The City of Boston recently sorted out the seating capacity issue at Maverick’s and extended the business’s liquor license to 1 a.m. Last week there was more good news for the owners of the popular restaurant, bar and music venue just outside Maverick Square.
Maverick’s, formerly known as Maverick Marketplace Cafe at 154 Maverick St., has been awarded a 1 a.m. Entertainment License from the City of Boston.
“With the extension of our entertainment license until 1 a.m., we’re now able to keep the good times going all the way to close,” said owner John Tyler.
Having Maverick’s music and entertainment go until 1 a.m. is something that the community’s made clear they’ve wanted for a while now.
“It’s really been a game-changer for us and the feel of the bar,” said owner Dan Lyons. “While it was great to get our hours of service increased until 1a.m., there was still something missing due to the fact that we had to stop the music at 11 p.m.”
Lyons explained that the night would still start to wind down shortly after the music stopped at 11 p.m. With no music Lyons said patrons would start to leave even though Maverick’s liquor license was until 1 a.m.
“However, thanks to the support from our community, especially those who took time out of their busy schedules to come support us at the Maverick Central Neighborhood Association and abutters meetings, we’re now able to keep rocking until 1a.m.”, said Lyons.
Lyons and Tyler said In the future you can expect to see more events including a Holiday Party and New Years Eve Party.
“Maverick’s Halloween Spooktacular event was a huge success, co-hosted by La Tia’s Smoke Shop, which included a Karaoke contest, costume contest, tarot card readings, glassblowing and artwork from local artists,” said Tyler. “It’s important to note that we are still open in the morning and throughout the day to service customers who are here for the other businesses in the building or those who may be working at a table in the restaurant.”
Currently, Maverick’s is open most days from 8 a.m. through 1 a.m.
“To everyone who helped get this project across the finish line, we can’t thank you enough,” said Lyons. “With these new improvements the shackles are now off and I believe we can finally reach our full potential, not only as a restaurant, but also as an entertainment venue here in East Boston, helping to further our great and unique neighborhood as a destination for amazing food, drinks and live entertainment.”
