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 post.  You can watch the games, have a drink, meet speak socially 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.

To be clear, the night clubs millennials and urban professionals go to on a regular basis are Multi-Cultural. I would even say International. See list below.

“Black owned clubs” are the small bars in Dorchester, Roxbury and Mattpan neighborhood street corners. People who know each other go there. Its a local thing.

The Africans party with big crowd rented function halls, Caribbeans have their own cultural centers, Haitians have clubs, and African Americans do Wallys Jazz Pub ,Darrell Corner Bar and Kitchen and SLADES, his newest – both, for food and live music — and everyone is doing Rooftop hotel pool lounges, boat cruise rides, martini bars downtown and atmospheric clubs in Cambridge and Providence.

Millennials have  thing going where they will meet in prearrange places often when DJ centers the vibe. For HIP HOP – the Middle East Club in Cambridge will have it, as will a few other locations. There is more to be said about this and the parallel college student party scene where every school and university around here has a Black Student Association that plans events. more later..
