Remnant Brewing Is Opening in the Former Atwood's Tavern Space in Cambridge's Inman Square

A couple of months ago, it was reported that a beloved Cambridge restaurant, bar, and live music venue was shutting down, and now we have learned that a nearby brewery will be taking over its space.

According to a poster within the Friends of Boston's Hidden Restaurants Facebook group page, Remnant Brewing at Bow Market in Somerville's Union Square is expanding to the former Atwood's Tavern space on Cambridge Street in Inman Square, with a Facebook post from the business saying the following:

Okay, remember when we told y'all we were expanding?? We're delighted to share that our upcoming second location will be nestled at 877 Cambridge St, Cambridge, MA! This remarkable space is formerly home to Atwood's Tavern! We are stoked to be given the opportunity to continue the legacy of Atwood's by creating a warm, community-centric, and welcoming place for everyone. Stay tuned for more updates as we embark on this exciting new chapter!

It is not yet known whether the new location of Remnant will feature live music, nor is it known what kind of food it might offer, so stay tuned for updates as they come in.

Atwood's closed at the end of March after being in business for 16 years; Remnant first opened at Bow Market in 2018.

The address for the new location of Remnant Brewing in Inman Square is 877 Cambridge Street, Cambridge, MA, 02141. The website for the business can be found at https://www.remnantsomerville.com/

[May 19 update: An article from Cambridge Day indicates that Remnant Brewing's new spot in the former Atwood's Tavern space will indeed feature live music, with co-founder David Kushner saying that "Atwood's was always a Remnant favorite because of the beautiful space, amazing staff and the live music. In addition to expanding the types of entertainment, we plan on booking a lot of the same bands that guests came to love and expect at Atwood's."]

[August 25 update: A poster within the Friends of Boston's Hidden Restaurants Facebook group page mentions that Remnant is now in the process of soft opening in the old Atwood's space, with a Facebook post from Remnant stating that its official opening is slated to take place on September 1.]
