Sweetwater Tavern in Downtown Boston Has Closed
A restaurant and bar that is hidden away in the heart of downtown Boston has closed after several decades in business, as its building is being demolished by a nearby college.
Based on a Twitter post from today, Sweetwater Tavern on Boylston Place (also known as the Alley) is in the midst of being "torn down," while a check on the bar's website shows a note that says "Sweetwater will soon be closing its doors. It's been a great 36 year run but on April 1st Emerson will be swinging the wrecking ball and tearing down the Alley." Another Twitter post--this one from the Twitter page for the bar's trivia nights--indicates that yesterday was apparently its final day in business.
Sweetwater Tavern, which first opened in 1978, has been known as a place to go for pub grub, drinks, karaoke, trivia nights, and live music, along with being a stop before and after the nearby clubs.
The address for the now-closed Sweetwater Tavern was 3 Boylston Place, Boston, MA, 02116.
