Nash Bar & Stage Is Opening in the Former Abby Lane Space in Boston's Theater District

A few months ago, it was reported that a restaurant in the Theater District of Boston might be opening this fall after being closed since late last year, and now we have learned that a new concept will be coming to the space.

According to a series of tweets from @amysalv from last month, a new awning is now up at the site of Abby Lane on Tremont Street that shows the word "Nashville" while an Instagram page indicates that the upcoming spot will be called Nash Bar & Stage and that it will be bringing "a lil bit of Nashville to Boston." A page within the bostonchefs.com site shows the address for Nash Bar & Stage as being the same as Abby Lane while also mentioning local restaurateur/celebrity chef Jason Santos (and his Buttermilk & Bourbon Restaurant Group), confirming that the concept change will indeed be taking place at the site

Abby Lane, which first opened in 2012, shut down as of November of 2020, as Santos told us at the time that the lack of a patio along with no theatergoers in the area both played a role in the decision.

The address for Nash Bar & Stage (and the now-closed Abby Lane) is 253 Tremont Street, Boston, MA, 02116. Its Instagram page can be found at https://www.instagram.com/nashbarboston/ while its website is at https://www.nashbarboston.com/

[November 19 update: According to a press release, Nash Bar & Stage will offer such items as cornbread, biscuits, Nashville hot chicken, push-pop mimosas, adult lime rickeys, moonshine, spiked milkshakes, and more.]

[January 17, 2022 update: Nash Bar & Stage had a grand opening party on New Year's Eve, though a press release indicates that its official opening to the public is today.]
