The deal: Guilt, which opened in early June, is one of Boston’s newest night life venues and is quickly gaining popularity among the city’s clubgoers. Since August, Guilt has hosted a variety of popular DJs, including DJ Profenna. Posh maroon-and-gold couches line the walls, and the warm lighting is very inviting. “Guilt is like the little sister of Royale,’’ says Jamison LaGuardia, director of events and marketing. “[It’s] a smaller venue, but we try to encapsulate the same kind of energy.’’ The DJ booth is located across from an elevated stage area overlooking the dance floor, and a full bar sits immediately adjacent to the entrance with a second full island bar in the middle of the club. “We try to keep it heavy on the dance side,’’ says LaGuardia. “You’ll hear everything from Swedish House Mafia to Lady Gaga and some hip-hop, too.’’
The DJs: DJ Irth will be opening for DJ Greg Schneider, and both will be spinning dance music all night long.
Who goes there? “We have a very diverse crowd. A big range of people come out,’’ says LaGuardia. The crowd ranges from people in their early 20s to 30s.
Music you might hear: The night will be driven by house beats, but Schneider will keep the party going according to what the room dictates. “I let the crowd drive my track selection. I never go in with a set play list,’’ he says.
The drink: Beer is always a popular choice at the bars, and Grey Goose is the choice for those with table service.
The tip: “Come out and look sophisticated. We want to make sure everyone is safe and comfortable and having a good time,’’ says LaGuardia.
