Sweetwater Tavern in Downtown Boston Has Closed

A restaurant and bar that is hidden away in the heart of downtown Boston has closed after several decades in business, as its building is being demolished by a nearby college.

Based on a Twitter post from today, Sweetwater Tavern on Boylston Place (also known as the Alley) is in the midst of being "torn down," while a check on the bar's website shows a note that says "Sweetwater will soon be closing its doors. It's been a great 36 year run but on April 1st Emerson will be swinging the wrecking ball and tearing down the Alley." Another Twitter post--this one from the Twitter page for the bar's trivia nights--indicates that yesterday was apparently its final day in business.

Sweetwater Tavern, which first opened in 1978, has been known as a place to go for pub grub, drinks, karaoke, trivia nights, and live music, along with being a stop before and after the nearby clubs.

The address for the now-closed Sweetwater Tavern was 3 Boylston Place, Boston, MA, 02116.

These colleges are ruining this city. Buying everything, taking it off taxable property and destroying all the fun cool old places that Boston once had. So much for a world-class city..good luck finding a place to have at
