Meet me on Newbury Street

 

One of the things we love most about our Boston store is the sheer vibrancy that radiates throughout its historic Back Bay location. The Boston Public Library, Public Garden and countless award-winning restaurants, hair salons and specialty stores (like us!). We've picked out a few of our favorite places to share with you for your next visit to Basiques.

L'Aroma Café (85 Newbury Street): Located just a few blocks away from our boutique, jump-start your morning with one of L'Aroma's caffeine-infused inspirations. We like the perkiness of their espresso macchiato, and especially love to cool off with a hibiscus tea lemonade during the warmer months. Grab a croissant for breakfast (they have four to choose from), and be on your way!

Beaucage Salon & Spa (71 Newbury Street): The style team at Basiques has helped update your wardrobe; now, let Beaucage help update your look. Hair services (cut, color and specialty treatments) are fairly priced for this decadent neighborhood; skin and spa services are quick yet relaxing, and will leave you feeling pampered.

The Boston Public Library (700 Boylston Street): It's easy to lose yourself in the hustle and bustle of the city. Though technically one block over from our beloved address, the BPL serves as an oasis in the middle of this metropolitan madness—the architecture alone is worth a visit. Check the website for (free) tour times, and be sure to check out the courtyard on the way out.

Piattini (226 Newbury Street): If you've worked up an appetite, wind down at Piattini (“small plates” in Italian), where authentic Italian food is served to share, tapas-style. It can be hard to find amidst weekend crowds—keep your eyes peeled for a small orange awning—and seating is first-come, first-serve. Try the patio, the eggplant melanzane, and a glass of chilled rosé to cap off your day on Newbury.
