Best Back Bay Spots to Watch the Seasons Change

Living in New England, Bostonians are used to the roller coaster weather that pops up in between the Winter and Spring seasons. However, there are plenty of places locals can sit back and enjoy the ever-evolving weather. Here are some of our favorite places to embrace the changing seasons.


226 Newbury Street, Boston, MA 02116

Sometimes, Boston’s winters are gray, cold and miserable. A little wine, however, might provide you with some much-needed winter relief. Thick reds are packed full of immune-boosting antioxidants, and Piattini, an Italian wine bar on Newbury Street, is one of the best places to grab a glass. Yes, it’ll be too cold to sit out on its impressive patio, but the bar’s interior decor more than makes up for that. With its brick columns and comfy couches, this place is one of Back Bay’s best kept winter secrets.

Select Oyster Bar

50 Gloucester Street, Boston, MA 02115

Over on nearby Gloucester Street, not too far from 30 Dalton, Select Oyster Bar serves succulent seafood in a cozy bistro-style setup, providing you with the perfect atmosphere to watch the seasons change. Located in a former townhouse, just up from Boston Architectural College, Select is the brainchild of Chef Michael Serpa, combining traditional food with contemporary décor including exposed brick walls, wooden floors and modern art. We love settling into a snug corner here, to order a taste of seafood, indulge in a glass of wine and watch the season change from one of the huge windows that span floor to ceiling.

Render Coffee

563 Columbus Avenue, Boston, MA 02118

Render Coffee understands that nothing beats a hot cup of Joe during the brisk end of winter, or a chilly early spring morning. Offering a selection of wintry blends and traditional spring bold flavors in their bistro, there is something for everyone. There’s also a breakfast and lunch menu, with tasty favorites like club sandwiches, bagels with cream cheese and slices of thick quiche – perfect snacks that make this place one of the most popular indie coffeehouses in Boston.

New England is known for its gorgeous changes of season, bringing an exciting feeling of new beginnings to the area. So pull up a chair and enjoy a snack or a glass of wine as you watch the vibrant colors begin to blossom this Spring.
