Last Call Coming Soon: The Drinking Fountain is Closing

One of Jamaica Plain's better-known watering holes, The Drinking Fountain, will be closing its doors, although the last call date is unknown. An employee of the dive bar located at 3250 Washington St. told Jamaica Plain News that the establishment will be closing, but did not know when, nor was she aware of whether there would be a final celebration for the bar. When asked about what would happen to the wooden bear statues outside of the restaurant, the employee said it's likely the current owner would be taking possession of them. Boston Restaurant Talk originally posted about the closing (with a hat tip to Patrick Maguire of Maguire Promotions & Hospitality Consulting).

Good Cheer at The Drinking Fountain
