Daisy Buchanan's in the Back Bay of Boston to Close This Fall

Earlier this year, we had reported that a popular Back Bay bar was facing the possibility of foreclosure or being sold, and now it has been confirmed that the latter has happened, which means the place will be closing down.

The Boston Herald is reporting that Daisy Buchanan's on Newbury Street has been sold to UrbanMeritage, with principal Michael Jammen saying that the watering hole will likely close in early October or early November when the Red Sox season is over. In February, it was learned that Daisy's owner Joseph P. Cimino was looking at a possible foreclosure auction in early March, though the auction was postponed a couple of times before word finally came that the place--along with the property next door at 41 Fairfield Street--had been sold.

[May 1 update: According to a new article in The Boston Globe, Daisy Buchanan's may remain open after all, with a rep for the bar's owner saying "The building has been sold, but Daisy's is not closing...They will continue to serve their hot dogs, hamburgers, and Chardonnay." This seems to conflict with the information given by UrbanMeritage. (Expect more updates as soon as we find out the exact status of Daisy's.)]

Daisy Buchanan's has been in business since 1970.

The address for Daisy Buchanan's is 240 Newbury Street, Boston, MA, 02116.
