47 Central

47 Central was a place where you could be yourself, be with friends, meet people, help each other and have fun. In 2007 it was named the "Best Gay and Lesbian bar on Boston’s North Shore” by WBZ. In 2004 the Lynn Item described George Chakoutis as a “phenomenon of fundraising” due to the many benefits held at the bar.

The address, 47 Central Ave, was the home to a series of LGBTQ+ bars beginning in 1999:
- The Pub at 47 Central operated by George Chakoutis and Keith Williams
- The Pub at 47 Central operated by William Mahoney
- Cirque at 47 Central operated by William Mahoney
- Pub 47 Central operated by George Chakoutis, which closed in 2015
