Located within the Charlesmark Hotel, the lounge is a bustling mix of hotel guests, local professionals, and stylish savvy trendsetters. The Charlesmark Lounge is a unique venue and considered by some to be the best kept secret of the Back Bay. This hidden jewel boasts a unique design concept from award winning designer Dennis Duffy, a graduate of the Parsons School of Design. Perfect for socializing with your friends and co-workers, sleek and sexy to the eye, yet cozy in feel, the Charlesmark is the perfect mix between chic hotel martini bar and neighborhood hang out.
Open for cocktails and dinner every night at 5PM. The Boylston Street outdoor patio is open weather permitting. The dinner menu features authentic Thai cuisine.
