“Cheers Replica Bar has had a wonderful 20 years in the iconic Faneuil Hall Marketplace, one of America’s most cherished historic landmarks,” he shared. “I have faced, and pulled through, many kinds of downturns and upticks in the economy within the last 20 years Cheers Replica Bar at Faneuil Hall Marketplace has been in business. Sadly, the COVID-19 pandemic, combined with no assistance from our landlord (Ashkenazy Acquisition Group), has made this current challenge insurmountable.”

All the big names – Ted Danson, Rhea Perlman, Kristie Alley, and Woody Harrelson, took home 28 of the show’s 117 Emmy nominations before wrapping its eleventh season in 1993.
