Wally’s Jazz Cafe,  Slade’s Bar and Grill  and  Darryl’s Corner Bar and Kitchen  are modern BLACK-OWNED night club and restaurants and jazz listening posts.  You can watch the games, have a drink, eat well, socialize and dance. The bigger the club the more you can do. These three are within a walking distance of each other.

For Darryl’s, advance reservations are highly recommended on Thursday – Weekends. Pop into Slades or Wally’s on the fly.

The nightclubs millennials and urban professionals go to on a regular basis are multicultural. I would even say International. See a long list of them below.

Africans, Caribbeans and Haitians have favorite go-to spots for gatherings. Function halls, country clubs, cultural centers and church properties have receptions for weddings, parties, funerals, fashion shows, and other reasons. With all the water surrounding Boston, a party boat cruise can be booked yearround, with food and drink on board when weather permits.

Millennial meetups favor DJ listening parties and popular indie music artists who are as likely to be booked a the Museum of Fine Arts, the ICA or the Isabella Stewart Gardner on the Fenway. Hip Hop heads do the Middle East Club in Cambridge often. The touring bands will hit Paradise Rock Club and House of Blues when not playing arenas.

Black college students party in spaces on campus and around town as well, but its cheaper on campus to book a space more than likely. There are a lot of entrepreneurial promoters book party events. Themes include Black Comedy, Live Bands and Poetry Jams to bring the people out. Keep an eye on House of Blues main and the Foundation Room club space over there on Landsdowne.
