An Irish pub in Boston that closed a few years ago only to reopen may be closing again--and replaced by a new spot.
According to a source, Crossroads Irish Pub on Beacon Street in the city's Back Bay neighborhood has petitioned to transfer the business to a new company, which would open St. Locale in the space. Little other information has been given, other than the fact that the manager listed for the new spot is George Vinal, and that the name of the parent company is SVRE LLC.
Crossroads shut down in early 2013, then reopened later that year under new ownership and with little in the way of changes. The bar is a popular place with both college students and Red Sox fans (Fenway Park is a few blocks to the west).
The address for Crossroads Irish Pub (and the proposed St. Locale) is 495 Beacon Street, Boston, MA, 02215. Its website is at http://www.crossroads-irishpub.com/
