need live music tonight near Omni Parker Hotel

Came to Boston from Toronto to see the Bruins game. Had a great dinner at Fours after the matinee game, now looking for some live music nearby and a good brunch for tomorrow morning. (Went to the Paramount near Beacon Hill this morning)

Appreciate your help. You've helped me before.

  1. If you're up for a short cab ride, you could head to the Beehive in the South End for some live music and drinks.

        Boston's South End has lots of good choices.

        These places are all on Tremont St.:

        Masa, with a southwestern flavor
        Metropolis, a casual, comfy place for brunch
        Tremont 647, pajama-clad servers, fun food
        Acquitaine, French, bargain special
        Pops, fun and tasty

        On Washington St.
        Union Bar and Grill, reasonably-priced specials, good food

        On Shawmut Ave.:
        South End Buttery, an interesting space downstairs and good food, not super cheap

        On Columbus Ave.:
        Columbus Cafe, laid back and pleasant

        On Harrison Blvd.:
        Gaslight, a casual bistro with a decent menu

        On Berkeley St in the Back Bay.:
        Geoffrey's Cafe and Bar. I haven't been yet, but many hounds enjoy it.

        On Salem St. in the North End:
        Caffe Nuovo, with some Italian offerings like good carbonara,polenta and broccoli rabe sausage, and an excellent Prime steak and eggs

        Oh, and the Beehive also does a pretty good brunch.

        Hope you have fun wherever you end up. Enjoy Boston!

        Oh, and I should have mentioned Wally's Cafe on Mass. Ave. for live jazz. tonight.

      3. Best high end (but not unduly fancy or unduly expensive) brunch in town is at Mistral, a short cab ride from your hotel.

        1. Bit of a longer cab ride or right on the red Line in Davis Square Somerville is Johhny D's for great live music
