ANYONE WHO GOES to school in Boston has seen them, the fabulously dressed group of students, who speak really broken English and walk around in packs on Newbury Street. And as you see them in their designer outfits, you may wonder, where are they going?
Well it’s no secret that when the wealthy class of internationals arrive in Boston the first thing they do is take out daddy’s credit card out for a spin on a Friday at Venu Boston (100 Warrenton street) to dance the night away to a mix of House music as well as the adjacent Latin room, which plays Spanish songs for the students from the south of the border.
On Saturdays you can find this same crew at the infamous recess Saturday party at Splash Ultra Lounge (150 Kneeland Street) where Miami style pool parties meet the Boston chill in a party that goes on from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. During the summer they even open up their rooftop pool for those brave enough to ruin their outfit by jumping in. One may think that after all these hours of day drinking these students would be exhausted and go to bed early, but make no mistake, these hardcore party animals continue the party at Bijou Nightclub (51 Stuart street) where the expensive cover charges don’t prevent the Euros from partying it up as if they were on the other side of the pond. Complete with a huge line of V.I.P. tables, this relatively new club is an international student favorite because of its similarities to the clubs they frequent in their home countries.
Now Boston’s international elite students aren’t exclusively about partying and clubs, they eat too! You may find these Chanel clad kids curing their hangover at Paramount Beacon Hill (44 Charles street) every Sunday or during the week enjoying sangrias and outdoor patio dining (given that the weather allows it) at Scoozi Newbury (237 Newbury Street) or Cafeteria Boston (279 Newbury street) where on any random Friday afternoon the last language you are likely to hear is English.
Given their profound love for sangria you may also find them on a Thursday evening at BarLola Tapas Lounge (160 Commonwealth av.) where they wine and dine while listening to live music by Los Rumberos. As snobby as their lifestyle sounds, alcohol seems to be the great equalizer since the foreign kid’s drunk food of choice are oversized $3 pizzas from New York Pizza (224 Tremont street) which is conveniently located right by Bijou, Splash and Venu!
