Wally's Cafe

This venerable club, founded in 1947, was the first African-American-owned nightclub in New England. Wally's Cafe is a proving ground for young jazz musicians, and audience members (or famous visitors) often step up and jam. Much of the narrow space is filled with the bar, and it is standing-room-only on weekend nights. The crowd is a mix of musicians, locals and bohemians of all ages. Live music is played every night and there is a jazz brunch on Sunday afternoons.

Tom English's Cottage

Tom English's Cottage may not be the typical old-world Irish tavern one may expect, but is a blend of Irish hospitality, food and a modern Boston ambiance. The drinks offered here are delicious, and is sure to please your palate and pocket. You can even carry your own food along, but the fish and chips is a definite must-try. Dart boards, pool tables and Buck Hunter are available to while away your time here. Tom says no to credit cards, so carry ample cash while visiting this watering hole.

Bukowski's Tavern

If you have difficulty making choices, this place is your nightmare as there are over 100 different beers to choose from behind the bar. Bukowski's is a thoroughly pleasant place to enjoy a pint and some simple pub-style food. The menu features the popular Bukowski burger as well as entrees ranging from wraps and tuna melts to buffalo wings and veggie specials. Visit this place if you are a beer lover.http://


Chatty bartenders and friendly locals combine to make Anchovies one of the most popular restaurants at South End. Anchovies was even voted as Best of Boston in 2010 by Boston Magazine. Its popularity may make you wait for a booth, but huge plates of pasta and perfect pizzas are worth it. The restaurant has a full service bar too, serving draft and bottled beers as well as sparkling, red and white wines. Open till 2a, Anchovies is an ideal place to satisfy your late-night cravings.

The Lower Depths Tap Room

Lower Depths Tap Room is a no-fuss-allowed beer bar with a huge range of draft and bottle selections as well as a large menu of bar bites. The bar here boasts seventeen rotating draft selections and over 150 bottled beers ranging from common to obscure to downright rare. Budweiser seems to be the only beer not available here (something of which the owners are very proud). The food more than steps up to the standards of the beer. For the best deal pick up one or two of the Fenway franks, available in both beef and vegetarian for only a dollar, or try the foot-long for only a dollar more. Be advised, Lower Depths is cash only.

prime 131 Grill

Nestled on Boston Post Road, prime 131Grill offers a tantalizing fare of steaks prepared in the contemporary flair. The steaks are made from black Angus beef that has been aged to produce rich flavors. Begin your meal with a Shrimp Martini, Apple Cured Baby Back Ribs, Prime 131 Crabcakes or a salad. Follow it up with an appetizing entree of North Atlantic Haddock cooked with lemon that gives it a tangy taste or New York Sirloin Strip. For some of the best preparations, choose from the house specials. End your meal on a sweet note with a cheesecake, pudding or an ice cream.
