Back in March, I shared that the Boston gay bar, The Eagle, had officially closed. If you happened to walk by the space last week you would’ve seen it was being cleared out. It appears that a handsome, young couple have decided to reopen the space as a bar.
Fortunate timing allowed me a brief meeting outside the bar with the couple who were excited about reopening the space as a bar. I was not able to get details, but they indicated they are targeting an opening for early 2022.
My guess is the space will not reopen as a gay bar but the location makes it an ideal space. The loss of bars like Stella, Tremont 647 and Sister Sorel presents an opportunity for this space to become an ‘honorary’ gay bar and it is my hope that the newly reimagined space becomes a favorite destination for our community – time will tell. Stay tuned.
