Every Sunday night Underbar holds a gay party called Hot Mess which completely lives up to its name.
Underbar is one of the only bars that stays open until 2am on Sundays so it’s definitely worth a visit.
Machine is normally a gay club with a pseudo-leather bar upstairs (Ramrod) but I’ve always found it to be completely lesbian friendly even during non-Dyke Night times.
Dyke Night also runs Fourth Fridays at the Milky Way, Venus Rising at the House of Blues and a slew of holiday specific parties.

While it’s not deadlocked New York City, driving can be slow and tedious. On the other hand, you can ride the MBTA system of subways and buses.

Jamaica Plain, or JP as the cool kids call it, is basically Boston’s lesbian stronghold.Although GQB used to be an actual sneak attack on a bar, the last few times I went GQB seemed to have rented out the space.
