The Haven in Jamaica Plain Is Looking to Move to the Former Bella Luna/Milky Way Space

It looks like Boston's only Scottish restaurant could be moving to an historic space nearby.

According to an article from Universal Hub, The Haven in the Hyde Square section of Jamaica Plain is planning to move to the former Bella Luna/Milky Way space in the old Haffenreffer Brewery complex on Amory Street, with the dining spot having both indoor and outdoor seating while also seeking to offer live entertainment. Owner Jason Waddleton is going to be talking about the proposal at a Jamaica Plain Neighborhood Council public-service committee this evening, so more should be known about the plans then.

Bella Luna and The Milky Way officially closed for good last June after being in the brewery space since 2009; previously, both had been located around the corner from where The Haven currently resides, with The Milky Way including bowling within that space.

The current address for The Haven is 2 Perkins Street, while its new address would be 284 Amory Street. Its website can be found at https://thehavenjp.com/

[April 9 update: A new post from Universal Hub indicates that there could actually end up being two locations of The Haven if Jason Waddleton is able to get a new liquor license for the proposed location at the brewery; otherwise, he would be looking at transferring the license from the current space to the new space.]
