Best of Boston

2011 BEST Jazz Club

Wally’s Café

With a hole-in-the-wall atmosphere, raw jazz, and bartenders who bust ass, Wally’s is an institution unto itself. A conglomerate of Berklee students, longtime barflies, and twentysomethings keep the narrow bar crowded, while early birds get a shot at one of eight tables. It’s a tight fit, to be sure, but the vibe is lighthearted and appreciative.
