went there this past saturday night to meet up with a bunch of friends- made sure to get there at a decent time since I heard the line can get long. so arrived at 9:30 and line was long but decided to be patient and wait in it since again i was meeting up with friends. while waiting, noticed there was another line on the other side for vip guests who had reserved tables which is understandable as well as for the people "who were with the vip party." also while i was waiting, i noticed the bouncers would come down the line and pull out groups of girls and allow them to cut the line and go right in which is great if youre a girl there with only your girlfriends but aggravating if you're not. so finally make my way up to the front after 2 HOURS of waiting in line and bouncers saying "it could be 5 min, it could be 25." they let 5 people out of the party of 6 go in in front of us and kept one poor guy to wait while his friends went in and proceeded to kick him out of line when he kept questioning them. after being disgusted by this act made by the bouncers who thought they were hot stuff, they proceeded to tell us we may not even get in after waiting more than 2 hours! absolutely ridiculous. do not waste your time
Greatest Bar in Beantown!!!! – I'm usually not one to bother writing reviews but was really surprised to see the bad input on Rock Revolution. Until Revolution came to town there were no cool places to hang out in Boston that played such an awesome mix of fun music to dance to! I've been on both Fridays and Saturday nights and have a blast every time I go! A table at $300 is well worth the money for a large group (especially if it gets you in for free and you get a bottle of vodka with the mixers at that price?) We wind up there at some point most weekends! Sure there's a line but is there a place in Boston worth going to that doesn't have a line? These bars and clubs have a capacity strictly enforced by the BFD, they can only have so many people inside at a time or they can be shut down (think Station). It's crowded every time I go (which is often) but in my opinion, the music and the crowd inside are well worth the wait! As a life long resident of Boston this is the only place in town that I would bother waiting in line at!
Revolution Rock Bar is the Boston bar to go to.. – You dont need to be a rockstar to party like one!!! Revolution is my favorite spots for going out in Boston. Whenever I have a friend in town I have to take them to Revolution. It has a great crowd.. The crowd is a lil older than some of the "21 only" bars in Fanny Hall ... the music is great... and the bar tenders know how to make the best drinks!!!! I have never had to wait in line for this bar. I think if there is a line it is only really late at night (most places in Boston will have a long line after 1230am...what else do you expect if you go out too late!!)
Best Bar ~Revolution~ – First let me start by saying I think Revolution Bar Rock is by far the best bar in Boston. I was born and raised in Boston so I know there isn't a bar out there like this one.
The service is great and the workers are friendly.
For those who wrote bad reviews I have a few things to say.
YA Heard- If it was your friends 30th b-day you and yoru friends couldn't of been so cheap and not a table.
SAC603- GET A NEW GIRLFRIEND! any guy that has a girlfriend that will go into a bar without him is just plain stupid.
Revolutionsucks- your just plain english DUMB. why would you wait in line for 2 hours if you didn't see anyone inside. Also I highly doubt you know any "toolbag" workers or the "loser" owner because if you did I doubt you would be waiting in line. grow up..
Shammgod- all i have to say is that you made yourself sound like a loser "Big Time Drunk" did you ever think maybe thats why you didn't get in...
PT17- You said you spent "2 Grand" at another bar... why didn't you just cough up $300 for a table and shut up.
Oh and I thought you left the line.... If thats the case how would you know the crowd was "dull"..........
For those who haven't been to Revolution don't let others fill our head with all this negative reviews. They are clearly upset that they didn't get in right away. If you have to wait alittle I would because you won't regret it after. The music is great and the drinks are priced good.
Best Bar – I love it at Rock Bar! I have so much fun! Went there this weekend had a great time, never even waited in line. It was great!
MORE COW PRINT – Cow print benches surround low cocktail tables perfect for setting for after work while the stage and dance floor cater to your inner rock star if you feel like coming out of your shell. The stars were aligned when Revolution Rock Bar opened its doors as we finally have a club that isn't pretentious or snobby in Boston. Run by and frequented by true Bostonians, enjoy your beer during the week or your cosmo on the weekend in the heart of the hub. Run, don't walk, to Revolution on Saturday nights!
Best Bar in Boston!!--Amazing Service--Can't wait for every Saturday night!!! – This is the best bar in Boston, the crowd is beautful, the bartenders amazing (in both looks and service) and the music incredible. Any time I have friends in town from other cities we always go to Revolution, and everyone is blown away at how much fun it is!! This is what a bar/club is supposed to be!!
If you have not been to this place you are truly missing out! The atmosphere is electric and the staff is so personable and accomodating which is hard to find at a lot of Boston night spots!
Overall this bar is amazing for the atmosphere, music, and people---get down to Rev Rock and see what I mean!!
Awsome atmosphere for either a rocker or high class peeps – My boys and I came in on a Saturday night to a huge line (which generally means a good thing). I was not about to wait in line (I don't wait anywhere) so we were going to take off. However one of the doorman came over and told us that they had a couple tables available. The guy explained the process and introduced us to the VIP host.
The whole time they were totally professional and treated us with the upmost respect. Once thing I noticed is that they would go through the line and explain to people the reason for the long line, which I thought was the right thing to do.
The VIP host directed us to our table which was choicely located right in front of the main window. All the waitress were Hot! The DJ had just the right tunes a mix of techno/rock mixed in with some R&B.
Overall I believe this is the best place in town!
Great time! – I originally went to Revolution for a work function but found myself back there last weekend for a birthday party. There was a pretty significant line at 10:30, but the door man told us that there is a separate line if you reserve a private table (which was done for the BDay). It worked perfectly because we got right in. It was pretty cool. They give the VIP treatment with a host introducing himself and escorting us to the table. Good service. The DJ played a wide range of music that everyone in my group liked. Our waitress was at our table all night and took really good care of us. By 12:30 the place was packed, but a good kind of packed where it was more girls than guys and a fun vibe. I?ll definitely check it out again.
Worst Bar in the City – This place is an absolute joke. I need to figure out who the business guru who thought making people wait in line for 2 hours is a good idea. I can see the plan now..."bro we got a sick mashup mix tonight....let's get some buzz and make everyone wait until midnight to get in! I easily saw 30 people cut out before my group of 20 did. I was there on Saturday before 930 too. NOBODY WAS INSIDE...unless you count dudes with fake tans, spiked hair and t shirts about 3 sizes too small crushing woo-woo and alabama slammers. Last time I looked this bar was in the most boring spot in Boston...not the Vegas strip. This bar kept out the wrong people. We're big time drunks who have hot dance moves and know a ton of people. I can't wait until they turn that place into a Dunkin Donuts in 3 months.
