New chapter for the nOg

Made it to the great Somerville pub Tir na nOg Saturday before the place vacates its 366A Somerville Ave. location. Had a couple pints of Guinness, took a good look around and generally soaked up the vibe that I’ve enjoyed over the past 10 years. The nOg has been like a second (or even first) living room for many inhabitants of the Union Square neighborhood. I couldn’t be too sad, though. Owner Robert Elliott is opening up a new nOg in another location in Union Square, reportedly this summer. It can be scary when a beloved neighborhood watering hole changes so drastically, but I’m going to trust in Robert and the rest of the nOg staff to pick up exactly where they left off on March 31st…

    The nOg was a bit too far from ready public transportation to become a regular hangout of mine, but I always enjoyed it the few times I did visit. That tiny space had a lot of charm. I sincerely hope they can revive the amazing roof deck at their new space (the old Union Square Bistro); that by itself would be reason to endure a couple of bus rides to get there.
