    No better place to dance to the best DJs that come through Boston. Fri nights are EDM and awesome!

    The crowd usually sucks, especially if you go on a weekend. It's alright for concerts, but the slightly increased floor right in front of the stage is obnoxious

    Good music, shitty front staff. They coat check but wont let hats into the building even if you plan to check it with your coat. You're forced to leave it outside by the door & hope no one steals it.

    expect lines for any show. They search and it takes way too much time. Staff generally rude. Drinks outrageously priced. Decent venue to see bands but with all the negatives I'm always hesitant to go.

    Royale is know for bringing top chart DJs (and for epic lines and cover charges!) Book a VIP table with the Tablelist app and save time and $$ for the next show.

    Not really a fan of this place. I went on a particular Saturday night because there was supposed to be a "dance party." Felt more like a weird mix between a rave and a middle school dance.

    Trashiest place ever. The dance floor was covered with spilled drinks and smelled like vomit. I guess they expect this kind of clientelle because everyone gets a TSA patdown before coming in.

    The venue is crazy beautiful inside, huge potential size-wise. Just the right amount so it's still intimate. The usual over priced bar nonsense though means I will go elsewhere if at all possible.
