A Guide to Nightlife at Alibi for First-Time Visitors

Alibi Bar & Lounge has a vibrant nightlife scene that caters to all tastes and preferences. Whether you are a social butterfly, night owl, or looking to elevate how you unwind after a long day, here's a guide to help you navigate Alibi as a first-time visitor.

Alibi's History

First and foremost, it's important to note that Alibi Bar and Lounge is located in the former Charles Street Jail. The unique location has since been transformed into the luxurious Liberty Hotel. On the first floor of the hotel, Alibi is a Beacon Hill hot spot boasting its chic ambiance with original bluestone floors, brick cell walls, and dim lighting to set the scene for creating your "alibi". In addition to the chic setting, Alibi hosts live DJs every Thursday, Friday, and Saturday starting at 10 pm. 

Our Nightlife Options

What separates your experience at Alibi from the rest are the various options you can choose to elevate your night out. From enjoying a drink at the bar, migrating to the dance floor, or setting your night up for success with a VIP experience, the choice is yours. But first, let us walk you through both options.

The Lounge

The trendy lounge at Alibi is a great place to indulge in a cocktail and food. As one of the hottest stops in the city, the dimly lit lounge, jail cell gates, and barred windows create an ambiance of being someplace forbidden. The former Charles Street Jail inspires the theme of Alibi. Enjoy an evening at the lounge for food and drinks before making your way to the dance floor for the remainder of the night.

The VIP Experience

The VIP Experience at Alibi is a luxurious way to spend an evening in Beacon Hill. When reserving a VIP table at Alibi, you can expect you and your guests to enjoy the following services. First, you will be greeted and brought to your plush seating for you and your guest list to use throughout the night. In addition to your reserved area, a dedicated server will provide bottle service or accommodate individual drinks for you and your guests. Please note that our VIP table reservations are limited and require a credit card to secure your reservation.
