Plans for Waxy O'Connor's to Open at Somerville's Assembly Row Have Fallen Through

by Marc Hurwitz

Last year, we reported that a group of Irish pubs was planning to expand to Somerville. Now we have learned that this will not be happening after all.

According to a source, plans for Waxy O'Connor's to open at Assembly Row have fallen through, with an email sent to us this morning confirming this news, stating that another restaurant/concept is now being pursued for that space. This comes on the heels of chatter from multiple sources saying that Waxy's would indeed no longer be coming to Assembly Row, though it had not been officially confirmed until now.

As reported earlier, the Brookline location of Waxy O'Connor's shut down in January (which sparked the rumors of Waxy's in Somerville no longer happening), though other locations in Foxboro, Kingston, Lexington, and Woburn remain in operation, as well as others in Keene, NH, Plainville, CT, San Antonio, TX, and Ft. Lauderdale, FL.
