So, Jazz is born in America and can be seen as a reflection of the cultural diversity and individualism of the United States. Throughout its history, jazz has straddled the worlds of popular music and art music.
In the 20th century, New Orleans and Louisiana were a melting pot of cultures. People from all over the world came together there: European classical music, American blues, and South American songs and rhythms merged to form what became known as Jazz.
Boston is not New Orleans or Louisiana, but it has played a key role in the history of Jazz. One of the most important Jazz hot spots of Boston was the Columbus Avenue where clubs and taverns featured live music.
Dining and Jazz - The Beehive in Boston
The Beehive for instance, is a wildly popular Bohemian eatery and bar located in Boston’s South End. Amongst the backdrop of an eclectic, funky, elegant art space, you can enjoy delicious food, tasty cocktails, and world-class live music every day of the week.
Last weekend, my roommates and I went to this astonishing location. Besides classical Jazz we enjoyed a delicious dinner. But if there is something that especially characterizes the Beehive, it is the objective to immerse guests in a magical atmosphere where you can forget your daily stress (or mid-terms) and takes you back into the past with its decor, costumes and the music.
You can find the upcoming events and menu on Beehive’s homepage:
To everybody who wants to engage in Dining and Jazz, I would recommend reserving a table during the weekend and feeling the swing.
As Louis Armstrong said: “Man, if you gotta ask you’ll never know.”
