From 1980 to 1991, The Channel a 1,500 capacity rock and roll club operated at 25 Necco Street, the largest and (IMO) best in Boston. Before that it was the notorious Mad Hatter disco.

"There's a low ceiling, two bars and functional, non-bolted tables around the perimeter (plans are to raise this area to improve presently iffy sight lines), but the nicest feature may be the two back picture windows overlooking Fort Point Channel. These lend a floating, cabin-cruiser ambiance. A stone floor is also neatly dovetailed with carpeting, giving what patron Toni Seger praised as a 'subterranean feel.'"

Steve Morse, Boston Globe, June 5, 1980
