Silhouette Lounge in Allston Reopens Under New Management

A beloved Boston dive bar has returned.

According to a press release, as well as an article from Universal Hub (via @BrandonBowser3), the Silhouette Lounge in Allston opens back up today under new management, with Fred Starikov of City Realty and his business partners taking over the Brighton Avenue watering hole, as the previous owner Joseph Eliseo--who first purchased the place in 1979--has retired. Universal Hub says that no changes are expected, while the press release confirms this, saying that other than some minor cosmetic repairs, the place will remain as is.

The Silhouette Lounge, which dates back to 1965, is known in part for its cheap beer, darts, and free popcorn.

The address for the Silhouette Lounge is 200 Brighton Avenue, Allston, MA, 02134.
