really great place – I seriously go there all the time. The line gets really long so i suggest you go there around like 9. Everything about the place is awesome. When you go in there you just have so much fun. The staff is amazing and so nice and the drinks are great. The atmosphere in there is awesome too. It's a rock bar so obviously they play awesome rock songs and have great rock posters hanging everywhere. There is also a vintage photo booth that is really fun after you've had a couple drinks =) YOU WILL HAVE A GREAT TIME!!
Awesome Bouncers – I went there on Thursday night. There was a line.... definitely wasn't packed insdie. They just want it to look better than it really is. We waited and waited while the bouncers let their annoying/trashy friends in. PS... the bouncers there think they are gods - Calm down - It's just Revolution Rock Bar on HIgh Street (completely out of place in that location in the financial district). I've been there before and have had fun, but after the last time trying to get in on a Thursday.... I'm all set and will NEVER go back.
Stylish bar and lounge injects some energy and attitude into the Financial District's nightlife scene. – In Short
It comes as a surprise that a rock-themed bar would be located in the buttoned-up Financial District. Dimly lit and filled with leather banquettes and concert photos, Revolution stands in stark contrast to the Irish bars and straightforward dives that populate the area. Bottles of beer and designer cocktails share table space with wood-grilled pizzas and other upscale bar food. Live music and DJs keep the crowd moving several nights a week.
WAY Overrated – The first time I went to this bar was on a Saturday night and we waited 45 minutes with the line barely moving. I went up to the bouncer and asked him if the line was ever going to move or if I was wasting my time and he basically said I would not be getting in anytime soon. I went to a bar around the corner and came back a little more than an hour and got in. Once inside the guys who were standing behind me told me that right after we left the whole entire line got let inside, so basically I was lied to. I tried this bar again last thursday and although there was not a line and we negotiated the door price down from $15 each to $20 for my group of 3 I still did not have a good time here. The music was HORRIBLE. NO ONE was dancing unless they were doing imitations of bad eighties moves just to keep themselves amused. This should have been an indicated to change the music. My friend asked the DJ if he was going to play some hip hop and he said yes but then never did. And the drinks are DEFINITELY watered down. I could taste nothing in my vodka tonic. And then I got a shot of yager which was $10. The prices for the quality were just way too much and the atmosphere is not great at this bar either. There is just no reason why I would ever pay money to go in there again. There are much better places right around the corner.
Great if you like watered down booze – This is my first review of any restaurant on a bar online. Went to rock revolution a few weeks ago. I don't take exception to overpriced drinks, but i do have a problem with the fact that they were unbelievably watered down. My friend and I ordered shots of vodka in the beginning of the night, i think $12 or $14 each. I swear to god there was probaly 25% vodka in those shots, it was like drinking tap water. Note to owners: those stories have a way of getting around.
Shameless self-promotion – I wish the people that own and work at this bar would stop writing flattering reviews for themsleves
I will never EVER go back - DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME/MONEY – I was in contact with the reservation girls WEEKS before my party, I brought 20 of my friends, to celebrate my birthday and instead I had the worst experience of my life. The reservation people had quoted me a certain price and when I received the bill it was over double what they quoted. The manager would not listen to his employee and proceeded to be extremely unprofessional and rude to me and my guests. Not only did he refuse to charge me the price I had been told, he also treated me horrifically through the whole ordeal. For someone in the service industry his lack of manners and professionalism was appalling. My friends and I will never return to this establishment after this incident and I would not recommend that anyone frequent this bar. The line is long, and when you reserve a table they try to screw you. Either way its a lose lose situation, not even worth a glance at this place, many better bars to go to in Boston with employees that actually care about their customers and the service they provide.
This is a Revolution of good food. Look for a good atmosphere with nice staff . Then keep the revolution in Securities mind Sasha Azarmi Wachovia

I'd rather stay in on a Saturday night – This place is way too over-hyped. My friends and I waited in line for 2 hours just to get into this bar, and it wasn't nearly full of people at all. The music was ok, the atomsphere was not worth the wait, and the people working there were not especially the nicest people I've ever encountered. My friends did not enjoy it either. We dislike this bar so much, we refuse to go back, even though a good friend is having his bday there. Sad thing is, he understands why we don't wanna go back and is totally ok with it! I will never go back to this bar.
Biggest Waste of Time – Do not waste your time with this bar. I have "attempted" to go to this bar twice and both times I had absolutely horrible experiences, I will never bother going ot this bar again. The first time I went to this bar I made sure to get there early to avoid any lines which I got in within 5 minutes however the remainder of our party who showed up only a few minutes later ended up waiting over 30 minutes with no movement in line meanwhile the entire bar had only about 25 people in it at the time. Needless to say we refused to let the remainder of our party wait in the freezing cold February weather and left. The second time I attempted this bar I arrived at 9:30 once again to avoid a line which I ended up standing in for 20 minutes until finally we spoke with the bouncer who said they would not let anyone in until they filled up the VIP tables at which that point we'd be lucky if we got in before 11pm. Who do these people think they are? Worst bar experience in Boston to date, so not worth it!
