Dive bars in the neighborhood are slowly fading into the past.  Local blue-collar watering holes like the Quencher, The Corner Tavern, and more have closed in the last decade. So why not buy a dive bar in the neighborhood and keep it just that…a dive bar.

Joyce Lebedew Real Estate announced on Instagram early this week (in a way that only the very fashionable Joyce can) The Connection (formerly the Sports Connection), located at 566 Dorchester Ave in Andrew Square, is coming soon to the market.

Listing includes the real estate offering excellent development opportunity, the business, which includes a full kitchen and a 2 AM fully transferable liquor license!

So if owning a dive bar is a dream of yours, reach out to Joyce at [email protected]  or via her cell at 617-594-1449.

    In the early 50s I would take the street car! to Broadway Station and then shine shoes in all the taverns along Broadway back to Perkin Sq. It was a profitable endeavor for a boy of 12. To this day, the odor of those storied dives lingers in memory.

    Don’t forget the old K STREET TAP at 4th and K. The great watering hole for the Firemen AFTER their shift but some frequented it during work hours. Later it was PETE’S PUB where JUMPING JACK FLASH would hold court every night and weekends. A real character. He was the owner!!!!!!!!
