The Boston Eagle in the South End Is for Rent

One of the oldest gay bars in Boston appears to have closed for good.

According to a post from BosGuy, The Boston Eagle on Tremont Street is shuttered and now on the market, with BosGuy saying that "I started getting texts about four weeks ago that the Boston Eagle (a.k.a. "The Dirty Bird") had closed and was for rent. After doing a little digging I was able to confirm it is for rent. The lease for the 1,400 sq. foot bar also comes with the use of a license for food, entertainment and liquor until 2:00 AM." The drinking spot, which first opened more 40 years ago, was mostly a neighborhood bar, though BosGuy says that it catered "to all who could weather the withering stare from Jack the bartender."

The address for The Boston Eagle was 520 Tremont Street, Boston, MA, 02116.

Thanks to Universal Hub for initially bringing this to our attention.
