rammy-nominated producer, DJ, songwriter, and TV personality Clinton Sparks has opened blue, an exclusive Miami-inspired waterfront bar and lounge in Marina Bay. Bringing a piece of South Beach to the Boston area, blue features flowing drapery, white leather sofas, alcohol-infused cupcakes, and 27 flavors of hookah. A Dorchester boy who moved to and grew up mostly in Randolph, Clinton shares some of his favorite local secrets.

1


Siro’s is my go-to restaurant for dinner in Marina Bay. I love the eggplant rolls, giant shrimp cocktail and baked fresh fish. And in the summer you can sit outside.
 

2


Lyft is my favorite way to get around the city. Always fast with pleasant drivers who offer everything from free water to gum, which is awesome after getting off a long flight.

Taso’s near the Norwood airport is an amazing Greek restaurant with wonderful fresh fish, hummus, and my favorite dessert, finikia [malamacorona cookies].

The best place to watch a movie is in the huge Lux-level seating at the Showcase Cinema at Legacy Place in Dedham. They deliver full meals, snacks and drinks in the comfort of your oversized leather reclining seats.

I also like Kings for bowling at Legacy Place. I guess I go to Legacy Place a lot. It has the best food and music while you bowl.

I always have the best night’s sleep when I stay at the Liberty Hotel. It’s convenient to the airport and everything in Boston, with great rooms and service, and there’s always something cool going on in the trendy lobby.
