The popular sports bar announced on Monday, August 31, it would be closing down after more than 40 years.
Yet another beloved Boston spot is closing down. First, it was Cape Cod’s famous The Lobster Claw, then Cheers at Faneuil Hall, and now The Fours Boston. The famous sports bar announced on Monday, August 31, it would be closing its doors permanently after 44 years of unforgettable memories.
The Fours Boston team shared a heartfelt note on its social media channels announcing the bitter news:
“It is with heavy hearts that we announce the permanent closure of The Fours Boston as of Monday, August 31st,” reads the message.”We extend our sincerest thanks to all of you, our loyal customers, who have supported us for so many years. You have made The Fours such a treasured place and we are forever grateful for the wonderful memories we have made together.”
“To the TD Garden, Celtics and Bruins staff, we especially thank you for your loyalty and support. You became more than customers to us over the years. You are our friends and family,” it continues. “The Fours was more than a place of work for many of us. It became a second home. And we became each other’s family.”

Just down the street from TD Garden, Fours Boston has served many a Bruins and Celtics fan throughout the last four decades. Decorated with team photographs and framed jerseys from wall to wall, its menu was an ode to Boston’s most famous athletes with options such as the “Bobby Orr,” charbroiled steak tips and melted cheese on a braided roll or the “Larry Bird,” a grilled chicken pesto panini.
Although management didn’t state their reason for closing, the bar had opened earlier in the summer for takeout, delivery and patio dining in June and was struggling to keep business up since all games were canceled in March.
While their Norwell and Quincy locations remain open, the closure of their TD Garden marks the end of an era in the Boston sports bar scene.
