J.J. Mulligan's in Braintree Is Closing; Southside Tavern in Quincy to Take Over Space

A restaurant and bar in South Braintree Square is getting ready to close its doors, and a watering hole in neighboring Quincy is planning to open a new place in the spot.

An email sent to us by one of our readers indicates that J.J. Mulligan's on Washington Street is shutting down over the coming days, with a possible closing at the end of business hours on New Year's Eve. A recent Braintree Board of License Commissioners page confirms that Mulligan's is closing, and that (as our emailer states) the folks behind the Southside Tavern on Liberty Street in South Quincy are looking to take over the spot, though it is not known what the name of the new place will be at this point in time. (Southside Tavern is petitioning for a transfer of Mulligan's common victualler, alcohol, and entertainment licenses.)

[March 28, 2012 update: Based on an email from one of our readers (and confirmed via the restaurant's Facebook page), the new Southside Tavern in Braintree is now open.]

The address for the soon-to-close J.J. Mulligan's (and new restaurant and bar from the Southside Tavern people) is 941 Washington Street, Braintree, MA, 02184.
