A popular neighborhood watering hole is open once again after completing some major renovations.
A message sent from the owner of the place indicates that Donohue's Bar & Grill in East Watertown has reopened, with its renovations being on pretty much on schedule (it had hoped to open back up by or before St. Patrick's Day). Part of the renovations included knocking down the wall that separated the two rooms of the Bigelow Avenue spot, and setting up a horseshoe-shaped bar in the middle with tables and boots being set up along the outer walls. It appears that the outdoor patio in the back will remain in place.
Donohue's, which first opened approximately 20 years ago, is known as a local hangout that offers pub grub, American classics, beer, wine, and cocktails, and entertainment and events such as live music and art and trivia nights.
The address for Donohue's Bar & Grill is 87 Bigelow Avenue, Watertown, MA, 02472. The website for the place can be found at http://www.donohuesbar.com/
