THE PLACE: The name alone intrigued me: T. Boyle’s Tavern. It’s been a while since a pub-style bar has opened in the area.
I love the look and feel of a bar that makes you think of “Cheers” — “where everybody knows your name.” But it’s not easy to find one that can keep up with the times and avoid turning into a dive.
Troy Boyle, aka T. Boyle, opened the Tavern on Halloween night last year with the idea of turning this former Latin club back to a bar. Boyle brings a lot of bar and contracting experience to the renovated space. The former La Boom club was mostly destroyed inside by a fire.
The new bar offers a great place to catch games on flatscreens, relax with a game of pool or shuffleboard, or just enjoy a nice pint of some tasty ale.
