BOSTON, Massachusetts — This story first appeared on Boston Restaurant Talk.
A replica of a bar that was the focal point of a beloved sitcom is shutting down for good.
According to a source, Cheers at Faneuil Hall Marketplace is closing permanently after 20 years in business, with a press release indicating that the last day for the bar will be August 30. The release mentions that the COVID-19 pandemic played into the decision, while the lack of help from the landlord made the "current challenge insurmountable," according to owner Tom Kershaw.
The Faneuil Hall location of Cheers is a recreation of the bar shown on the set of Cheers, a TV show that ran from 1982 to 1993.
The original Cheers/Bull & Finch Pub, which is located on Beacon Street, will remain in operation.
The address for the Faneuil Hall location of Cheers is 1 S Market Street, Boston, MA, 02109. Its website can be found here.
