Hops N Scotch Is Opening in Haveli Space Cambridge's Inman Square

It appears that the folks behind a restaurant and bar in Brookline are planning to open a second location across the river.

According to a License Commission General Hearing page on the City of Cambridge website, Hops N Scotch is seeking a liquor license held by Haveli Restaurant, with the plan apparently being to move into that their space on Cambridge Street in Inman Square. If the license transfer goes through, the new eating and drinking establishment would have a seating capacity of 99, with proposed hours being 11:00 AM to 1:00 AM seven days a week.

[February 28 update: Eater Boston mentions that the liquor license transfer has been approved for the new Hops N Scotch in Cambridge.]

[May 7 update: According to a poster on the Chowhound site, Haveli is now closed, as they "gave away everything in the place over the weekend." A call placed to them indicates that the number has been changed, with the new phone number going unanswered.]

[April 29, 2015 update: A new article from Eater Boston mentions that the new Hops N Scotch in Cambridge is soft-opening tonight, with an RSVP-only grand opening party taking place.]

[May 4, 2015 update: Eater Boston states that Hops N Scotch is now officially open in Inman Square.]

Hops N Scotch first opened its doors on Beacon Street in Brookline's Coolidge Corner in August of 2012. The place features southern-style comfort food along with a wide variety of beer, scotch, whiskey, bourbon, and more.

The address for the new location of Hops N Scotch in Inman Square is 1248 Cambridge Street, Cambridge, MA, 02139. The website for the original location is at
