Osborn Tavern in Danvers Has Closed

A North Shore bar that has had multiple liquor license violations over the past couple of years appears to have closed for good.

According to an article from Wicked Local, Osborn Tavern in Danvers hinted over the past few days that it would be shutting down, with Facebook posts on February 28 and 29 mentioning a "last hurrah" and "open one last time." A phone call placed by Wicked Local was answered by someone who indicated that the owner "was not available at the time of call and would not be available at any other time" and then hung up. It is not sure exactly why the Maple Street watering hole has closed, so if we get any updates, we will post them here.

Osborn Tavern has faced several different liquor-related incidents over the past couple of years that resulted in meetings with the Board of Selectmen, though punishments against the place were successfully appealed. A Patch article mentions that the Alcoholic Beverages Control Commission was slated to hear the latest appeal of a liquor license suspension that was centered around three women being served too much alcohol last August.

The address for Osborn Tavern was 49 Maple Street, Danvers, MA, 01923.
