The Chantey: music, dancing and fun on Marina Bay

Along the water in Quincy there is more nightlife than you would think. Marina Bay has great nightlife, especially in the summer. Nestled into the upscale restaurants and boutiques is a great little spot for music, dancing and fun. The Chantey is unassuming and modest. It's a great spot for running into local celebrities that want to have some fun. It’s mostly an older crowd during the off season, but it’s still a great place for the younger crowd to sing some karaoke or play trivia.

It's a small venue but only gets really crowded in the summer. The bathrooms are tidy but there are only two private bathrooms so there is usually a small line. Parking can be a hassle in the summer, but in the winter there is plenty of parking right outside the bar. During the warmer months, it can get a little too crowded and overwhelming, but from September to May it’s a great local spot to have a drink, some food and relax.

The food is typical bar fare and is pretty good, although nothing stands out as extraordinary. Karaoke night is always fun and draws a decent crowd. The dance floor is small and can get crowded late night even if the off season. With its glass walls and nautical theme, it has a nice waterfront feel. The bartenders are always attentive and fun. It’s a great place to have a fun, laid back night with friends. It doesn’t get too loud so it’s easy to have conversation as well as entertainment.
