Barrett's Alehouse Is Opening in The Charlie Horse Space in West Bridgewater

A trio of restaurants and bars south of Boston is going to be joined by a fourth, and it will be taking over the space where an iconic sports bar and entertainment spot had been.

According to an article in The Enterprise, Barrett's Alehouse is planning to open in the former Charlie Horse Space in West Bridgewater, with the post saying that owner Mike Barrett is the brother of Charlie Horse co-owner Mary Barrett-Costello. The article says that major renovations will be done to the West Center Street space, including the bowling alley and stage for live music both being removed, a function room being added, and the dance floor being moved.

Once it opens, the new location of  Barrett's will join others in Bridgewater, North Attleboro, and Fall River, along with two other spots run by Mike Barrett--Castaways Bar and Grille in Bridgewater and Fireside Grille in Middleboro. If all goes as planned, the new spot could be opening within the next six months.

The Charlie Horse closed this summer after approximately 25 years in business; its other location in Kingston remains open.

The address for the new location of Barrett's Alehouse is 674 West Center Street, West Bridgewater, MA, 02379. The website for the other locations of Barrett's can be found at
