Phoenix Landing Owner Plans to Take Over Hit Wicket Space

The Inman Square cricket-themed bar and restaurant closed late this winter.

After a March shutter that was supposed to be temporary, Hit Wicket closed for good in late April. The cricket-themed restaurant (that's the sport, not the insect) was almost two years old. Now, it appears that Kevin Treanor — a co-owner of Phoenix Landing, The Merchant, and a few other establishments — plans to take over the space, according to the agenda for an August 11 Cambridge license commission hearing.

Operating under the business name Golden Street, Inc. — or Goden Street, Inc., as it's spelled in Massachusetts' corporate filings database — Treanor is seeking to transfer Hit Wicket's full liquor license and alter the 72-seat premises. He's applying for permission to operate from 11 a.m. to 1 a.m. Sunday through Wednesday and 11 a.m. to 2 a.m. Thursday through Saturday. Entertainment would consist solely of single live entertainers or the radio, and there will be eight televisions.

In other Cambridge news, the same agenda indicates that Michael Scelfo is returning to the board to take another stab at getting the appropriate permissions to move ahead with Waypoint, a 145-seat restaurant at 1030 Massachusetts Ave. Nearby residents attended a May hearing to object to his original proposal. He's applying for a full liquor license and permission to stay open until 1 a.m. nightly.
