The Grand Canal in Boston Has Apparently Closed
It looks like an Irish pub, restaurant, and entertainment spot near Boston's Haymarket Square has shut its doors for good.
According to a Twitter post from @badgerboxes last night, The Grand Canal on Canal Street appears to be closed, with one sign out front saying "Rest In Peace Grand Canal" and another saying "Never Forget RIP Trivia Tuesday." This seems to jibe with what a source told us recently--that the bar may be shuttering--though there was no word it was definitely closing, and based on another tweet from @badgerboxes, it looked like a trivia night may have been in the works for yesterday but it did not happen because the place was locked up.
The Grand Canal, which first opened approximately 20 years ago, was known in part for its live music and DJs along with trivia nights and paint nights; it also offered pub grub and comfort food as well as beer, wine, and cocktails.
The address for this now-closed pub in Boston was: The Grand Canal, 57 Canal Street, Boston, MA, 02114.
