According to Universal Hub, South Boston Candlepins, 543 East Broadway, has been granted an extra hour for closing time for both bowling and drinking from 11pm. to 12am. The City of Boston’s Licensing Board voted on Thursday to approve the request.
Manager John Tunney met with the Licensing Board virtually on Wednesday and asked for a closing time of 1am but explained that he won’t stay open until 1am most nights – more like midnight.
An aide from City Councilor Ed Flynn’s office did state that Flynn himself and local residents were against the 1am closing time but could warm up to 12am closing time.
Over in Dorchester, Boston Bowl on Morrissey Boulevard is open until 2 a.m. on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays. (At one time, Boston Bowl offered 24-hour bowling…you know for those middle-of-the-night bowlers.)
