I've been to this club several times in the past. They play great music! The drinks aren't bad at all. Not sure of the price range since there's always a nice fella willing to pay. LOL. I've never encountered any fights. I think the cover charge is a bit pricey. It would be nice if it was complimentary for ladies before 11PM. Well I plan on going again this upcoming Saturday for a friend's birthday. Hopefully, it is free before 11PM and the photographer doesn't have another camera focus failure. Love to have our pictures taken!

I dont know what jjackson is talking about. I've been there a few times on saturdays with my classmates and I've seen other fellow alumni and other grad students there too. And I've never seen a fight there. You sure you walked into the right place? The music is the best there, probably the best top 100 music ive heard around town. The doorman can be a little agitative but which club doesnt have doorman like that. Once inside though, its a nice wide open space with plenty of room and not elbow to elbow like a lot of other places in boston.

I think Pure is the kind of place that everyone has to go at least once. You may love it and want to go back. Or you may find it not quite your style but still a fun night. I thought the music was awesome and the lights were fun. I didn't really appreciate the live go-go dancers and videos of silhouettes of unclothes women dancing - degrading!!! Then again, it's a club so a certain amount of degradation is implied (unfortunately for us ladies). Though I did find the sexism to be more apparent here.
I went on Saturday night and yes, crowd was predominately Asian. But, so what? If you're white - get over it! This country isn't all white and sometimes you'll go places where you're in the minority. Expand your horizons a little. It's still a fun place and the crowd had some killer dance moves that people at Gypsy could not compete with! The only part that disappointed me about the crowd was they waited to long to start dancing. The dance floor didn't get moving until almost midnight.
On a final note though - place is overpriced. 20 dollar cover? Should be 10. 10 dollar mixed drinks? Should be 7.

Saturday night at PURE is predominantly frequented by Asian kids and not of the college type. I think its because of a promotion group called ""isis"" that run the night and collects money at the door. They attract and cater to this particular type of a crowd. This night is just downright ugly and dangerous. If bloody brawls with local chinatown thugs and barely legal girls are your cup of tea then by all means go to Pure. The music is OK and the DJ plays hip hop just like all the other clubs in town.

I went on a Saturday night and it was a good experience. The owner [Jeff] bought me a drink so that was a plus. Starts of really slow, so get there late [11ish or later]. The drinks tasted really good, but I can't comment on the price because people bought me drinks the whole night. Heavy asian crowd. The place itself was trendy, clean bathrooms. The crowd -- not so trendy or hip. Great music though and great for dancing, so can't complain. Good size dance floor and good service.
