Summer in the City


From June 9th – August 26th, experience the best of a New England summer with sun-drenched days, waterfront views and breezy nights. Watch the sun set on the Atlantic Ocean while listening to live entertainment and enjoying al fresco dining at the 23rd annual Summer in the City Entertainment Series. Join us at the Harborwalk Terrace and Rowes Wharf Sea Grille as the temperatures rise for one of Boston’s most anticipated summer traditions.


Tuesdays through Thursdays, the harbor comes alive with one of the best things to do in Boston as different bands performing nightly on the hotel’s floating barge stage. Bostonians and visitors can look forward to different nightly themes including Pop Soul Tuesdays, Rat Pack Wednesdays and Blues Thursdays. After a two-year hiatus, Movies by Moonlight Fridays return with an all-star lineup of movies shown against the backdrop of the starlit harbor. Cool breezes, passing yachts, and Chef David Daniels award-winning cuisine all paint a lively summer scene not to be missed.
