Yesterday it was confirmed that a beloved Boston bar that has existed for more than 100 years has closed, but now we understand that the space may not be closed for long.
According to the message sent to us, the Red Hat of the Beacon Hill community in the city is being purchased, and it is on Facebook postal The comment from Jake Nicholson is as follows (Keith Gleason also posted the same post, and he was also involved):
With all the media and speculation about the farewell to another bar in Boston, several industry veterans agreed to buy the famous Red Hat. We are seeking to inject new vitality into this 110-year-old puddle, which is full of nostalgic legends. Stay tuned for the resurrection of Beacon Hill’s staple food, while preserving its rich history in Boston’s evolving post-Covid bar landscape!
It is not clear whether Nicholson and Gleason will retain the Red Hat name; as soon as we discover more information, we will post an update here.
For many years, Red Hat has been a popular place for college students at nearby Suffolk University, as well as corporate and government workers.
The address of The Red Hat is 9 Bowdoin Street, Boston, MA, 02114.
