1. Better Bagels

83 Seaport Blvd.

Co-owners Sam Harden and James Grimes always wanted a bagel shop in Boston, and after years of doing pop-ups and distributing to various wholesalers across town, they finally opened a brick-and-mortar spot. Among the multitude of doughy offerings and a bevy of accoutrements, bagel buffs will discover the company’s hard-to-find flavors such as egg and pumpernickel—as well a lot of local flavor that’s much-needed in the up-and-coming neighborhood. betterbagelsboston.com

2. YOTEL Boston

65 Seaport Blvd.

This micro-hotel opened this summer with rooms—also known as cabins—as small as 152 square feet. But there’s a large amount of options when it comes to Bostonians enjoying the futuristic building, which is the chain’s second U.S. location. Local DJs take over the rooftop lounge on Wednesdays and Sundays, Louie Bello croons in the lobby lounge on Thursday evenings, while the Boston Buddha (Andrew Kelley) offers meditation classes on Mondays. yotel.com

3. The Grand 

58 Seaport Blvd.

The latest nightclub from the Big Night Entertainment Group, which also opened the adjacent Scorpion Bar, puts as much of an emphasis on visual effects as the audio elements. The 12,000-square-foot space contains a 70-foot LED wall and a kinetic light system as well as a Funktion-One sound system for guest DJs to blast the beats. thegrandboston.com

4. Equinox

27 Northern Ave.

The fitness facility’s fifth Boston location might wow you with its water views, but the other amenities aren’t too shabby either. A spa, Juice Press shop and apparel store are all part of the Equinox lure. And don’t miss a class that uses a weighted jump rope and is only held at select sites—including this oneequinox.com

5. Seaport Barbers

51 Northern Ave.

This new biz from Tweed Barbers’ Andrew Alicea is open seven days a week, offering clients a complimentary shampoo and a free beverage upon arrival—all the better to let your hair down. Only products from Blind Barber make the cut as master barbers offer haircuts, beard trims, facials and hair coloring. seaportbarbers.com
