fun areas in boston?

Which are the fun areas to stay in boston? i'm coming for new years and although don't want to go anywhere too crazy (i'm in my mid-30s) would like to go to an area that has a bunch of nice options for bars/restaurants.

Back Bay, South End (not very many hotels there, but it's close to Back Bay), Harvard Square, around Faneuil Hall/Quincy Market. The South End may only have a few B&Bs, but it is a great restaurant destination. Around Fenway Park has become quite busy, cool restaurants, lots of young people, especially along that part of Boylston Street.

It's kind of ironic, but having "a bunch of nice options for bars/restaurants" would mean fewer options on NYE. Well, options assuming you are not looking for overcrowed and paying high cover charge.

Sorry, not really sure how to answer. Just pointing out that having a bunch of bar/restaurants in an area will not mean a bunch of options for what it sounds like you want on NYE. Even otherwise quiet laid back place become overcrowded on NYE if they are in that type of area.

The Park Square/Common area, for example - pretty much every bar/restaurant is jammed that night.
