Descent, Theatre District
This past weekend, my lovely sister Sabrina Diana came to visit me. I love having visitors come from out of town because I love playing the hostess with the mostest. I always make sure to take my visitors to the most hot and happening places.
Since Descent is the newest launch in Boston, I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to check it out. There has been so much hype around this place and why not? It's a part of the reputable W hotel, centrally located, and no cover charge. Sorry, but the hype is simply hype - at least on Saturday night.
The club itself is actually very sexy. I love the colors and modern furniture. But there is something about the shape of the place that adds to the awkwardness I'm about to explain. So you walk downstairs and it's basically just a wide hallway. There's the bar on the right and open space which you can either walk through to get to the "lounge" area or stay.
The music was so loud. The best way for me to describe it was ecstasy music - music you should be jamming to if you've taken ecstasy. I liked it but no one was dancing... except for me. LOL. It was so weird and not to mention boring. If you're going to have crazy beats like that, people should be dancing! However, I think that along with my crew, everyone at Descent was equally confused as to what they were supposed to do. Do you dance? Do you mingle? Do you stay with your own people? Questions, questions.
As far as the clientele goes... let's just say it was very diverse. I am going to give Descent the benefit of the doubt in terms of population of the club because there was a snowstorm earlier in the day. You know how we Bostonians are, the minute there's snow, we coop ourselves up in our heated apartments and drink wine all night.
In any case, I don't want to rule Descent out completely given the circumstances on Saturday night. Maybe I will have a more eventful experience in the Spring time...
