The Intermission Tavern (228 Tremont St., Boston), a bar and restaurant in Boston’s Theater District, is set to shutter, and a new spot with an equally theatrical name — the Fourth Wall — will replace it, Boston Restaurant Talk recently reported.
On May 9, the Intermission Tavern petitioned the Boston Licensing Board to transfer its common victualler license to the Fourth Wall. It’s not immediately clear whether or not that transfer has been approved yet.
According to the Licensing Board hearing notice, Derek Brady is listed as the manager for the Fourth Wall, with corporate filings indicating that Theodore Connolly is also involved. The two are also part of the ownership team behind the recently revamped Union Street Restaurant in Newton Centre. Eater has reached out to Brady and Connolly for comment but has not yet been able to reach either party.
An employee at the Intermission Tavern confirmed to Eater that the venue is closing but couldn’t provide an exact timeline, indicating that May 24 was originally supposed to be the last day, but it has been pushed back at least a month.
The Intermission Tavern opened a little over a decade ago, serving comfort food and a lot of dessert-y takes on a martini.
