After nearly closing for good, the Irish Social Club of Boston rose from the ashes, and is now a successful club with a growing membership hosting regular events.
The Irish Social Club of Boston now has a permanent liquor license, essentially restoring the club to its legal capabilites as it was before April 2011's abrupt and brief closing of the club. "Wanted to let you know that Mary Maloney and Kathie Sullivan just picked up the permanent liquor license for the Irish Social Club a few minutes ago in Boston City Hall," wrote Mary Mulvey Jacobson, the club's corresponding secretary. "It is a 7-day all alcoholic license with a 1 a.m. closing, all out by 1:30 am. This license, coupled with the recently received entertainment license completes our work on restoring the licenses.

The Club now needs to get approval from the Alcoholic Beverages Control Commission and then the license will be restored.

Officially, Patrick signed into law House Bill 4294 - "An Act relative to a liquor license for the Irish Social Club, Inc, in the City of Boston." The legislation was …
