Best of Boston

2013 Best Lesbian Club

The Midway Cafe

Here’s a low-key J.P. hangout, strewn all year long with Christmas lights, where the drinks are cheap and everyone is welcome—especially on Thursday evenings, when revelers dance on stage between songs during Queeraoke/Women’s Dance Night. Machine may be the place to hook up, but the Midway is the place to make friends.
