Tradesman Plans to Open in Charlestown

A coffee shop and lounge in downtown Boston is looking to expand to a space in a part of Charlestown with few dining options.

According to a licensing hearing page within the city's website, Tradesman is planning to open on Hood Park Drive, moving into a space within The Harvey apartment development just south of Sullivan Square. An article from the Charlestown Bridge mentions that Mark Grzelak and Mevzad Durakovic of Tradesman in the Hilton hotel on Broad Street are behind the proposed spot, which would be a coffee shop in the morning and a full-service restaurant at lunch and dinner while also having a bar and an outdoor patio. 

In addition to Tradesman, Grzelak and Durakovic also run Louie's and Fin Point Oyster Bar + Grille in downtown Boston.

The address for the proposed Tradesman in Charlestown is 50 Hood Park Drive, Charlestown, MA, 02129. The website for the original Tradesman can be found at
