by Marc Hurwitz

An Irish pub that has been around for nearly 30 years is shutting down.

According to a source, The Green Briar in Brighton is closing its doors for good, with a note on the pub's website stating that its last day of service will be Monday, May 6. The note says the following:

This was a difficult and sad decision to make. We want to recognize and express sincere appreciation for our staff - some have been with us since the very beginning. Their hard work and dedication to providing warm hospitality was what made the Green Briar so special. We have met with the team regarding the closing date and our priority is to help each employee transfer jobs. To our guests, thank you. We hope to see you and say good-bye before our last day of service.

The Green Briar is one of a number of restaurants and bars from The Briar Group, including such spots as Anthem, City Table, The Harp, Ned Devine's, O'Connor's, and Solas.

The address for The Green Briar is 304 Washington Street, Brighton, MA, 02135.
