Newtowne Grille in Cambridge Is Closing Down

A decades-old Cambridge watering hole that is known for its pizza is saying farewell.

According to an article from Cambridge Day, Newtowne Grille in the city's Porter Square area is closing its doors this weekend, with Saturday expected to be its last day in business. The old-school bar, which dates back to the mid-1960s, had been closed for a number of months due to the outbreak of the coronavirus in March of 2020, but it opened back up shortly before Thanksgiving of that year.

Cambridge Day says that the people behind Sugar & Spice, which resides in the same block, will be taking over the Newtowne Grill space, opening a new Asian concept there.

It appears that the Billerica location of Newtowne Grill will remain in operation.

The address for the soon-to-close Newtowne Grill in Porter Square is 1945 Massachusetts Avenue, Cambridge, MA, 02140. Its website is at
