The Ginger Man Moves Ahead With Boston Expansion

The Texas-based beer bar is getting ready to set up shop downtown.

A new beer bar is finally on its way downtown: The Ginger Man is now hiring employees for a January opening on State Street. Expansion to Boston has been in the works for three years but hit roadblocks at a couple of previous locations. As Boston Restaurant Talk reported nearly a year ago, this one — 148 State St., near Faneuil Hall — appeared to stick. The tavern chain, which originated in Houston, is named after a 1955 J.P. Donleavy novel.

The Ginger Man has locations across Texas, in New York, and in Connecticut, and made a first attempt to open a tavern in Boston in 2012, but received some disapproval from the Fort Point neighborhood, as previously reported.

According to a City of Boston licensing board page, The Ginger Man is set to take over the seven-day all-alcohol license from the former Stadium Sports Bar & Grill, which was located in the same space, and it will join an already-bustling downtown Boston bar scene.

The new location is looking for a manager, bartenders, servers, barbacks, a steward, and line cooks, according to the job postings. The Ginger Man is known for its extensive beer selection, plus comfort-style pub food, including sandwiches, flatbreads, and snacks.
