vox, new hot cougartown, not even initiated... YET – I have only popped in and out of Vox recently and found that it seems to have emerged as cougarville. I
think wit the growing vox-population of meat heads the cougars came fast. They do many private parties that are a blast and the place is always crowded. Vox is a great spot; Centrally located off he green line. Its for very hip spicy ladies who want to have fun and get a little loose. It is always crowded with just... beautiful people...? Tenders are great and very talented and usually at least one wins best of Boston and the drinks are deeelish.
People will be surprised I'm initiating it in the cougar town lines but it is!
Weekend Hotspot – Vox is somewhat of a hotspot for the 25+ which is a nice alternative to the younger "frat house" crowd at Pour House or Whiskeys. The martini menu is quite diverse and filled with top-shelf booze. The barstaff are happy to make substitutions or shake it extra vigorously if you like ice particles(like I do). I found that the martinis, however, are somewhat inconsistent; during the day I get a garnish and at night I have no chance. Overall its a fun place to go to if you're not in the mood for an Irish Pub. (I've never had the food here)
Where to flirt... and what to drink! – I find its best to start here first - before moving on to other less crowded places for the rest of your night out. Sitting at the bar is a great way to meet new people because then you can help them get the attention of the bartender and share some of your space, but only if they are worthy. Get the bar munchies? Try their french fries - it’s off the bar menu - small portion but enough to satisfy at least two people. Now for the best part, their drinks! The flirtini - I had to take a picture the first time I ordered because the color was exquisite - and just the right shade of pink. Vodka (a girl’s best friend), cranberry and pineapple juice, and a champagne float! Bring the girls (or the guys) and mix and mingle!
Great Parties, Great Food, Great Drinks – I’ve been to Vox a few times and have only good things to say about my experiences there.
The first few times I went were for parties – Vox is apparently very easy to schedule events with, because our class used to have events there each semester. They have two bars – upstairs and downstairs, and a great décor, though I guess you could argue it’s a little confusing to get to the bathrooms. It can also get cramped fast.
In addition to our private parties I also attended Vox’s awesome Halloween party in 2009, which was a great time! One of the more affordable, fun Halloween parties going on that weekend. I’ve found the drinks to be good, the staff to be very professional, and the atmosphere to be a lot of fun.
The bar touts their dozens of martinis, but they have a ton of drink options and I’ve ordered a few different drinks and never been disappointed.
But this past week I went for the first time to actually eat something – their restaurant is running a promotion in February - if you go before 7 you get half off the entire food menu. I was pleasantly surprised with the food! I ordered the Sirloin Oscar and it was excellent, my friend had the goat cheese salad with salmon. Service was great too, with an attentive waiter and helpful staff.
The atmosphere is great too, with lots of spacious booths, some TV's, and even a fireplace. Its a great place for dinner or a date, though its expensive when you aren't there during a discount time. Expect something like $90 for two people if you order some $10 martinis with an appetizer and entrees.
Overall this is a great bar or restaurant and I suggest you check them out next time you’re in Copley.
Vox Populi for Drinks? No thanks! – Every time I am dragged to Vox Populi, it is against my will and usually the location of somebody else's birthday party. The bar scene on the weekends is always packed with men wearing too tight Ed Hardy shirts. Even if you ignore the scene, the bar staff is sullen at best and their cocktails are really poorly made, overly priced and way too sweet. I really don't understand why people love this bar or make it their regular spot. As for me? No thanks!
Great Food! – I went for Restaurant Week and the food was amazing! I have been craving more of the gazapacho with crab meat. The mahi-mahi was also delicious. I went out on a limb and tried a drink with soju (which I had never heard of - I think it was called Tyku), mint and oranges. It was refreshing and a great accompaiment to my yummy meal.
Sexiest Bread Pudding – GIVE A RAISE TO WHOEVER MADE THAT BREAD PUDDING
Great food, things need to be simplified a little bit on main courses with flavors. Portions can be a little small. Waitress' needs more charm. Didn't have cocktails though they were presented well on other tables.
Great Valentine menu! – Had a great time Valentine"s Day! The broken heart martini with white and milk chocolate liquer and chambhord was delicious. It should be on your martini menu. The only drawback is we waited half hour for our table but the hors d'oeuvres at the bar helped pass the wait time. The wait staff (We had a waiter/server and waitress since there were four of us.) were very attentive. My husband enjoyed his oyster with the surprise cajun aioli. The lobster cake was delicious with visible claw meat coming out of the cake with a Bobby Flay-like sauce on the plate, since I have eaten at two of his restaurants, that was delicious and different then the mayonnaise sauces I usually have. The kobe beef, my husband ordered, was perfectly prepared as well as my Chilean Sea Bass. The chocolate trio was delicious. My friend was much enamored of the white chocolate creme brulee. I could have used more bread pudding but it was an acceptable serving since it was a trio, and it was a fourth course. We ate not far from the bar, but even with the bar full of patrons the noise level was much less then some Northend restaurants which we haven't returned to due to the loudness and cafeteria- like environment. I also greatly enjoyed the wine pairings that were perfect with each course. I will definitely return to this restaurant especially with it's great location in Copley. I want to try the Pumpkin Martini. I will come and bring friends.
Great place! – I really love this place. I have eaten here twice, the food was awesome, and we had the best waitor.
Great bachelorette party! – I booked dinner here for my sister-in-law's bachelorette party in July and everything was fabulous. We had a private room that was beautiful, with our own personalized menus for the night. The staff both in making the reservation and once we were there were awesome. One of our waiters, Thomas, was simply the best. He was so fun and accomodating. Lastly, and most importantly, the food was great. There were 15 of us, so the odds that someone wouldn't like something were high, but everyone just raved about their meals from start to finish, and the bride-to-be loved her pistachio cheescake dessert. Highly recommended for special gatherings. The coordinator for private events, Jasmin, was a delight to work with.
