A new restaurant and bar is set to open near Fenway Park inside the Marriott Residence Inn currently under construction on Brookline Avenue.
Representatives for Bar Louie appeared before the Boston Licensing Board last Wednesday for approval to purchase the liquor license of East Boston’s Victory Pub, which has closed.
The restaurant, which operates a location at Patriot Place in Foxborough, plans to open on the first floor of the Marriott Residence Inn being built at 121 Brookline Ave.
The restaurant will be 5,809 square feet, including a dining room, bar area, lounge, kitchen, offices and bathrooms, and aims to offer a different environment than many of the surrounding eateries.
“It offers the residents and visitors to the area a different experience,” Joseph H. Devlin, the attorney representing the restaurant told the licensing board. “There are a lot of sports bars in the area…this has more of a neighborhood feel,”
The board approved the transfer of the license at its Thursday meeting.
