    Massachusetts Beer Bar Plans to Rise Again

    This week’s Restaurant Roundup includes a business making a comeback, a cat cafe in trouble and the closing of a popular karaoke spot. (Published Friday, Oct. 4, 2019)

    A restaurant and bar that was located in a space with one of the best-known roofdecks in Boston has shut down.

    According to consultant and publicist Kerry J. Byrne, the Globe Bar & Cafe in the Back Bay is now closed, with Byrne and several other sources (including @mrovelli) indicating that it was an abrupt closure that took place over the weekend. This has since been confirmed by another source, who showed us a note from the Boylston Street spot saying that its closure was "due to unseen circumstances."

    The Globe Bar & Cafe first opened a bit less than 15 years ago on a section of Boylston Street in the Copley Square area, moving from there to the former Rattlesnake Bar & Grill space a short distance east in early 2018. The place was known in part for its New American and classic American fare along with its cocktails--and its aforementioned roofdeck.

    The address for the Globe Bar & Cafe was 384 Boylston Street, Boston, MA, 02116.
