Joey's in Brighton Is Closing

A neighborhood watering hole in Brighton is closing this weekend after approximately 30 years in business.

Eater Boston is reporting that Joey's on Market Street is shutting down after business hours on Sunday, July 27, with a Facebook post from the bar saying "to come by and say Thank you Joey for being here for so long and making a place for us to come to that no matter how you were dressed or how you felt you could walk in, see a friendly face and the day or night would get that much better." One it closes, the liquor license may be going to the Dorchester, a restaurant coming to Neponset Avenue near Dorchester's Neponset Circle.

According to a page on the Manta site, Joey's has been in business since 1984.

The address for this soon-to-close bar in Brighton is: Joey's, 416 Market Street, Brighton, MA, 02135.
