City Winery Boston Opening This November


City Winery Boston is saddened to announce that, due to further construction delays, we have been forced to move our opening to November. We are so disappointed to have to do this again, and wish to thoroughly apologize for the inconvenience this is causing our customers, performers, and staff.

We are in the process of rescheduling and moving affected events to other venues in the area or to a later date at City Winery. We will be notifying ticketholders of the status of individual shows via email as soon as possible and will present you with your options at that time.

Again, we sincerely apologize for the inconvenience of this delay and greatly appreciate your continued patience. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact or call (617) 933-8047 and our Concierge team in Nashville will assist you.

We are very much looking forward to being open later this fall to bring you the best possible City Winery experience – we promise it will be worth the wait!

City Winery Boston’s Opening Delayed to October 16



Due to unforeseen and unavoidable construction delays, and to make sure that we are 100% able to deliver the highest possible quality experience, City Winery Boston’s opening will now be Monday, October 16th, one month later than planned.

We are in the process of rescheduling and moving events that were booked for mid-September and early October to other venues in the area or to a later date at City Winery. Ticketholders for impacted dates will be notified of the status of individual shows via email and be presented with their options as soon as possible. We apologize for any inconvenience that this may cause.

All shows on or after October 16th will go on as scheduled.

Because of the expansive size and complexities of the multi-use space, we’ve been presented with construction challenges, given the special considerations required to support best practices in winemaking and to ensure optimal comfort, sightlines, and sound quality for our concertgoers.

From City Winery’s CEO and founder, Michael Dorf: “It’s important that all aspects of the venue are perfect and we deliver an exemplary experience for our concertgoers and restaurant patrons. We hope everyone understands, and we look forward to opening our doors to Boston audiences in mid-October.”

Thank you for your patience as we finalize details, we will be in touch as soon possible. We look forward to having you join us!

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact or call (617) 933-8047.

Thru The Grapevine: Details emerging on new Boston music venue City Winery

All Cities Logo_web

As the Boston music scene focuses its attention on Friday’s arrival of Cambridge rock club Sonia, another new stage in town is not far off from its own grand opening.

City Winery, the combination music venue, restaurant, and wine bar that already has successful operations in New York, Chicago, Nashville, and elsewhere, is eyeing a summertime opening for its space at One Canal Street in the Bulfinch Triangle Historic District just outside North Station. A rep for City Winery tells Vanyaland there is no set opening date, but the venue should be operational “later in the summer — July, maybe even August.”

Last week, Universal Hub reported the Boston Licensing Board approved City Winery’s liquor license, which it bought from the closed Mass Ave Tavern at 94 Massachusetts Ave. in the Back Bay. Universal Hub has some interesting details about Boston’s City Winery: “The wine bar will actually have two dining rooms — a 300-seat area that will require reservations for watching the night’s performer and a 280-seat room where anybody can show up to eat, just not to see the show.”
