Green Briar, iconic Brighton pub, to pour its last pint May 6

An iconic Irish venue in Brighton Center that has been the longtime scene of traditional Irish music for four decades will close its doors this month.
The Green Briar, located on Washington Street in Brighton Center, will draw its last pint on Monday, May 6. The restaurant/pub has been the flagship of the sprawling Briar Group since 1989.
In an online posting, the company said:
“Last Call- This was a difficult and sad decision to make. We want to recognize and express sincere appreciation for our staff - some have been with us since the very beginning. Their hard work and dedication to providing warm hospitality was what made the Green Briar so special.
We have met with the team regarding the closing date and our priority is to help each employee transfer jobs. To our guests, thank you. We hope to see you and say good-bye before our last day of service.
- The O’Connor Family.”
