A little over a year after opening, Shanghai Social Club has closed, posting a sign outside that mentions a new concept opening this spring under the same ownership, according to an article on Boston Restaurant Talk. The Allston restaurant and bar is the latest to move out of the revolving door that is 1277 Commonwealth, which has seen both Jalapenos and Our House West come and go in recent years.
The restaurant posted on Facebook:
"Shanghai Social Club is now closed. We are thankful for our outstanding staff, and our customers support. Business conditions have been challenging, and it is not possible to continue. Please look for us to reopen as a new and exciting Restaurant and Bar with a new identity in the spring of 2015."
