The Billionaire's Guide to: Boston


The Billionaire's Guide to: Boston

| December 1, 2015 | Lifestyle

Love is all around the Hub of the Universe, and it’s looking quite sexy.


The sexy new supper club Yvonne’s is the perfect spot for a romantic dinner date.

Do Not Disturb

XV Beacon (617-670-1500) blends Brahmin history with world-class luxe for a love temperature that’s piping hot. Special treat: Every Boston Common magazine guest will receive a signature box of chocolate truffles.

Art of Seduction

There’s nothing like artistic passion to ignite the flames of romance, so why not go gallery hopping? First stop: the DTR Modern Galleries (617-424-9700) to see the Damien Hirst series “I Love You,” featuring his iconic butterflies enclosed in a heart. Then stroll to Galerie d’Orsay (617-266- 8001) for the Salvador Dali collection and Martin Lawrence Galleries (617-369-4800) to view modern masters.

Shopping Spree

Jimmy Choo stilettos for her, a Louis Vuitton briefcase for him: Browse the boutiques at Copley Place (617-262-6600), where virtually every global luxury brand can be found. Enjoy VIP access with a personal shopper.

Date Night

The century-old culinary establishment Locke-Ober is reborn as the modern supper club Yvonne’s (617-267-0047). Its library bar is a perfect romantic nook, with cozy dining tables and lounge seating beside the historic fireplace. Special treat: Enjoy an off-the-menu Boston Common cocktail throughout January.

The Dance of Love

Boston Ballet (617-942-6398) prides itself on excelling in both the classics and modern-as-it-gets dance. “I believe art feeds our soul,” says Artistic Director Mikko Nissinen. “So what better way to spend a date?”

Heavenly Brunch

Snuggle into the front-window banquette at Puritan & Company (617-615-6195). Start your meal with the divine Church cocktail, mixed with gin, aperol, and lemon, then tuck into a sirloin steak and eggs topped with hollandaise sauce.

Pairs, Please

For a scene straight out of Norman Rockwell, head to the Frog Pond (617-635-2120) skating rink at the Boston Common. “We have marriage proposals here every season,” says general manager John Schaub. Warm up with a hot cocoa when you say the code words: “Boston Common magazine.”

Afternoon Delight

For a sensual retreat, the Green Tangerine Spa & Salon (617-585-6498) offers Drops of Jupiter: the Ultimate Urban Boston Experience, exclusively for Boston Common readers. Begin with a 50-minute couples treatment that includes a full-body massage and aromatherapy. Continue with a 50-minute facial, followed by couple’s hairstyling. Special treat: complimentary Champagne, chocolate-covered strawberries, body products, and hair products.
