South Street Diner (formerly the Blue Diner) was built in 1947 by the Worcester Dining Company to serve local factory workers. Over the years, the Diner has become a local landmark, a constant in Boston's after-hours scene and a final evening destination for local residents, students and visitors. When the clubs close, the Diner is the place to grab something to eat, hang out with friends, celebrity watch, and keep the party going. No visit to Boston is complete without a stop to the South Street Diner. Today, South Street Diner is Boston's only all-night dining destination seven-nights-a-week. While the neighborhood around South Street Diner has evolved from factories producing shoes and hand bags, to an artist community, student mecca, and part of the city-wide Big Dig construction site, one thing has remained unchanged --- South Street Diner is Boston's true diner, and the heart of Boston's late night scene.
