Arc Is Replacing An Tua Nua
Last week, we reported that an Irish pub in the Fenway section of Boston closed after being in business for more than 15 years. Now we have learned that the owners of the place are going to reopen it with a new name, but little else in the way of changes.
Universal Hub is reporting that the folks behind the now-shuttered An Tua Nua on Beacon Street will open Arc in its place, with bar attorney Karen Simao telling the Boston Licensing Board that the new name (which is defined as a part of the circumference of a circle) and logo are designed to attract the "math, science and engineering students" who now live in the neighborhood. UH says that the food/drink menu at Arc will remain mostly the same, and that workers from An Tua Nua will continue to work at the new spot.
[June 25 update: Eater Boston states (via the spot's Facebook page) that Arc plans to open this Thursday (June 27), with its official name possibly being "Arc Nightclub & Lounge."]
[June 27 update: An update from Eater Boston says that Arc has had to push back its opening because of "unforeseen circumstances." As soon as we hear about a new opening date, we will post another update here.]
[July 3 update: UrbanDaddy reports that Arc is now open.]
The address for this new restaurant and bar in Boston's Fenway area is: Arc, 835 Beacon Street, Boston, MA, 02215.
