Address: 25 School St.

Because of its size, Scholars is the main destination downtown for the after-work crowd. Though it appears to have the vibe of a pool hall, the bouncers will turn you away for wearing Chuck Taylors. Moneyed douches only. Everyone here has forgotten that no one in Boston dresses up for anything; the city’s cash flow comes from start-up guys who don't even own a pair of nice shoes. But you can live a douchey dream at Scholars.
