned I saw the crowd get older. Bond had stretched the area of cougartown to a new area. Albeit these cougars were the sultry sexy one they were still cougars. Immediately following them a large influx of European men who love them. Then as the night when on the Europeon crowd took over and the cougars left with their hot men. Many of them were so refined, they were edgy cougars but definitely in the pack

Pros: bartenders are refined and well trained to smile

Cons: trained to smile

LOVE the swanky, money-inspired interior. Lots of men in suits on week nights, and a hip 30-something crowd on weekends.

I have been here once on a weeknight and it was great. I love the set up of the boutique hotel. On weeknights it's filled with the finance crowd from the neighboring investment shops, usually on the more mature side. I wish I could tell you how it is on the weekends, but I can't. After waiting for an hour in line, I chose to go else where.

If your idea of a good night out is to wait in a long line to get into an empty cocktail bar, then this is the place for you. We arrived around midnight, were entreated to a display of spectacular posturing from the door staff and then waited for around 30 minutes to get into what was essentially a half empty bar. While the decor and ambience is very chic, it really isn't worth the wait. It is a mystery to me why places in Boston behave like they are in New York and quite honestly, it's the kiss of death for any repeat business.

Pros: Architecture, Style

Cons: Long Wait

We went to Bond on a Saturday night to meet friends who were guests at the Langham Hotel. The bouncers seemed to take immense pleasure in explaining the hotel's "guest" policy (hotel guests can only bring in one person per room) and inserting us in the "general population" line. After waiting an hour to get in we found it was nothing more than a standard hotel bar with overpriced drinks, forgettable music, and lots of bored-looking people standing around. It's certainly a nice space with cathedral ceilings and grand decor, but the scenery isn't worth the trouble. And don't show up hungry unless you want to fork over $8 for a basket of bread! It might be a decent after work spot but not worth trekking to the middle of the financial district on the weekend and standing in line.

I was there last night and it was insanely busy, is this a new hot spot for Boston? There was a lot of young beautiful people there, the music was great and although the bar took a while to get to me my drinks I was very happy with them. I had the Dime Martini which the Bartender Kevin told me had Stoli Vanilla, Grand Marnier and peach schnapps topped off with champagne it was very good. I think I was understanding with the wait at the bar because they've just opened recently but some people weren't. I don't know many night spots in Boston that you don't have to wait 5 mins to get a drink, and none with this kind of atmosphere. There was a long line at the door but I heard they might start offering a half glass of champagne while you wait in line which I thought was a great idea. I have never seen this anywhere else so that would be cool. Overall I would recommend this place and I would definitely return.

Pros: Great Ambiance, Great Music, Beautiful People

Cons: Wait for drinks, Prices for Martini around $15
