An old-school Seaport holdout closes its doors for good this weekend ahead of further development in the neighborhood. The Whiskey Priest (150 Northern Ave., Seaport District, Boston) will shutter on Sunday, September 2, making way for a swanky residential building. This comes nearly a year after its neighbor, Atlantic Beer Garden, closed ahead of the same project.
The Whiskey Priest shared a message of thanks on its Facebook page, inviting customers out for one last weekend:
We’ve had a great run and have had some unforgettable times. We’d like to take this opportunity to thank you all for your patronage over the years and we hope you had as much fun as we did. To all the staff who have been part of the family over the years and helped make this place a home away from home, a true thank you and much Love. Please stop by this weekend and help us give this place the send off it deserves. It’s the end of an era so let’s do this right!
The Whiskey Priest has operated in the Seaport District for about eight years. Once it closes, the site will be redeveloped into a 22-story residential complex complete with retail spaces and underground parking. The Cronin Group, which was behind Whiskey Priest and Atlantic Beer Garden, is also responsible for the new project, which will reportedly open in 2019.
