Ames Plow Tavern at Faneuil Hall Marketplace in Boston Is Closing

A decades-old pub in downtown Boston that is a fixture among tourists and locals alike is getting ready to close.

According to a Facebook post from the place, Ames Plow Tavern within the city's Faneuil Hall Marketplace has decided to shut down for good, with its last day being at the end of 2015. The note says that "we'd like to extend our deepest gratitude to all of our friends both local and out of town that have passed through those doors since we first opened them in 1976, you guys have truly made these last 4 decades special....Cheers and Happy Holidays! -The Arcand Family." At this point in time, it is not known exactly why the owners are shutting down the bar, nor is it known what might be going into its space; as soon as we find out more, we will post an update here.

Ames Plow, which resides mostly in a basement space by the eastern end of Quincy Market's north building, offers mostly pub grub and classic American fare, including clam chowder, wings, burgers, hot dogs, and pizza, along with beer, wine, and cocktails.

The address for Ames Plow is 294 Faneuil Hall Marketplace, Boston, MA, 02109.
