It looks like a pair of dining and drinking spots in Brookline and Cambridge could soon be back down to just one, as its Cambridge location may be replaced by another restaurant.
According to a license commission agenda page within the city's website, Hops N Scotch in Inman Square is looking to transfer its liquor license to a new spot called Wits End, which would operate at the same Cambridge Street location. The Cambridge location of Hops N Scotch--which is also known as Hops Test Kitchen & Raw Bar--offers a rotating menu of French and Italian-influenced fare along with an extensive whiskey and scotch list, while the original Brookline location focuses more on comfort food as well as beer, scotch, whiskey, and bourbon.
Very little information is available on Wits End; as soon as we find out more about the place, we will post an update here.
The address for Hops Test Kitchen & Raw Bar/Hops N Scotch in Inman Square (and the proposed Wits End) is 1248 Cambridge Street, Cambridge, MA, 02139. The website for both locations of Hops N Scotch can be found at http://hopsnscotchbar.com/
