Cheers At Boston's Faneuil Hall Marketplace To Close Permanently

BOSTON (CBS) -- After two decades in business, Cheers at Boston's Faneuil Hall Marketplace is closing for good at the end of the month. CEO Markus Ripperger confirmed the news to WBZ-TV Tuesday.

The Faneuil Hall bar and restaurant is a replica of the bar setting on the "Cheers" TV show. The Bull & Finch Pub on Beacon Street inspired the iconic series and is now known as Cheers Beacon Hill, which will remain open.

Ripperger said the coronavirus pandemic and problems with the Marketplace's landlord were factors in the decision to close.
