J.J. Foley's Fireside Tavern in Jamaica Plain Is Closing

Yet another longtime dive bar in Boston is shutting down.

According to a source within the restaurant industry, J.J. Foley's Fireside Tavern in the Forest Hills section of Jamaica Plain is closing its doors this weekend, with Sunday slated to be its last day in operation. J.J Foley's--which has an indirect ownership connection to the two J.J. Foley's in Boston's South End and Financial District--dates back to at least the 1940s, offering cheap drinks (no food, though people can bring food in) and having an electric fireplace while also having games such as darts and pinball, the latter of which is no longer there.

The address for  J.J. Foley's Fireside Tavern is 30 Hyde Park Avenue, Jamaica Plain, MA, 02130.
