Boston Residents React to Replacement of Classic Fenway Bar by Tilted Kilt, the ‘Scottish Hooters’

A 50-year-old Fenway institution will soon fold to make room for a location of Tilted Kilt

Copperfield’s Bar and Down Under Pub, a decades-old bar and live music venue near Boston’s Fenway Park, looks like it will soon be replaced by Tilted Kilt, a chain of restaurants originating from Las Vegas which has more than once been called the “Scottish Hooters.”

In case you’re wondering why that is, you only need to take a look at the restaurant’s promotional materials, and of course, uniforms.

According to Boston Restaurant Talk, Tilted Kilt will be moving into the Copperfield’s space after it closes in the fall.

Tilted Kilt itself has yet to issue a formal announcement of its takeover, but a number of sources have pointed to the Copperfield as the chosen location.

So far, a number of local residents have been less than thrilled to find out that a Fenway staple will be absorbed by the Kilt.

In 2012, a Baptist pastor successfully stopped the opening of a Tilted Kilt location in nearby Quincy, Massachusetts, not far from his church, St. John the Baptist.
