About South End
Where starchy old Boston ends, the South End begins. South of upright Back Bay brownstones are undulating rows of red-brick Victorians, with generous Bay windows and sociable stoops. New England neighborhoods can seem standoffish, but the South End embraces its historic multi-racial and openly gay communities. New arrivals have lodged in South End rooming houses and mingled at local cafés and clubs since the 1880s. Gays, lesbians and Latinos moved into tenements vacated by middle-class Irish, Jewish and African-American families after World War II, and today the South End hosts block parties for Boston Pride (mid-June) and Hispanic Heritage Month (October). South End nights are full of surprises: Mother's Ruin (gin and pickle juice) at Gallows, real Venezuelan arepas (cornbread pockets) at Orinoco, scorching jazz at historic Wally's Café and chill DJ sets at GLBT-central Club Café.

American revolutions and witch hunts happened here first, as historical sites ringing Boston Commons are sure to remind you. But down at the "bah" (Boston-speak for bar) the current talk is what's on at the Boston symphony or Isabella Stewart Gardener museum, what scientific breakthrough happened today at MIT, which band playing TD Garden got its start playing for change in Harvard Square, and when the Red Sox will ever win another World Series (sore subject).
