Welcome to Michael J's, Waltham's best dive bar. Michael J's was built in the 1880's and rumor has its the first bar to receive a license after prohibition in the Boston area.
The bar was named after Michael J. Murphy, a Marine from Waltham and brother of the original owner, who died in Vietnam. Today, the bar offers an array of beer, wine, spirits & entertainment.
Walking into Michael J's, you immediately get the sense everyone knows each other. Pretty soon, they will know your name as well. This diamond in the rough gets a regular following for Tuesday's Dart Team Competitions, Friday's Karaoke Nights and Saturday's Acoustic Guitar & Band Entertainment.
Bartender, Bill, invites customers to to come try their luck any day of the week by playing, Keno, Powerball & Mega Bucks. The bonus to Michael J's is their state of the art Touch Tunes and the casual outdoor space for those warmer days & nights.
