City of Cambridge Warns Now-Closed T.T. the Bear's Place About License Fee

A legendary nightclub in Cambridge has apparently been asked to explain why its liquor license fee has not been paid, which brings up questions because the place has been closed for more than a year.

According to a License Commission General Hearing page within the city's website, the former T.T. the Bear's Place on Brookline Street has been issued a violation due to nonpayment of its alcohol licensing fee, with the post noting that the license is currently inactive. Last fall we had reported that owners Joseph and Nabil Sater of the adjacent Middle East nightclub were planning to take over the space and open a new club called Sonia's, though it was mentioned at the time that T.T. the Bear's owner Bonney Bouley still held the license for the space and that she would either need to use the license at a new space or transfer it to the club or another spot in Cambridge. (The T.T.'s space is still empty as of today, with no word on the status of Sonia's.)

T.T. the Bear's Place, which was established in the late 1980s, featured many local, national, and international acts over the years, including everything from indie rock to jazz and electronica.
