Last summer we reported that a downtown Boston watering hole popular with theatergoers was up for sale. Now we have learned that it appears to be closing, with a new spot with a possible connection to a Newton restaurant and bar moving into the space.
According to a licensing board hearing page within the city's website, the Intermission Tavern in the Theater District is seeking to transfer its liquor license to a spot tentatively called The Fourth Wall, which would operate in the Tremont Street space. The manager listed is Derek Brady while the parent company is Brewed Intentions, LLC, with a check on the business indicating (via Bizapedia) that Theodore Connolly is also involved; Brady and Connolly are two of the people behind Union Street Restaurant and Bar in Newton Centre, though it is not known if there will be a direct business connection between the two places or if they will be run separately (we will post an update as soon as we find out more on the exact connection).
The Intermission Tavern first opened in 2005, replacing a dive bar called Charlie Flynn's.
The address for the Intermission Tavern (and proposed Fourth Wall) is 228 Tremont Street, Boston, MA, 02116.
