Midway Cafe

The Midway Cafe is located at 3496 Washington Street in Jamaica Plain, MA. We are open 7 days a week and have live entertainment nightly.

Slimedog’s favorite local bar, very open to booking punk or metal shows. They have Saturday afternoon punk shows frequently. Call Dave.


“Every city should have a bar as funky as the Midway Cafe. A haven for local bands that can really play. On any given night, the Midway can be too cool for words.”
-Steve Morse, Boston Globe Calendar Magazine, 1997


“Long a bastion of local roots, surf and rockabilly, JP’s Midway Cafe has also been quietly hosting some pretty studendous out-of-towners.”
-Boston Phoenix


“Every Tuesday night, Tom Lawlor’s open-mic improv jam takes over the joint, and the place livens up with musicians of all shapes and sizes. The place sizzles with atmosphere and good tunes.”
Stuff Magazine, Behind The Scenes


“A cozy neighborhood bar featuring live blues, alternating with rockabilly and rock six nights a week”
Rolling Stone, May 1998


Come on in! The Midway has presented the best acts, and the best VARIETY of acts, in Boston since 1987. Often compared to New York’s Knitting Factory for its eclectic mix of styles and crowds, the Midway books everything from Western Swing to Metal to Blues to Punk to Country to Jazz to Reggae to Surf to Hip-Hop to World Beat to Spoken Word to Rockabilly to Lounge to Soul / R&B to Comedy and much more, plus special events, benefits, movie screenings, and our famous Dyke Nyte every Thursday. We’ll also host your private party.
