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.

Asked why he recommended Doyle's Pub in Jamaica Plain, O'Malley said, "Doyle’s - because it’s a great, old political pub." O'Malley told Patch he'd include West on Centre and The Corrib in an unplanned Parkway Political Pub Crawl. So what restaurant/pub in West Roxbury would you recommend to President Barack Obama?
