At the corner of Stuart Street and Tremont Street, in 2013 there was a Panera's Bread which could still be there today, 2016.

In the 1970s to the early 1980s, there was a barroom/strip joint which was part of the Combat Zone at Stuart and Tremont Street. It was a unique location in the Combat Zone as it was some 2 blocks away from the main area of what was called the Combat Zone. I am trying to recall the name of this the Combat Zone barroom.
Long time memory versus short time memory is funny as you get older. I can not recall all of what i did yesterday, but i have a video memory of what that Stuart/Tremont Street barroom in the 70s looked like inside like it was this morning i went in. There was also a barroom on the second floor but they did not advertise on the outside. But i can not recall the name of the business.
