Popular Toby Keith Restaurant Abruptly Closes Doors In Foxboro
The I Love This Bar & Grill was a staple for country music and New England Patriots Fans.
It "Ain't Been Much Fun" for fans of Toby Keith's I Love This Bar & Grill. The Foxboro, MA location at Patriot Place has closed this week. According to Boston Magazine, a note was attached to the front door stating "It is with our deepest regret that Toby Keith’s doors will remain closed. To our many regular guests we are very grateful for the support you have given us over the past eight years.” From our staff to our management we thank you again, as always proceed to party!”
Is high rent the issue? According to an article in Boston Globe, they say the closure comes after rising rents thanks to its “greedy” landlords. Patriot Place, the shopping and dining plaza adjacent to Gillette Stadium, is owned by the Kraft Group.
Boston Magazine also reported that a 2016 study found that more people were arrested for drunk driving in Massachusetts after having their last drink there than at any other venue in the state.
