Turns out Boston may not be the best place for a breastaurant: Tilted Kilt, the Scottish-themed bar and restaurant where waitstaff saunter from table to table in plaid miniskirts and crop tops, has closed down its location in the Fenway neighborhood, just under a year after landing there in the first place. The closure is permanent, a rep confirms.
Tilted Kilt is a Vegas-based sports bar chain, often likened to Hooters with a Scottish flare: skimpiness served alongside shepherd’s pie and hamburgers. The self-dubbed “Best Looking Sports Pub You’ve Ever Seen” opened in February 2017 at 96 Brookline Ave., the former Copperfield’s space.
Now, its departure from the neighborhood leaves Massachusetts with one lonely location out in Billerica. Tilted Kilt’s foray into the Boston area began back in 2012, when a proposed Quincy location received backlash from a nearby church and plans changed. After some bouncing around, the chain landed the lease in Fenway in 2015.
Fenway’s Tilted Kilt served a Boston-themed special, the “Wicked Boston Burger,” alongside varied pub fare, including flatbreads, wings, pastas, and more. The restaurant also served 30 beers on tap, plus cocktails and wine.
