A beachside bar and music club that has been in business for more than 50 years is up for sale.

WCVB Boston is reporting that the Beachcomber along Wollaston Beach in Quincy is on the market for $1.6 million, with the family-owned spot on Quincy Shore Drive remaining open at this point in time. The article says that the bar, which first opened in 1959, has seen the likes of such well-known performers as Count Basie, Louis Armstrong, the Dropkick Murphys, and Loretta Lynn, and currently features local bands and Irish music along with karaoke. The Beachcomber changed its name to Nostalgia in the early 1980s but went back to its original name in the late 1990s.
