About the League


The Newbury Street League, founded in 1972, is a non-profit business association of approximately 350 members, representing the interests of its members on Newbury Street and in the Back Bay as both a commercial district and a community.  The two-fold Mission of the League is to Beautify and Maintain Newbury Street and to Market and Promote our Member Businesses.  

The following lists some of the programs in place to help us accomplish these goals.

Networking Receptions
Networking receptions continue to bring Newbury Street businesses together for the chance to meet one another and share what is going on with their business as well as what’s happening on Newbury Street. Thank you to the following businesses who have recently hosted these events and have so generously provided us with great food, wine and fun!
Summer Shack * Sonsie * Rochambeau
