Welcome Back: The Dorchester Pub

Back in 2018, The Dot Tavern closed its doors.  Dorchester resident and developer Doug George bought the building that houses the old school bar on the ground level and completely renovated the building.  One of George’s goals was to find a restaurant/bar operator to take over the bar.  Well, just a few weeks ago, The Dot Tavern reopened! Although the pool tables are gone, and the interior has been updated, it still has a very old-school “dive bar” feel.  For now, they will be open Friday – Sunday. Stop by!
