More than a year after police say a worker fatally stabbed a Marine veteran outside the establishment, the owners of a once-famous Boston bar intend to reopen under a new name.
The owners of the Sons of Boston on Union Street were granted a name change on Thursday by the Boston licensing board.
Though it’s uncertain when the bar will reopen, owners intend to rename it The Loyal Nine.
According to Suffolk District Attorney Kevin Hayden, Alvaro Larramma stabbed 23-year-old Daniel Martinez in the chest as he was working as a bouncer at Sons of Boston on the evening of March 19, 2022.
Martinez was taken by ambulance to Massachusetts General Hospital, where doctors declared him dead.
Since then, Larramma has been charged with murder in connection with Martinez’s passing. Charges against him also result from an assault of a patron of a pub on March 6.
Martinez, a native of Chicago, was in town for St. Patrick’s Day to visit friends.
The licensing board unanimously decided to suspend the Sons of Boston’s liquor license indefinitely in April following the stabbing.
Later, Martinez’s family made plans to file a lawsuit against the bar.
