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 so generously hosted these events over the past year and have provided us with great food, wine and fun!
Nespresso  ~ The Paint Bar ~ Papa Razzi ~ Taj Boston
Itadaki ~ Women’s Lunch Place ~ CafeTeria Boston ~ Met Back Bay

Map & Directory
All members receive a complimentary listing in our NSL Map & Directory which is published twice per year, Spring & Fall.  Copies are distributed throughout Boston Area Hotels and Visitor & Transportation Centers.

Advertising opportunities at reduced rates are available through our member publications and the Media to help your individual businesses through our “Destination Newbury Street” initiative to Drive Shoppers to Newbury Street.
