Wally’s Cafe

2012 Best Jazz Club, Casual

The South End has risen and fallen as Boston’s jazz center, but 65 years after Joseph Walcott originally opened Wally’s, the place still grooves. Every evening of the year, the tiny club crams in a diverse crowd of music lovers sipping whiskey Cokes and PBRs and craning their neck to see the bands. The music style changes nightly—Latin, Afro-Cuban, swing, straight-ahead, bebop, funk—but it’s always jazz, and it’s always great.
