The Tam in Boston's Theatre District Has Closed; Exact Status Unknown

by Marc Hurwitz

Last summer, it was reported that an investor group had purchased several buildings in Boston, each of which was home to a bar, and now we have learned that another one of the bars has closed down--at least for now.

According to a source, The Tam in Boston's Theatre District has shuttered, with an Instagram post confirming that the Tremont Street watering hole indeed closed down last night. A Facebook post from the place includes a comment where The Tam says that "New people bought it they say it will be the same" but then goes on to say "We'll see." This appears to follow a pattern seen by the Beacon Hill Pub on Charles Street where that bar closed down in September and was possibly going to reopen in October with no changes other than ownership and apparently a new manager, but as of now, it remains closed.

According to an earlier article from Universal Hub, Greater Boston Bar Co. had purchased the buildings housing The Tam and the Beacon Hill Pub in July, along with Mary Ann's in Cleveland Circle. The Beacon Hill Times mentioned that Sullivan's Tap near North Station was apparently purchased by the same people as well, and we later reported that it looked like this was indeed the case based on an Open Corporates page and a hearing notice; Sullivan's Tap appears to be on the verge of changing ownership and possibly going through renovations, while an earlier report mentioned that Mary Ann's could be replaced by a cannabis dispensary, though this is not a done deal by any means.

The address for The Tam is 222 Tremont Street, Boston, MA, 02116.

[December 30 update: The Boston Globe reports that The Tam will reopen tomorrow, with no real changes expected to the place. (Sullivan's Tap near North Station will be reopening today as well, and will apparently have no major changes.)]
