Another Boston restaurant has announced its impending closure: The Living Room (101 Atlantic Ave.) shutters permanently on Saturday, January 19, after 15 years in business. The restaurant and lounge, which abuts Christopher Columbus Park and overlooks Long Wharf, shared the news on Facebook, thanking staff and patrons for their support over the years.
“It is with a heavy heart that we announce that this will be our final week here at The Living Room due to leasing problems,” the message read. “Please come by this week and toast to the end of an era.”
The couch-filled restaurant and nightclub offered food until midnight and dancing until 2 a.m. several nights a week, featuring a variety of DJs. On other nights, the Living Room hosted trivia, board game gatherings, and other events.
The Living Room joins quite a few other restaurants that have closed down in the last few weeks. In Back Bay, the 40-year-old fine-dining staple L’Espalier shuttered on December 31 in conjunction with the end of its lease, with Erbaluce in Bay Village and Shepard in Cambridge closing at the same time. Griddler’s Burgers & Dogs recently closed down on Boylston Street, and at Faneuil Hall, the famed Durgin-Park closed on January 12 after nearly 200 years in business.
