Street Heat & Pond Cool in Jamaica Plain


The orange line “T” will deliver you to the Latin end of Jamaica Plain’s Centre Street at Jackson Square, where life is more Santo Domingo than downtown Boston. Head west from the station and get in the rhythm by perusing more than 10,000 titles of Caribbean and Latin music at Franklin CD (

314 Centre St
). Dominican-born owner Franklin Cabral, himself a musician, is pictured on the walls with many of Boston’s Latin American Red Sox players. A promenade along Centre Street is a lesson in Latin fashion and food. Pass El Miami and other Cubano sandwich joints, before the street doglegs left. Next stop: Rhythm & Muse (
470 Centre St
) for a brush with Jamaica Plain’s hippest muses. Look over the racks for local writers, ranging from the Nobel prize winners to the self-publishing poets. At J P Licks (
659 Centre St
), order a cone of super-premium ice cream and head up Burroughs Street to Jamaica Pond . Take a stroll, rest in the shade of a big maple tree, or rent a rowboat.

Having worked up a hunger, return to Centre Street for a dinner of enchiladas in spicy molé sauce at Tacos el Charro. Afterwards, walk farther down Centre Street to Milky Way Lounge & Lanes and join the cool cats for a bottle of chilled beer, live music, and a game of bowling.

Bars & Clubs

  1. Doyle’s Café

    The apex of Irish-American political culture, Doyle’s has been serving beer since 1882, and corned beef and cabbage on Thursdays for as long as anyone can remember. Busy nightly.

    • 3484 Washington St, Jamaica Plain

    Doyle’s Café
  2. Milky Way Lounge & Lanes

    Latinos and Jamaica Plain hipsters rub shoulders at the Milky Way for the dancing, the latest local live bands, the cosmopolitans, and bowling under the dim blue Christmas lights.

    • 403 Centre St, Jamaica Plain

  3. Playwright Bar

    A spiffy Dublin-style pub with good food, excellent pints, and large windows that let in the sunlight and the breeze.

    • 658 East Broadway, South Boston

  4. Alchemist Restaurant & Lounge

    Part of the hip Jamaica Plain scene, Alchemist tapped the neighboring Samuel Adams Brewery for an exclusive beer. The bartenders, rumor has it, can work miracles.

    • 435 S Huntington Ave, Jamaica Plain

  5. Boston Beer Garden

    On weekends this watering hole is packed both inside and outside in the garden – it’s a typical beer-drinking, South Boston singles scene. Modern pub food hits a fairly high mark.

    • 734 East Broadway, South Boston

  6. Amrhein’s

    The vintage bar at Amrhein’s – a South Boston fixture since 1890 – is reason enough to visit the ‘hood. Locals debate the issue of the day over a drink or two.

    • 80 West Broadway, South Boston

  7. Lucky’s Lounge

    A Fort Point Channel underground bar that swaggers with rat pack retro ambience, right down to the lounge acts and the Frank Sinatra tribute nights.

    • 355 Congress St, South Boston

  8. Brendan Behan Pub

    This classic “new” Irish pub, frequented by cheerful neighborhood types with vaguely poetic pretensions, is properly outfitted with Guinness and Murphy’s on tap and live music most nights.

    • 378 Centre St, Jamaica Plain

  9. Slades Bar & Grill

    Generous drinks, good jazz, and sometimes even free eats ensure Slades hops on the weekends. Don’t let the seedy exterior put you off – this is one of Roxbury’s liveliest social scenes.

    • 958 Tremont St, Roxbury

    • Closed Mon

  10. Jeannie Johnston

    This entertainment venue has plenty to offer, with an open mike on Thursdays, live local bands on Fridays, and karaoke on Saturdays, as well as a snug spot to sit with one of its 27 draught or bottled beers.

    • 144 South St, Jamaica Plain:
