STEP INTO SUMMER AT THE BOSTON HARBOR HOTEL
WITH SUMMER IN THE CITY

MAY 2014, BOSTON, U.S.A.

For three months this summer, Bostonians, visitors and adventurers big and small can enjoy all of the pleasures of a New England summer – sun-splashed days, breezy nights and most notably, the water. This summer, the Boston Harbor Hotel will once again become one of Boston’s liveliest outdoor entertainment venues when it launches its 16th annual Summer in the City Entertainment Series on Thursday, June 12, 2014 (continuing through Friday, August 29, 2014).



One of Boston’s most anticipated outdoor summer traditions, Summer in the City offers guests, visitors and local residents the opportunity to enjoy complimentary concerts, movies and live entertainment from the hotel’s unrivaled waterfront location. Now in its 16th year, the series has become a summer staple in Boston.  As the sun sets, the harbor comes alive with different bands performing nightly on the hotel’s floating barge. Cool breezes, passing yachts, Chef Daniel Bruce’s award-winning cuisine and cocktails al fresco all paint a lively scene that is reminiscent of the European seaside, but is entirely unique to Boston. With each night sporting a different theme from Summer Soul Tuesdays and Rat Pack Wednesdays to Blues Barge Thursdays and Movies by Moonlight Fridays and more, there is something for everyone to enjoy.


Soul Tuesdays: Playing a mix of R&B and soul, Tuesday’s bands will highlight favorites from legends such as Marvin Gaye, Al Green, James Brown, Otis Redding, Roberta Flack and Gladys Knight & the Pips.


Rat Pack Wednesdays: A tribute to the original Rat Pack, Wednesday nights will capture the swinging magic of this famed era with a contemporary spin on the classics of Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jr. and others.


Blues Thursdays: What began as the foundation for the Summer in the City Entertainment Series when it launched 16 years ago, the Blues Barge– anchored behind the Boston Harbor Hotel – now provides the setting for some of the best local and national blues artists to share their talents every Thursday in the summer.


Movie Night Fridays: Revisit Hollywood’s silver screen and modern classics with an all-star lineup of movies every Friday night against the backdrop of the starlit harbor. Start the weekend early and enjoy cocktails or dinner before the movie begins at dusk.
