North End, Boston –
Established in 1976 when Bobby Orr was kicking butt for the Bruins, The Fours is an energetic bar whose focus on sports and proximity to TD Garden brings in crowds of sports fans and concert-goers alike.
A décor largely consisting of dark wood furnishings and a collection of pennants, photos, autographed jerseys, and hockey sticks sets the background for the college types and young professionals who stop in during the off-season for mellow after-work drinks.
Once winter sets in and the season takes off, however, the action picks up as hyped-up frat boys and finance types in either Celtic green or Bruins brown and gold show up to cheer on their team and down a few pints along with their sandwiches named for athletes like Ray Bourque, Larry Bird, and Robert Parish, while a second bar upstairs offers space for the truly obsessed to celebrate their birthdays during a game.
Although the place clears out a bit as ticket holders make their way to the Garden, there’s always a skeleton crew of guys left behind to yell at the forty-eight hi-def TVs until patrons pack in again for after-event drinks.
Lively mix of sports lovers, college students, business and finance types, and concert-goers, early 20s to 30s.
Over 40 TVs tuned to sports.
Pub menu including burgers, nachos, and sandwiches named after sports legends, served daily until midnight.
Appetizers $7.95–$12.95, soups and salads $3.50–$17.95, sandwiches $7.95+, entrées $13.95–$24.95. Beer $4–$8, wine $7+, cocktails $6+.
Casual. Hats and jerseys for fans heading to the Garden, jeans and t-shirts for concert-goers, and business attire for the after-work crowd.
Any time before or after an event at the Garden, whether it’s a concert or a hockey or basketball game.
Sullivan’s Tap (168 Canal Street) is a dive sports bar with cheap beer and pool tables.
