Stadium Sports Bar and Grill in Downtown Boston and South Boston Have Closed; Quincy Location Remains Open
Last month we reported that a location of a local group of sports bars had been sold. Now we have learned that the other two have closed down.
A phone call placed to Stadium Sports Bar and Grill in Quincy indicates that its locations in downtown Boston and South Boston are now shuttered, while the bar on Hancock Street in Quincy Center remains open under new ownership (the people behind The Crossing on Tremont Street in Boston's Mission Hill area purchased it). A licensing board page within the City of Boston website shows that the Southie location on Old Colony Avenue may be transferred to a new owner--though little else is known right now--while the status of the downtown location on State Street is unknown at this point in time.
[January 14 update: Universal Hub is reporting that the proposed license transfer mentioned above for the South Boston location of the Stadium is not technically a sale to another restaurant/bar owner; the article says that developers want to purchase the building--and have the liquor license included in the sale--and tear down the structure in order to build 20 condos at the site, with retail/restaurant space being a possibility on the ground floor. According to UH, if the developers can't find someone to open a dining spot there, they would sell the license.]
Another outlet of Stadium Sports Bar and Grill on Moody Street in Waltham closed in 2013 and became a bar called Playmakers.
The address for the remaining Stadium location is 1495 Hancock Street, Quincy, MA, 02169. Its website can be found at http://www.stadiumbars.com/
Thanks to Jim Lokay of WCVB-TV Boston for bringing this to our attention.
