What Pubs Should Be In a Parkway Political Pub Crawl?

Boston's pubs have long been a part of the political scene through hosting ward meetings, celebration parties - all while offering some suds and soda.


Boston's pubs and politics have been meshed together for decades. Our Parkway pubs host ward meetings, events and celebration parties. 

In the Parkway area of Jamaica Plain, Roslindale, and West Roxbury, the three neighborhoods are individually unique but share a more intertwined history due to Boston City Council's District 6 encompassing J.P., West Roxbury and a bit of Roslindale, too.

So what pubs should be a part of a hypothetical Parkway Political Pub Crawl?

District 6 City Councilor Matt O'Malley got the ball rolling by recommending Doyle's Pub in J.P. to President Obama.   

O'Malley said he chose Doyle's - "...because it’s a great, old political pub." O'Malley suggested the following for a hypothetical pub crawl: having Doyle's, and the Galway, in Jamaica Plain; Kelleher's in Roslindale; and West on Centre and The Corrib in West Roxbury.

What other pubs do you think should be in a Parkway Political Pub Crawl? And what would you want to see on a Parkway Political Pub Crawl? Please be respectful.

I would rather see politics kept out of the Pubs unless Scott Brown happens to walk in for a pint!
