Area sports-related businesses continue to struggle due to COVID-19

USA Today


Article Summary:

You might not think of restaurants as a sports-related business, but for many in the neighborhood of TD Garden, the business cycle and even existence of some depend very much on the success of local professional team sports like the Boston Bruins and Celtics.

Given sports-themed bars and restaurants in the vicinity have made their business model as more of a place to meet and watch or congregate after a game, turning to curbside pick-up or delivery hasn’t produced much business. We were fortunate that we had a really good lunch business for a lot of years and a weekend business, as a lot of government agencies used to be located in that area of Boston because the rent was cheaper.

“Any business will be affected immensely if it goes on for five or six months, absolutely, I don’t care what business you are. Every business is holding their breath. I don’t know if the whole season will end for AAU, but it’s going to be close if something doesn’t change pretty soon.”

Barros is not alone in that regard, either.
