Spirit Bar and Restaurant in Cambridge to Become The Dubliner Pub

An Irish pub in North Cambridge is going to be morphing into an all-new Irish pub, with the ownership remaining the same.

A message sent to us from the dining and drinking spot indicates that Spirit Bar and Restaurant on Mass. Ave. is going to become The Dubliner Pub, with a "moderate" build-out planned along with all-new decor and a new menu (including a Saturday and Sunday brunch). Construction on the new spot will start in approximately a week, with an opening expected around March 8.

[February 28 update: Eater Boston reports that Spirit will close during the first week of March so that renovations can be made, and that The Dubliner Pub is now planning to open on March 9.]

[March 8 update: A new post from Eater Boston indicates that The Dubliner Pub opens tonight.]

Spirit Bar and Restaurant has been a place that our sister site (Boston's Hidden Restaurants) has featured as an under-the-radar Irish pub to check out. A review of the spot can be found here:


The address for Spirit (and the new Dubliner Pub) is 2046 Massachusetts Avenue, Cambridge, MA, 02140. Their Facebook page can be found at https://www.facebook.com/pages/The-Dubliner-Pub-Cambridge/112380438947224
