Boston North Limousine’s fleet of spacious vehicles is kept in prime condition under the attentive eye of its staff. Guests can choose from an upscale selection of sedans and SUVs. Inside these plush cabins, passengers can put their feet up, throw back a drink, and make a list of baby names for all the highways they’ve adopted.
Inside Kings, it can be hard to pinpoint the source of clattering sounds and uproarious cheers. The noise might stem from the bowling section, where glowing squares of abstract, retro wall art bookend the alleys. It might also come from ricocheting billiard balls, a well-aimed skee-ball, or a shuffleboard shot in the game room. Maybe someone spotted a celebrity—Bill Murray, Salma Hayek, and Lady Gaga are all on an extensive list of past famous visitors.
Wherever their origins, the telltale echoes of competition and camaraderie beckon to guests throughout the venue. They're accompanied in the air by the scents of comfort food, from staples such as sesame ginger wings to inventive fusions such as cheeseburger spring rolls. Sweeter aromas waft from multiple bars as the staff flavors martinis with gummy bears, pop rocks, and ice cream instead of the traditional fixings, olives or entire lemons on toothpicks.
As for sights, the surroundings blend vintage flair with luminous technology. More than 30 high-definition televisions line the space, broadcasting sports games and bowling scores. Though the game-room amenities differ slightly based on the town—Boston's Back Bay has six Brunswick Gold Crown pool tables, and Dedham boasts four miniature-roller-ball lanes—each Kings location hosts group events, including parties and corporate getaways where you can finally laugh at your boss's ridiculous shoes. Weekly themed nights for the public also encourage dancing, karaoke, and trivia.
Centrally located and easily accessible from all major routes in the city, Symphony Garage ensures safe storage of vehicles 24 hours a day, every day of the year, with valet services that slip cars in and out of spaces to save owners time. A generous 10-foot overhead grants safe passage to rides of all sizes. With one month’s worth of unlimited parking, drivers can drop off their four-wheeled steeds and head straight to Fenway Park for nine innings of Americana or stroll through Back Bay at their leisure to amass ideas for future gingerbread-house competitions. Steps away, Symphony Hall beckons music lovers with orchestral arrangements of freshly polished notes, the last tinklings of which will have barely faded by the time the garage’s 30-minute call-ahead service summons patrons' cars, affording a head start on beating the traffic home.
For more than a decade, Harris Limousine's extensively trained drivers have transported passengers around town in luxuriously appointed vehicles outfitted with plush seats complemented by wood accents and leather trim. They shuttle flight-bound patrons to the airport in three-passenger sedans or a four-passenger SUV, helping them avoid the hassles of finding parking or digging a hole large enough to hide their car. Drivers also whisk passengers away aboard 6- or 10-passenger limousines to bars and clubs, a matrimonial ceremony, or a business meeting at a grocery store. The fleet contains a stretch SUV Hummer, a mini party bus, and a stretch Denali to accommodate groups of 10 or more.
