Louis of Boston

Member Rating 3 out of 5 by violino on June 24, 2002

Shopping at Louis of Boston is an experience. First of all, the store is housed in an elegant brick townhouse situated between Boylston and Newbury streets, in the middle of some of the hottest shopping (and priciest real estate) in all of Boston. Second, they have a driveway where they will valet park your car. If you've ever tried to park around the area, you know this alone makes it worth a trip. Third, if the salespeople inside deem you worthy of their glance, prepare to be waited on hand and foot in your search for the finest designer threads. But be warned, those glances can be icy.

Louis of Boston carries some of the most exclusive lines for men and women, ranging from conservative suits to flashy up to (or down to) there dresses. Expect to see the likes of Loro Piana, Luciano Barbera and Helmut Lang hanging on the racks. Wind your way up the staircase past the DJ spinning cool Euro beats and gaze upon the tasteful selections for men on the second floor. Another floor up brings you to the women's section, which is not quite as impressive but worth cruising nonetheless.

Once you've exhausted your feet as well as your charge cards, step into their cafe for a cool drink and a light bite to eat. Like the rest of the store, the decor is ultra stark and modern. But luckily, like in the rest of the store, good taste abounds. If you're looking for the best Caesar salad in Boston, you've come to the right place.
