Chubbs Taco & Tequila Bar Is Replacing The Industry Bar & Grill in Dorchester's Adams Village

A neighborhood comfort food spot just off the Southeast Expressway is being replaced by a Mexican restaurant, and the person involved with the proposed place has also been involved with a nearby dining and drinking spot.

According to a licensing board hearing page within the City of Boston website, The Industry Bar & Grill in the Adams Village section of Dorchester is transfering its liquor license to Chubbs Taco & Tequila Bar, which would open within the Adams Street space and whose listed manager is Kerry Santry of The Bowery in Lower Mills. The proposed transfer is slated to be looked at on Wednesday, November 1, so more information on Chubbs should be out by later next week.

The Industry first opened in 2017, replacing Sonny's Pub & Restaurant. 

The address for The Industry Bar & Grill (and Chubbs Taco & Tequila Bar) is 750 Adams Street, Dorchester, MA, 02122.

[December 27 update: The Dorchester Reporter mentions that The Industry Bar & Grill closes today, and the upcoming Chubbs Taco & Tequila Bar--which will replace it--indeed has a connection to The Bowery as well as the nearby Lucy's American Tavern and other dining and drinking spots, as Julian Bolger is behind the new place.]

[May 9, 2024 update: A new article from The Dorchester Reporter states that Chubbs Taco & Tequila Bar is now open (thanks to Adam of Universal Hub for bringing this to our attention).]
