Bachelorette parties? Why???

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... read more

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

Love Tea Dance at The Bostslip; however, the owner is not always nice. She initiated a confrontation with a guy on the beach who was flying a drone over 'her' venue. The screaming and finger pointing was over the top, unnecessary and unprofessional. That being said, the folks who work there are professional, friendly and helpful. Best on a less... More

Tea Dance - If you just want a place to drink and hangout, this is it. Tea Dance is really just get together event. Sure, there's a pool and a small dance floor, but most of the deck is a place to talk amongst the crowd. Docks - probably shouldn't go down there. Resort - rooms were clean and well... More

The answer is a resounding YES!!! Have followed her ever since Pam and Linda Launched her at the Pied. Her mixing is dreadful and allows the dreaded poison to pervade the dance floor. TOO LONG BETWEEN SONGS..leaving people to stand on the dance floor and talk..she no longer controls the crowd

Teadance: THE place to start your evening and meet friends old and new. Yes, there is a cover sometimes and there might be cheaper drinks, but the view, music, and people-watching can't be beat!

We were staying nearby and on two warm days, came here in the afternoon before the tea dance started. There was no cover charge at that time in the day, and I was drinking cans of beer for around $4-5. There was a $5 charge for deckchairs, which is fine. The pool is medium/small in size, but even on warm... More

Although I have not stayed at the Boatslip, I do go there for the entertainment. The T-Dances are the highlight of the early evening in Provincetown (4-7 PM) as far as I'm concerned. Multiple bars, great bartenders, and danceable music. There are special events (after 7PM) during the week. It depends upon the theme of the week.

It is what it is... Thin walls, rooms that haven't changed in years except for flat screen tvs and wifi, nothing special or fancy! But the location can't be beaten. Tea Dance is... Still a main attraction. If you just want a place to sleep (was here for a flag football tournament) and be in the heart of ptown then... More
