Black night clubs & restaurants
In Lower Roxbury's South End section near Ruggle's Station, are the biggest Black-owned nightclubs and restaurants in Boston. You can walk to them from Massachusetts Avenue or get there by bus and subway. Some parking exists but not a lot of it. These three are the oldest. Accelerate Boston and a hospitality investment group joined forces to launch a 4th in the area. Here is a list from the oldest to the new.
Wally's Jazz Cafe
Wally's has the best Guiness Beer bar scene with jazz anywhere in the world. The mixed drink you want is there, but there is no food, not a place for fashion ladies, and not a destination for arriving with a large crowd. When you go, go alone or with just a person, no more than one. Wally's is located on Mass Ave corner of Columbus Ave beside the New York Pizza joint. Wally's, the training ground for Berklee College of Music jazz students, stays open as late as allowed. But there are few tables at Wally's. Go mid-afternoon and it won't be crowded. website
