People hate on Circle too hard. Circle is for dancing. They play good music here and the lights and smoke only complement the music. Go with your friends, its fun to dance hard on the weekends. I used to hate house music and every club that played house. I only liked hiphop and clubs that played hiphop but after going to circle I actually like listening and dancing to house. The environment there is very good for dancing, so if your going to circle to dance and enjoy the music your going to have fun. Its way too loud to talk so you might as well.

Amalia had always been one of my favorite Friday night partying spot, until its recent "private guest list" policy that the management imposed. More frustratingly, this sudden new policy came off in a very discriminatory manner. DJs there were amazing. They play all kinds of pop and hip hop music, from Gaga to Ke$ha to BEP, all the guys and gals, sisters and sista, got to dance their heart out. Drinks are fairly priced and there is no cover. People were friendly and everyone had great time there. Then on one Friday, there was a special Madonna new album release special night. Nowhere on the posters indicates that's a private party going. Like usual, it says "NO COVER, FULL OPEN BAR TILL 11" We arrived around 10ish, the bouncer told us that there's a private party going on, and we need to be on the guest list. As we were about to leave, there were other group of people came in and as they entered, the bouncer just asked them for the ID. NO PRIVATE PARTY WAS MENTIONED, NO NAME CHECKED OR ANYTHING. Then a third group stopped by, they were stopped at the door. We stood there for a god 10 minutes and trying to figured out what kind of a private party was going on that they did not specify on the poster. But we couldn't help but noticed, Most of the people were blocked were either Asians and Latinos! As we tried not to get too sensitive, we decided to split and some bar hopped around HK, and some decided to go back to Amalia again after a couple of hours. Then we found that those who returned, got into the club as they went in individually. So we gave the party management the benefit of doubt and went back to Amalia after 3 hours. We waited on line. When the bouncer saw us, he decided to screamed out "guys, if your name is not on the guest list, don't bother coming in!" I really wonder if anybody else have encountered the same issue. This incident really changed my perception of Rockit, the party management. It is supposed to be a gay party, that shows tolerance and acceptance of individual who want to be who they are. But by imposing such a stupid and racist "guest list" policy, it was just plainly disgusting.

Thank god this place is here. Appealing drink selection, tasty and creative food selections, enough space to meet up with a large group. Most random visit here was when the Drinking Liberally political group was showing a movie on the wall. Wait, wait, I can just feel your little fingers twitching and wanting to write something about how it's pretentious or overpriced. Look at it this way; if what you're looking for is an down-to-earth bar where you can wear jeans and drink a great pint, is there really any shortage of those in Boston? Oh, I see, it's too crowded on the weekends. So....don't go then. It's usually not crowded during the week.
