The May Hit List: Fox & the Knife, Next Door, Hecate, and More


As temperatures slowly rise, Boston must be working up a thirst.

How else to explain the arrival of a duo of fresh cocktail bars — in the form of Back Bay’s witchy Hecate and a brand-new bar and live music venue in Brookline dubbed the Village Social Club?

All this and more May goodness in the Hit List below.
