Spoke Wine Bar in Somerville's Davis Square Is Closing
A Somerville restaurant that has been a fave among those both inside and outside of the restaurant industry since opening a few years back has announced that it is shutting its doors.
Eater Boston is reporting that Spoke Wine Bar in Davis Square is closing for good later this year, with a Facebook post from the Holland Street spot saying "This is a tough one. On December 22, 2016, Spoke will close its doors. There's no other way to say this, except to say it. We've had a very good run. But now it is done." The note goes on to indicate that owner Flea Foster has been dealing with serious health issues and has "tried to remain at the helm from afar," but mentions that "as any of you in this industry who are owners/operators know, this is not an ideal way to run a business." While it is not yet known what might happen to the space, Foster does say that she hopes someone within the industry might want to buy it and keep it going.
Spoke Wine Bar, which first opened in March of 2013, has been known in part for its highly-regarded wine list along with its snacks, small plates, and desserts.
The address for Spoke is 89 Holland Street, Somerville, MA, 02144. Its website can be found at http://www.spokewinebar.com/
[December 12 update: A new Facebook post from the place mentions that Spoke Wine Bar still plans to close on December 22.]
