Harvard Square's nightlife might be on the upswing, but Tommy Doyle's pub will close on December 22, according to their website and Twitter. "We had a wonderful run and met so many friends along the way," they write.
Seems like the shutter had been in the works for a while; they write that they wanted to inform staff (and sad regulars) about the closure before going public. But all is not lost. They write that they're looking for "new locations and opportunities."
The pub opened in 2002 and also has branches in Kendall Square and Hyannis.
