Bella Luna Restaurant & The Milky Way Lounge is a dining and entertainment landmark founded in 1993. Our mission is to create community through delicious food, fabulous art and original entertainment; to be a gathering place where everyone feel comfortable and has fun; and to build a better Boston by supporting the work of local non-profit organizations.
Our 160-seat venue, located in The Brewery Complex on Amory Street with Boston Beer’s Sam Adams Brewery, combines a restaurant, patio and lounge with nightly entertainment. We are open seven days a week and offer dinner, take out and delivery to 02130, serving lunch on Saturdays only. We have 130-150 dining and bar seats, plus 30-50 seasonal outdoor patio seats. We have developed a thriving event business featuring on-premise parties with 10-150 guests, including wedding receptions, non-profit fundraisers and bar/bat mitzvahs. Our cuisine is creative Italian with daily specials and we offer vegan and gluten-free menu items. Our bar features New England craft beers as well as unique homemade cocktails. We continue to offer Boston’s most diverse array of entertainment including Mango’s Latin Dance Party every Saturday night (14 years running), our award-winning monthly Dyke Night Fourth Fridays (10 years running), weekly Monday night trivia, and weekly queer country line dancing with Dirty Water Saloon every Tuesday. In 2013 we have added to our line up a highly successful men’s monthly dance night called Boyfriends, a bi-monthly Open Jazz Jam, a monthly soul/R&B/live art/spoken word night called Futuristic Soul, two new monthly comedy nights, as well as interesting experimental concepts like Opera on Tap. Our business has been graced with many awards including seven Best of Boston awards from Boston Magazine, multiple Diner’s Choice Awards from OpenTables, multiple Best of Boston awards from The Improper Bostonian and The Weekly Dig. We believe in the democracy of food: that delicious, gourmet cuisine can be offered at affordable prices. We are a family-run business with a collaborative, friendly work culture, and we make the resources of our venue and food available for local non-profit organizations to bolster their fundraising and build their communities.
