Retro Jazz Bar
Why locals love it
Part artsy restaurant, part throwback jazz bar. This retro gem is a great place to catch the some of the best big band jazz in town. If you're not in the mood for music in the lower level club, you can stay upstairs for some great eats with a killer cocktail list.
Why you should visit it
Though relatively well known now, the Beehive is an oft-forgotten gem in the South End. Its a great date spot, with a cool, dark vibe. Not a night person? Get your jazz brunch on from 10am to 3pm on Saturday and Sundays.
Best of all -- no cover charge for music!
Lines get terribly long on weekends. But they offer jazz every night! So head over on a Tuesday or Wednesday to catch some tunes without the crowds.
