Cathedral Station Is Opening in Former Red Fez Space in Boston's South End
A sports bar and pub that caters to the LGBT community is going to be opening in the South End of Boston, and it has a connection to another South End bar that recently closed to make way for a new spot.
BosGuy is reporting that Cathedral Station will open on Washington Street, taking over the space where the Red Fez, a Middle Eastern restaurant, had been since 1940 (with the place reopening in 2002 after being closed for a number of years). The article says that William Svetz,who had been the general manager of the now-closed Fritz on Chandler Street, is one of the people behind it, and Gary Staples and Joe McGowan of Fritz will also be working there. (Trophy Room will be opening in Fritz's space.)
The Facebook page for Cathedral Station says that the spot will have a dining area, a bar area, and a section for entertainment including dart boards and pool tables, along with an outdoor patio.
According to BosGuy, Cathedral Station could be opening around the end of May.
[June 2 update: Eater Boston mentions (via a Facebook post from the restaurant) that Cathedral Station plans to open on June 12.]
The address for this new bar in the South End is: Cathedral Station, 1222 Washington Street, Boston, MA, 02118.
