Bella Luna announces move to Brewery Complex

I had a fabulous time last night at the Blogger Cafe event at Bella Luna in Jamaica Plain.

Carol Downs, the co-founder of the restaurant and general manager of Milky Way Lounge & Lanes nightclub gave me the grand tour of the Centre Street complex. During our chat, we talked about their scheduled move to The Brewery Complex on Amory Street and the struggles of having to install sprinklers within their current location in order to remain open as a restaurant with entertainment.

Here's a photo of Downs with's new CEO, Sean McDevitt.

hello! did they have any information about who's moving into the space? i live around the corner, and am so sad that Bella Luna/Milky Way got pushed out of Hyde Square; it's such a loss to the neighborhood.

While I didn't get specifics, I did hear that owners of the space say they will seek a similar business for the spot, believing that a mid-range restaurant/nightclub positive for the Hyde Square community and the local music scene.
