Another Boylston Street bar shuts down

Lir announced today it's shutting down - less than a day after the neighboring Pour House announced its closure:

We are sad to announce that after seventeen years of business we will be closing our doors for good. Since the day we opened we felt a strong connection to the Boston community, and we would like to say thank you to our loyal patrons who stood by us along the way.

McGreevey's shut last month; Whiskey's closed in July.

Gov. Baker ordered bars shut in March due to Covid-19. They are not scheduled to re-open until after the widespread release of an effective treatment or vaccine.

Will have enough space to turn the whole streetfront into the future of the working class economy, namely an Amazon fulfillment center.

This year sucks.

I’m not going to VI Lenin this thing but come spring of 2021 we may be looking at upwards of 50% of licensed venues closed and I’m being very conservative here. The next couple of weeks may be the worst we’ve seen in a very long time.

...Boston's centuries-old institutions closed down because the real estate was worth more than the business, doesn't it?

crisis, but that place stank, literally -- less so figuratively, but still. Feckin' smelliest bar in the Back Bay, maybe all of central Boston. Lots of nice screens could not distract from that rank frat-basement stench.

Still, it served an audience, and the circumstances that led to its closing were totally unnecessary. All that was required was competent national leadership, and ours face-planted hard.
