New Orleans-style parade planned for Milky Way

After 15 years as an award-winning restaurant, entertainment complex and neighborhood institution in the Jamaica Plain-area of Boston, , Bella Luna Restaurant and The Milky Way Lounge will officially bid adieu to its current location of 403-405 Centre Street in Jamaica Plain on Saturday, March 21.

The Milky Way's last show 1 p.m. on Sunday, March 22 will mark the official "transfer of love" to their new location. Fans of the venue are invited to join in the process which will include a New Orleans-style parade from the old location to the new.

In the spirit of a New Orleans jazz procession, the business will move seven blocks away to The Brewery Complex, at 284 Amory Street in Jamaica Plain and plans to re-open in early to mid April.

The new locale will include skee ball, dancing, live music, free parking, a 50-seat outdoor patio and of course their signature food and cocktails. Unfortunately, the Milky Way's vintage candlepin lanes will not be able to make the move.

When asked about the relocation, co-owner Kathie Mainzer emotes, "A move like this is a challenge for us and for the neighborhood who have enjoyed our dining room, patio and lounge for over 15 years. But, we are extremely excited for our new home, and we look forward to welcoming people to the Brewery complex."

Even though I hate the loss of the nightclub (Milky Way) the new location sounds like it has some great stuff to offer. It's got skeeball (!), a nice patio and it's a lot closer to where I live. I am planning to join their moving parade, too.
