Atwood's Tavern in Cambridge Is Closing

A beloved restaurant, bar, and music venue in Cambridge is saying farewell.

According to a Facebook post from the place, Atwood's Tavern on Cambridge Street is getting ready to shut down permanently, with the post saying the following:

Atwood's Tavern will be closing our doors for the last time on March 31st. We would like to wholeheartedly thank everyone who has been a part of our community over the past 16 years. Atwood's wouldn't be Atwood's without all of you. So, if you get the chance, come by in the next month to say farewell....Thanks for all of the good times and memories.

The post hints that a new restaurant/bar could be taking over the space, saying that "This place has been a neighborhood spot and will continue to be....While we don't know yet who will be picking up the mantle, we are confident that they will provide the neighborhood with the community space it deserves."

Atwood's is known for its comfort food, extensive beer list, and wine and cocktail options while also hosting countless local bands and acts over the years.

The address for Atwood's Tavern is 877 Cambridge Street, Cambridge, MA, 02141. Its website can be found at
