The Flamingo Is Opening in the Former Four Winds Space in Boston's North End

A new dining and drinking spot is replacing a now-closed bar in the North End of Boston, and some familiar names are behind the place.

According to a licensing board hearing page within the city's website, The Flamingo it planning to open in the space on Commercial Street that had been home to Four Winds Bar & Grill, with a message sent to us indicating that the people behind it are Jairo Dominguez (Publico, Backyard Betty's, Casa Cana, Madre, Bar Mercato, The Grande/Rock & Rye), Tyrone Di Stasi (The Grande/Rock & Rye), and Richard Sullivan II (R.F. O'Sullivan's). No specifics have been given on the proposed restaurant and bar as of yet, so keep checking back for updates.

Four Winds closed in the fall of 2019 after being in business since the late 1960s.

The address for The Flamingo is 266 Commercial Street, Boston, MA, 02109.

[June 1 update: The Facebook page for The Flamingo says that it will be "A vibe bar gone glam by way of retro Miami Beach of 70's - 90's....Serving Miami inspired Latin bar food and adult beverages."]

[June 9 update: A message sent to us indicates that The Flamingo is now open, with a tweet from @ConciergeBoston also mentioning this.]
