A classic bar, The Four’s is considered by some the gold standard of city sports bars. It is located in Celtics and Bruins territory, but will still be a welcome spot for any football games. Go there at any time, especially before or after a Celtics or Bruins game at nearby TD Garden, and you’ll find a crowd. The Four’s has about 50 televisions, all 42 inches or bigger, and it has a projector screen. The bar also features 10 beers on tap.
