Tommy Doyle's Pub in Cambridge's Harvard Square Is Closing
An Irish pub in one of the busiest sections of Cambridge is going to be closing later this month.
According to a post on its Twitter page, Tommy Doyle's in Harvard Square is planning to close at the end of business hours on December 22 after being in business for approximately nine years. Another Twitter note from the place says that "we have decided to not renew our lease and are looking for new locations and opportunities." It looks like their other location in the Kendall Square section of Cambridge will remain open. (Locations of Tommy Doyle's in Newton and Hyannis are under separate ownership.)
[December 9 update: The Boston Business Journal mentions that the folks behind Tommy Doyle's are looking at Boston, Cambridge, or Somerville as possible locations of a replacement pub for the soon-to-close Harvard Square spot.]
[December 24 update: Posts on the Tommy Doyle's Facebook page confirm that the Harvard Square location has indeed officially closed.]
Tommy Doyle's first opened in Harvard Square in 2005, moving into the building where the House of Blues had been. (A newer House of Blues has since opened across from Fenway Park in Boston.)
The address for this soon-to-close pub in Harvard Square is 96 Winthrop Street, Cambridge, MA, 02138. The website for the remaining two spots can be found at http://tommydoyles.com/
