crazy fun and exhilerating happy hour

Felt like I was back at Aquarius in Quincy - poolside happy hour and pumpin tunes with dancing. No credit/debit card was the only inconvenience.

T-Dance at the Boatslip is always a must do when in P-town. Gay, Straight or anything in between, the vibe is always amazing. The bartenders are always a treat. Good location in town and great ocean views onto the Bay. We call this our release and let loose location!!!

Our trip would never be complete without the tea dances at the Boatslip. We went all 3 nights during our stay in PTown. Oh the memories I recall over the years here. DJ Mary Alice is a fixture at this place and it would never be the same without her. I would recommend the Sunday night 70-80s dance. The crowd... More

Stayed for one night in early May over the weekend. Service was very friendly. Room was at the end and was quiet and clean. Bathroom was a little rough around the edges (could use upgrade), but water pressure was fine. Bed was comfortable. Had a balcony overlooking the deck and bay - lots of light. Keep in mind that the... More

Like many others have expressed, the abundance of bachelorette parties is extremely annoying. They can go anywhere, yet drive to the furthest end of the cape to be around people who don't want them there. Maybe someday they will realize this and stop going. They don't understand P-town at all. Anyway, if you can find a T-Dance that is not... More

Perfect location for daytime pool and sunning, the moving onto the T dance patio extravaganza every early evening! Great staff, and lots of friendly patrons! Nice pool area for the afternoon as well!

I've been attending the Boatslip's Tea Dance regularly for sixteen years, and there are plenty of good reasons to do so: the late-afternoon light in summer creates a magical ambience, the crowd of people invariably includes both sweet personalities and stunning physiques (sometimes combined in the same individual), the music is always fun and contemporary, and the long-term staff (especially...

Provincetown is one of the last gay havens left in the country and the Boatslip is an institution. What a great place to meet friends old and new while watching the sunlight reflect off the bay. I've been coming here for 25 years and the tea dance is a tradition. Strong drinks and friendly bartenders. But why why why are... More
