The interior of Cure Lounge was designed by John Stefanon of JFS Design Studio, Inc. The design aesthetics of Cure Lounge were drawn from a strong focus on history and mood. Originally designed to be the ladies lounge and orchestra area to the theater this uniquely beautiful space called for an understated elegance evocative of the period.
Finished with a “Victorian Chic” design, the glamorized cues of Cure Lounge are evident from the moment you step in. Bold dramatic statements of shapes and patterns with a subtle, sophisticated color palette, balance and juxtapose each other in Jing-Jang form to bring a unique vibe to this historical Boston gem.
Cure Lounge’s mood is enhanced within as you transition from the Main Lounge to the Back Lounge and a more surreal aesthetic introduces what use to be the orchestra pit area. The inspiration of “moths drawn to a flame” called for dim lighting and elements were selected to transport patrons into a warm summer night on the streets of Shanghai – or a far away fantasy location.
Both lounges were created to bring an exciting movement within time and fantasy.
The exquisitely designed space is the work of the famous JFS Studios, and encompasses everything our guests have come to expect in a nightlife destination.

The Shubert Theatre in Boston, Massachusetts, is located at 263-265 Tremont Street in the Boston Theater District.

James (Hill, James, & Whitaker) designed the building, which seats approximately 1,600 people. Originally conceived as The Lyric Theatre by developer Charles H. Bond, it was taken over by The Shubert Organization in 1908 after Bond's death.The building was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1980. In February 1996, the Wang Center signed a 40-year lease agreement with the Shubert Organization.

The Edward A. Hatch Memorial Shell (commonly referred to as the "Hatch Shell") is an outdoor concert venue on the Charles River Esplanade in the Back Bay section of Boston, Massachusetts.The Hatch Shell is best known for hosting the Boston Pops Orchestra annually for the Boston Fourth of July celebration, but is also used for free concerts most weekends and many weeknights during the summer months. The grass pavilion in front of the stage has no permanent seating. There is a memorial nearby to Arthur Fiedler, first permanent conductor of the Pops.HistoryThe original, wooden shell was built in 1928 as a temporary venue for the Pops with expectations of construction of a permanent structure in the near future. It was first used for a concert on July 4, 1929, with Arthur Fiedler conducting the Boston Pops Orchestra. A second, temporary shell, made of metal, was built in 1934, but owing to sparse funding throughout the Great Depression, construction of a permanent Hatch Shell was delayed until 1939-1940. Today's permanent shell was designed by architect Richard J. Shaw, given by Maria Hatch in memory of her brother, and dedicated on July 2, 1940. In preparation for its 50th anniversary in 1991, it underwent significant renovation and repair along with modernization of its acoustics by Boston architecture firm Finegold Alexander. Bostonian Howard Brickman, a master craftsman specializing in wood floors, re-created the intricate interior paneling of the shell by hand.

Fenway Park is a baseball park located in Boston, Massachusetts, at 4 Yawkey Way near Kenmore Square. Since 1912, it has been the location for the Boston Red Sox, the city's Major League Baseball (MLB) franchise. It is the oldest ballpark in Major League Baseball.Because of its age and constrained location in Boston's dense Fenway–Kenmore neighborhood, the park has been renovated or expanded many times, resulting in quirky heterogeneous features including "The Triangle" (below), "Pesky's Pole", and the Green Monster in left field. It is the fourth smallest among MLB ballparks by seating capacity, second smallest by total capacity, and one of eight that cannot accommodate at least 40,000 spectators.Fenway has hosted the World Series ten times, with the Red Sox winning five of them, and the Braves (then of Boston) winning one. The first, in the park's inaugural season, was the 1912 World Series and the most recent was the 2013 World Series. Besides baseball games it has been the site of many other sporting and cultural events including professional football games for the Boston Redskins, Boston Yanks, and the Boston Patriots; concerts; soccer and hockey games; and political and religious campaigns.

The Cyclorama Building is an 1884 building at 543-547 Tremont Street in the South End of Boston, Massachusetts that is operated by the Boston Center for the Arts.HistoryThe Classical Revival style Victorian building was commissioned by Charles F. Willoughby's Boston Cyclorama Company to house the Cyclorama of the Battle of Gettysburg, a 400-by-50 foot cyclorama painting of the Battle of Gettysburg. It was designed by Charles A. Cummings and Willard T. Sears. The central space is a 127'-diameter steel-trussed dome which, when it was built, was the largest dome in the country after the United States Capitol building. Visitors entered through the crenelated archway, proceeded along a dark winding passage, and then ascended a winding staircase to an elevated viewing platform. Skylights lit the scene by day, and it was illuminated by a system of 25 arc lamps by night.In 1889, a new cyclorama painting Custer's Last Fight, was installed, but by 1890, the fashion for cycloramas had ended, and the new owner of the building, John Gardner (father-in-law of Isabella Stewart Gardner), converted it to a venue for popular entertainment, including a carousel, roller skating, boxing tournaments (including an 1894 fight of John L. Sullivan), horseback riding, bicycling, and so on.

The Boston Park Plaza is a former Statler Hotel in Boston, Massachusetts, USA, opened on March 10, 1927, built by hotelier E.M. Statler. A prototype of the grand American hotel, it was called a "city within a city". It was the first hotel in the world to offer in-room radio in every room.Boston Park Plaza is a member of Historic Hotels of America, the official program of the National Trust for Historic Preservation.HistoryDuring the hotel's construction, it was discovered that the Statler's planned 155 foot height exceeded the maximum height of 125 feet allowed by the Massachusetts State Building Code. However the building was granted a special exemption by Mayor James Michael Curley, making it the tallest building in the city for a time, with the exception of the Boston Custom House. The building, filling an entire triangular city block, has two uses. The western half houses the hotel, while the eastern half has, since the building's construction, served as offices.The hotel opened on March 10, 1927 as the Hotel Statler Boston. The Statler chain was sold to Hilton Hotels in 1954 and the hotel was renamed the The Statler Hilton Boston. The hotel was again sold in 1976 to the Irving M. Saunders family and renamed the Boston Park Plaza Hotel & Towers.In the 1990s Trans World Airlines operated a ticket office in the hotel building. Delta Air Lines also had a ticket office in the building.
