Revolution Rock Bar in Boston Closes; Julep Bar Taking Its Place

A nightclub, restaurant, and bar complex in Boston's Financial District has closed, and a new establishment is going to be moving into the space.

According to its Facebook page, the Revolution Rock Bar & Lounge on High Street shut down a few days ago, closing out with one final event (a Halloween party). A post within the EveryBlock Boston site indicates that a new place called the Julep Bar is apparently planning to take over the spot--no other information on the Julep Bar can be found at this point, so check back for updates over the coming days and weeks.

[November 16 update: According to Grub Street Boston, the folks behind Julep Bar operate several other Boston and Providence spots, including Blue Inc., Lola's Tequila Bar, McGreevy's, Petit Robert Central, and The Whiskey Republic. The article mentions that Blue Inc. is helping with the menu, which will apparently have such items as buffalo duck drumettes with Roquefort cheese and foie gras gravy cheese fries. The upcoming eatery will cater to a "corporate clientele," according to Grub Street.]

[November 29 update: According to UrbanDaddy, Julep Bar soft-opens this afternoon.]

The Revolution Rock Bar & Lounge was a multi-level venue that focused on live rock music (as well as DJs), including classic rock, alternative, and punk. The place also had dining and drinking areas, a VIP room, and an underground rock lounge for private events.

The address for the now-closed Revolution Rock Bar & Lounge (and upcoming Julep Bar) is 200 High Street, Boston, MA, 02110.
