CANARY SQ.—The Alchemist Restaurant & Lounge at 435 S. Huntington Ave. appears poised to change hands.

At its March 17 meeting, the Jamaica Plain Business and Professional Association heard a presentation to transfer the bar’s liquor license from the current owners to a group called JP Partners, which includes JP resident Michael Moxley.

At the March 23 meeting of the Jamaica Plain Neighborhood Council, JPNC member Michael Reiskind, who heads the council’s Public Service Committee, said the committee will consider the transfer proposal at its April 6 meeting. [See JP Agenda.]

Neither Moxley—who co-owns Allston bar Common Ground and the Coda Bar and Kitchen in the Back Bay—nor the Alchemist’s current owners, Lyndon Fuller and Relena Erskine, returned Gazette phone calls requesting comment.
