Westborough Bars & Clubs

Sophia's 1270 Boylston Str. Being a family town Westborough is still a bit slow when it comes to late night venues, so we suggest you head into Boston, which is just down the road. Sophia's is probably one of Boston's best-unknown nightspots with its Spanish style decor offering dinner, dancing, coffee and talk under one roof. Make sure you arrive before 10pm, as the locals who do know about it, are always there.

Axis 13 Lansdowne Str. If you're looking for a head thumping heavy night Axis could be the place for you. This underground dance club starts pumping every evening at around 9.30pm, when the black lights begin to pulsate and the glow-sticks start whirling. Once you've had your fill of this head upstairs with your ID to chill out on one of the plush couches and get your head back into gear.

Mahoney's Pub –413 Park Ave. - this small street corner pub with its Guinness and accents will have you dreaming of the emerald hills of Ireland. Popular with the locals, strangers are made to feel very welcome and accepted.
