Crossroads Irish Pub in Boston's Back Bay to Close

It looks like a well-known Irish pub in the Back Bay of Boston is getting ready to close its doors.

According to a Facebook post on the pub's page (in the "Recent Posts by Others" section of the page, from someone who works there), Crossroads Irish Pub on Beacon Street is going to be shutting down. At this point, we have not been able to confirm an exact closing date, though several posters on Facebook and Twitter are saying it could happen toward the end of the month or in April.

[April 8 update: A article mentions that the last day for Crossroads Irish Pub will be a week from today (Monday, April 15), which happens to be Marathon Monday.]

[April 14 update: A new Facebook post indicates that Crossroads is going to remain open until Saturday (April 20). Thanks to several folks on Twitter and Facebook for letting us know about this.]

[April 22 update: According to their Facebook page, Crossroads has closed.]

The address for this pub in the Back Bay is: Crossroads Irish Pub, 495 Beacon Street, Boston, MA, 02215. Their website can be found at

Thanks to Drew Starr for initially bringing this to our attention, and thanks to @BostonTweet for sending an update on this as well.
