With their elegant kitchens and dining spaces, private balconies, roof deck, and unique game lounge, the new condos at Stratus Residences in Boston are perfect for hosting all manner of events for friends and family. Here’s a handful of ideas for entertaining over the spring and summer months.
Decadent Dinner Parties
The open-aspect kitchens in these condos were made for throwing cocktail and dinner parties with panache. Cook up a storm with help from your Bosch stove and refrigerator — serving salads, canapés, and chilled wine on the sleek entertainment island. For formal occasions, light the candles and dish up at the dining room table, where guests can relish their meal with a side of tasty views across Brighton, Mass. By the way, if you’re wondering about food shopping, Whole Foods is just a three-minute drive from Stratus. Otherwise, the condo offers in-house grocery delivery.
As soon as the weather improves, Bostonians will want to get outside and make the most of the sun. For Stratus residents, that couldn’t be easier. Invite guests for coffee catch-ups on your private balcony — and to enjoy the fresh air and sunshine from the comfort of your condo. For bigger get-togethers, head up to the roof deck. Here, you and your pals can while away balmy afternoons at the “grill and chill” station, barbecuing burgers, fish, and veggie kebabs, washed down with icy beers. And if the rays get too hot for comfort? Slip into your swimming costume and take the plunge in the building’s rooftop pool.
Meals and Marshmallows by Moonlight
For a touch of rooftop sophistication, fix up a feast in the communal kitchen. Then, enjoy it with friends at the sky lounge and bar while watching the sun dip over the Boston horizon. Even when the sun’s gone altogether, it’s not necessarily time to call it a day. The rooftop at Stratus has its own patio area with firepits; gather around the warmth while sharing stories, and maybe even roast a few marshmallows in the flames.
A Summer of Sport
Whether your game is basketball, baseball, football, or soccer, it’s going to be an action-packed summer. Invite sport-loving friends to the Stratus game lounge, where you can grab a refreshment from the cafe and watch live sports on the TV, while getting into your own games of pool and foosball. Nestled away under the neoclassical arches of a former church, there’s no other game lounge like it.
