Centered among the sprawling red bookcases and under oval hanging LED Lights, the Boylston Lounge is flush with 21st-century flair and library chic.

Sip on a specialty drink while you mingle in between the vibrant red stacks and then lead your team to dessert in Deferrari Hall below, where the overhead skylight shines plenty of natural light and shimmers of the evening on to your seated dinner or dessert display.  For even smaller events, clients can also entertain in Teen Central and enjoy the hip industrial vibe, which is perfect for the corporate client looking to inspire their team.
