Girls Night Out

At the Mass St. Fish House

May is the perfect month for a fun evening out on Massachusetts Street. Not too hot. Not too cool. And summer's sweltering heat typically hasn't arrived quite yet.

One tasty spot to gather with your girlfriends is the Mass St. Fish House. The atmosphere is fun and relaxed. It's a lovely mix of lively and cozy, and the outdoor seating is an excellent place to kick back after a long day at work or a busy afternoon of shopping.

"We're always playing great music, and our staff is really fun," says owner Laura Klein. "We definitely see a lot of girls' night happy hours pretty regularly."

Klein also notes many guests make the restaurant part of a Mass. Street progressive dinner. They visit the restaurant for happy hour and then go to one of the neighboring spots for dinner. Or they might come in after their meal for dessert.

"Honestly, I love the killer happy hour specials like Bubbles and Oysters," Klein says. "How can you have a bad time with a dozen oysters and a bottle of sparkling wine for $30? That's the recipe for girls' night success!"

Here are some Mass St. Fish House cocktail favorites to add to your drink recipe repertoire.
