Cheers at Faneuil Hall Marketplace Is Closing for Good

A replica of a bar that was the focal point of a beloved sitcom is shutting down for good.

According to a source, Cheers at Faneuil Hall Marketplace is closing permanently after 20 years in business, with a press release indicating that the last day for the bar will be August 30. The release mentions that the COVID-19 pandemic played into the decision, while the lack of help from the landlord made the "current challenge insurmountable," according to owner Tom Kershaw.

The Faneuil Hall location of Cheers is a recreation of the bar shown on the set of Cheers, a TV show that ran from 1982 to 1993. (The original Cheers/Bull & Finch Pub, which is located on Beacon Street, will remain in operation.)

The address for the Faneuil Hall location of Cheers is 1 S Market Street, Boston, MA, 02109. Its website can be found at https://cheersboston.com/locations/faneuil-hall
