We need to be organized, here is an official and proper petition.

"Last week the Improper Bostonian was served a notice stating that they would no longer be allowed to harbor live entertainment or serve any alcohol past 10:30 p.m.

This is due to a petition signed by only 5 neighbors who complain that the establishment is too loud, and that the TOWN MUNICIPAL parking lot is out of control at 1:00.

These neighbors have lived in Dennisport for only a few short years, while the IMPROPER BOSTONIAN has stood strong for over 40.

Not only will this terrible decision affect the 15-25 employees staffed every year, but it will effect the livelihood of all of the musicians who depend on their weekly shows over the summer season.

If you think that the economy is bad now, imagine what will happen when the tourists begin to lose their favorite nightlife and entertainment spots.

If we allow this to happen to us at the Improper, it will only be a matter of time before we have no where to go.

The Improper Bostonian is a staple for tourists in the summer season that bring a much needed monitary flow to our community. Please Help us by just becoming a fan. This page will serve as a cyber petition that we can use in Town Hall meetings to defend our beloved IMPROPER!

The Improper is legendary for having some of the best entertainment on cape, supporting local acts such as ROOTS DOWN BELOW, HIGHLY SUSPECT, SHANGO AXE, JO AND CO, and JIM PLUNKETT just to name a few.

stay tuned for updates on fundraising shows, town hall meetings, and other oppurtunities to fight back.


Thank you

    5 years ago Comments: The Improper Bostonian has given my friends and especially myself many a fun evening. They always made sure (even before any of these legal things) to make the patrons respect the noise level and their general demeanor when outside the establishment. Making them stop serving liquor will cripple the business, and this is unjust, especially after the money put into soundproofing the building and the extra money put towards outside security. Please don't take away my / a lot of others' favorite bar.
