Cheeky Monkey Brewing Co. to Open in Former Tequila Rain Space in Boston's Fenway Neighborhood

A new brewpub is on its way to Boston, and it will be taking over the space by Fenway Park that had been home to a nightclub.

Eater Boston is reporting that Cheeky Monkey Brewing Co. is opening on Landsdowne Street, moving into the former Tequila Rain space by Loretta's Last Call and the Jillian's/Lucky Strike entertainment complex. It looks like the new spot will feature beer that is brewed on the premises along with fried snacks and sandwiches, and the place is also expected to have shuffleboard and pool tables. If all goes as planned, Cheeky Monkey Brewing Co. could be opening sometime later this summer.

Tequila Rain closed for good over the winter after being in business for more than 12 years.

The address for the upcoming Cheeky Monkey Brewing Co. is 3 Lansdowne Street, Boston, MA, 02215. Its website will be at
