Hit Wicket in Cambridge's Inman Square Has Closed

A couple of months after it temporarily closed, it appears that a Cambridge sports bar that was the only one of its kind in the region--and apparently the first of its kind in the entire country--will not be reopening.

According to a source who works for the city, Hit Wicket in Inman Square is closed for good, a bit less than two years after first opening its doors on Cambridge Street. The dining and drinking spot was a cricket-themed place, offering foods from places that feature the sport, including Australia, England, India, Pakistan, South Africa, Sri Lanka, the West Indies, and New Zealand. In February, Hit Wicket shuttered with the hope being that it would reopen at some point, but it appears that those plans never came to fruition.

Hit Wicket first opened in June of 2013, taking over the space where Spice and Rice had been.

The address for the now-closed Hit Wicket was 1172 Cambridge Street, Cambridge, MA, 02139.
