Cornwall's in Boston's Kenmore Square Is Moving

A pub that is popular with both college students and sports fans is moving to a new space, though the space isn't very far away.

According to a Twitter post from @BostonTweet, Cornwall's has left its current location on Beacon Street in Boston's Kenmore Square as it gets ready to reopen next door. We have been told that the pub is moving because the building in which resides is being demolished, and it appears that it may open in its new home on Thursday.

Cornwall's first opened in 1973, being known as a laid-back British-style watering hole where customers can play pool and board games. This is actually the second move for the pub, as several sources mention that it used to be housed on nearby Commonwealth Avenue.

The old address for Cornwall's was 654 Beacon Street, and it looks like the new address will be 644 Beacon Street; the website for the pub can be found at http://www.cornwalls.com/

[August 16 update: @BostonTweet tells us that Cornwall's is now open in its new home.]
