South End

South End Travel Guide

After one taste of this little market’s enormous bocadillos (traditional Spanish sandwiches), patrons are likely to be grabbing ingredients off the store’s shelves in order to recreate the dish at home.

Offering a taste of Latin America, this Harrison Avenue boutique features a unique collection of design imports. Hand-selected by owner Frank Campanale, all pieces originate in such South American countries as Brazil, Argentina, Peru, and Chile.

Blueberry basil, lemongrass, blue cheese, elderflower grapefruit: with drink flavors like these, it’s easy to grasp what 28 Degrees is all about – innovative, refreshing cocktails. Of course, this South End lounge’s offerings don’t stop at the bar.

This boutique has monochromatic clothes by up-and-coming designers like Thread Social and Nili Lotan.

The sweet and savory creations of Pastry Chef/Owner Joanne Chang and her talented staff have made Flour Bakery + Café a Boston institution.

Established in 1947, Wally Walcott's live-jazz bar hosts up-and-coming performers (many of them students at the nearby Berklee College of Music and New England Conservatory) 365 nights a year.

Named after the Dutch word for "alluring," Lekker is a home furnishings store owned by entrepreneur Natalie van Dijk Carpenter, who worked in the house wares industry in Amsterdam, Paris, and New York before establishing this shop in Boston's South End.

Along an alley in South End sits Bobby From Boston, a vintage store owned by Bobby Garnett, who hand-selects men's and women's clothing from as early as the 1920s to fill the two-room warehouse.
