Seaport Restaurant Closings: Whiskey Priest and 75 Courthouse Square

We’re really hoping this is not the new normal for restaurants in the Seaport District!

According to, 75 on Courthouse Square at 60 Seaport Boulevard has closed its doors after seven months in business. 75 on Courthouse Square was one of the Thomas Kershaw group who operates 75 property on Liberty Wharf, 75 Chestnut, the Hampshire House and the original Cheers in Beacon Hill.

Other occupants at 60 Seaport Boulevard include Tuscan Kitchen, Kings Dining and Entertainment, and the ShowPlace Icon movie theater.  Back in May, Salvatore’s closed its doors and the Boston Globe reported on the struggling Casa de Pedro.

In other Seaport restaurant news, you have one weekend left to enjoy Whiskey Priest! According to Hidden Boston on twitter, the bar will be closing its doors at the end of business hours on Sunday, September 2 to make room for a new 22-story luxury development. The restaurant next door, Atlantic Beer Garden closed back in October.

    75 courthouse square.
    BAD LOCATION! Most people didn’t know the restaurant/bar was there.

  2. Oldtimesouthie says

    The SEAPORT is over saturated with steak houses, (delfriscos, Morton’s, Ocean Prime,Smith and Wolinsky, The Pearl and another New one at liberty warf) over priced bars and generic “eateries “…your best bet down there ( in the summer) is bring your own food and sit outside by the courthouse..
