It looks like a North End bar that was around for a long time may have shut down for good.
NorthEndWaterfront.com is reporting what Adam Castiglioni of the Boston Hospitality and Tourism Industry Blog) told us last week, that Four Winds on Commercial Street is closed. Both Adam and another source told us that the bar appears to have been shuttered for at least a few weeks, and while its exact status is not known, NorthEndWaterfront.com says that the building is going to be sold, so the future of the place does seem to be in doubt.
Four Winds first opened in the late 1960s, according to its Facebook page; the place was a sports bar and restaurant that also had space for functions upstairs.
The address for Four Winds was 266 Commercial Street, Boston, MA, 02109.
