Roslindale Substation formally re-opens as co-working space/beer hall with a pop-up bookshop

Violinsts in the Roslindale Substation

The Substation in Roslindale Square formally opened today, starting with a performance by Musiconnects overlooking Adams Park.

The former trolley substation at Washington Street and Cummins Highway has actually been open for several years, with uses that have included a craft-beer shop and a beer hall.

Adam Rogoff, who helped steer the transformation of a decaying, unused eyesore into a large community space, said that going forward, the building with the tall ceilings - and a heavy hook left over from its electrical-power days, will serve as home base for WorkHub at the SubStation, a beer hall served by a rotation of local breweries, currently the Brockton Beer Co. and for a series of events.

Musicians won't be on the regular schedule (but circus performers will!), one thing they don't want to do is compete with the Square Root, which has its own musical calendar.
