The Littlest Bar and The Times in Boston May Be Forced Out to Make Way for New Development

A few years after first reporting that an iconic Boston bar might lose its home again, there is now word that both it and the pub next door could be shut down to make room for a new residential structure.

Universal Hub is reporting that developers are looking to construct a new complex on Broad Street in the Financial District that would turn The Littlest Bar into a lobby and some residential units--and renovate the Bulfinch building in which it is housed--and demolish the adjacent structure that is home to The Times Irish Pub & Restaurant, which is where a 12-story condo building would go. The post says that the new development would have space for a cafe on the first floor, with room for an outdoor patio included.

In 2006, The Littlest Bar was forced to leave its original home on Province Street where it had been since 1945 in order to make room for condos (it moved to its present location in 2008). The Times has been located on Broad Street for more than 15 years.

The address for The Littlest Bar is 102 Broad Street while the address for The Times is 112 Broad Street.
