About Boston’s South End
The South End is one of Boston’s most vibrant neighborhoods. Originally designed by Charles Bullfinch with many charming squares and parks, it was the home of affluent merchants and businessmen in the mid-to-late nineteenth century. It boasts the largest collection of Victorian brick row houses in the country –most have been restored or renovated, and many have graced the pages of interior design magazines.
The South End was the jazz capital of New England in the 1940s and 50s and eventually grew into a thriving artists’ enclave in the 1970s-1990s. In a nod to its past, galleries still launch new shows on the first Friday of every month and artists open their studios to the public twice each year. Gallery visitors might drop into the Beehive for live jazz and a bite to eat, or head to Wally’s Cafe for an intimate and authentic jazz club experience.
The SoWa Open Market draws visitors from outside the city every weekend during spring and summer, many of whom enjoy brunch at one of the neighborhood’s many top-rated restaurants. Since the late 1990s, the South End has been home to many of the city’s most acclaimed dining establishments and boutique shops. Diners might catch a play at the Calderwood Pavilion or one of the many venues in the nearby Theater District.
The South End has become one of Boston’s most desirable neighborhoods, rivaling Back Bay and Beacon Hill. Its proximity to other neighborhoods and rich cultural heritage offer the ultimate metropolitan lifestyle.
