Stadium will close after business this Sunday, Aug. 30, and Iron Furnace will open Tuesday, Sept. 8 at 4 p.m., the owners said via a press release. In addition to cosmetic improvements, there will be a new menu of "creative pub food," as well as a broader selection of craft beers and cocktails.
"With summer winding down, this is an opportune time for us to spruce the place up, move on from the Stadium brand, and be ready to go before the Patriots’ home opener on September 10th," the owners said in a statement.
Driscoll and O'Sullivan previously owned and operated The Crossing Bar in Mission Hill. They purchased Stadium at 1495 Hancock St. from the Mayo Group, which closed down two other locations of the brand earlier this year.
"We’re committed to contributing to the short and long-term rejuvenation of Quincy Center," the owners said. The new name, Iron Furnace, is in homage to the city's history: The first commercial blast iron furnace was built on Crescent Street in 1645; the site was added to the National Register of historic Places in 1977, the release indicates.
When Iron Furnace opens, like Stadium, it will be a place to watch sports and host private events, with 34 high-definition TVs and function rooms for 20 - 150 guests. Expect karaoke, paint nights, sports trivia, and live comedy, DJs, and music.
Initially, it will be open for dinner seven days a week from 4 - 10 p.m. (11 p.m. on Thursday - Saturday), with lunch available 11 a.m. - 4 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday. The bar will be open til 1 a.m. Monday - Saturday. Additional lunch hours will be added in the future.
Iron Furnace hasn't launched a website yet, but keep an eye on Stadium's Facebook page for updates during the anticipated 10 days of renovation.
UPDATE, 9/8/15: Iron Furnace's opening has been pushed to tomorrow (September 9) at 4 p.m.
