It’s really, finally here. We’re talking about summertime, of course. The Boston Harbor Hotel’s Summer in the City series helps make the livin’ a little easier with live music and movies on the waterfront.

Bands will perform on the hotel’s floating barge for Soul Tuesdays, Rat Pack Wednesdays, and Blues Barge Thursdays. Performers for the themed nights include James Montgomery, Toni Lynn Washington, Bruce Marshall, the Mike Dutra Strictly Sinatra Band, Soul City, and Sweet Tooth & The Sugar Babies. The end of the week is reserved for Movie Night Fridays, showing classic films like “The Wizard of Oz,” “Casablanca,” “Citizen Kane,” “Vertigo,” “Cool Hand Luke,” and “West Side Story.”

While you’re being entertained, kick back and enjoy al fresco dining and cocktails.
