Liberty Tavern Is Opening in the Former Angelo's Coal Fired Pizza Space in Quincy

A new restaurant is coming to a red-hot downtown area that is being redeveloped, and it would be opening in the space where a pizzeria had been until it shut down last fall.

According to a source, Liberty Tavern is planning to open in Quincy Center, with a Board of License Commissioners Agenda page within the city's website indicating that the dining spot would be moving into the space on Hancock Street where Angelo's Coal Fired Pizza had been. Very little is known about the proposed restaurant other than the fact that it is seeking a common victualler license, a full liquor license, and a cabaret license, the last of which indicates that Liberty Tavern may have a section where patrons can dance.

Angelo's shut down in November of 2018 after approximately four years in business.

The address for the new Liberty Tavern is 1657 Hancock Street, Quincy, MA, 02169.

[June 3 update: According to a Facebook post from the place, Liberty Tavern is hoping to open in July, with City of Quincy consultant and publicist Kerry J. Byrne saying that Evan Harrington (Lincoln Tavern in South Boston) and Nick Palermo (Greyhound Tavern in Bridgewater) are behind the place which will offer "classic American favorites" while having a wood-fired oven.]

[July 28 update: A new Facebook post states that Liberty Tavern is now open for takeout.]
