Cocktail Party Venues Boston

When throwing an unforgettable cocktail party, your guests will be expecting more than appetizers and some mixers. Howl at the Moon is the only cocktail party venue in Boston with a totally unique feel that will dazzle your guests! Top-of-the-line hors d’oeuvres, picture-perfect drinks and the best live show in the city is only the start.

Our live music show can also be made optional for private events. The show can be tailored to meet your company’s needs.

It is your party—make it a show! Howl at the Moon offers plenty of ways to customize our space and turn your cocktail reception into so much more. Our semi-private area has plenty of room with food and drink stations, seating and mingling (please ask us about hosting options in our nightclub: Down Boston). You can even dress it up with custom signage, piano banners on stage and more! Plus, you will have a great view of our live band. Music is key, and Howl Boston’s players rock a genre-bending set of hits from throughout time—they even take requests!

Give your cocktail party a more casual flare by reserving a Happy Hour Party for your guests, including access to our buffet and a $1 drink ticket for each attendee. If you are bringing everyone to the reception, Howl at the Moon’s entire venue can be fully decked-out with whatever extras your unique party needs, including Howl’s legendary show, catering options, photo booths, ice luges, complementary audio visual equipment and so much more.

Obviously, a cocktail party is not complete without drinks—so we saved the best for last! Our extensive cocktail list contains original Howl flavors  and classics, plus our beer menu has plenty of domestic and imported brews to choose from. Send your cocktail reception to the Moon with one of our signature 86 oz. buckets in 10 delicious flavors, perfect as a table centerpiece and ice-breaker amongst new friends. You can even let your guests create for themselves with our custom drink stations.

We also love to host birthday partiesbachelorette parties, bachelor parties, holiday parties, corporate events and more.
