It looks like yet another dive bar in Boston could be shutting down, and its license may be going to a building in one of the hottest sections of the city.
According to an article from Universal Hub, the Cottage Cafe (which is also known as the Cottage Tavern) in Hyde Park is petitioning to sell its liquor license to the Innovation and Design Building in Boston's Seaport District, which may possibly open a restaurant and bar in the structure that is aimed at "makers, designers, architects, communicators, researchers, manufacturers, technologists, innovators and entrepreneurs." If approved and the place shutters, the Hyde Park Avenue bar would join a couple of other now-closed dives in the neighborhood (Dempsey's and the Hyde Park Pub), though a few other watering holes do remain in operation in Hyde Park, including Master McGrath, Cavan Cafe, and Cappy's, the last of which resides in Readville.
The address for the Cottage Cafe is 1227 Hyde Park Avenue, Hyde Park, MA, 02136.
