Fun Options for Cocktails in Andover
Downtown hotspots make the list for fun cocktails in Andover.
Tucked inside Andover Village Square, Bueno Malo serves up delicious Craft Cocktails. And the bar boasts 80-plus types of tequila. So pick one and order a Bueno Malo Margarita — Tequila, Grapefruit, Mexican Soda, Lemon, Lime, and Agave. Salt optional. Served with an edible orchid adorning your glass.
Smack-dab in the middle of Downtown Andover, Privé Lounge (shown above) is a boutique-style lounge brought to you by the owners of La Fina Steakhouse. Privé means private. And it feels that way, with its dark walls and low lights. Slide into one of the comfy Art-Deco banquettes. And enjoy elevated cocktails and shareable plates, like Shrimp Tempura and Lamb Lollipops, with friends.
In warmer weather, Privé’s front wall of windows glide open. And you can step out of the lounge and into the night air. Take a seat, and relax with a refreshing cocktail on the patio, perched above the hustle-and-bustle of Main Street.
Tucked away on Andover’s Essex Street, between the new Greek restaurant Daxi and Sauce, is the craft-cocktail bar 15sx. Its drink menu features creative cocktails with creative names. And it changes frequently. So if you like variety, this is your bar. Check out The Extraordinary Gentleman Cocktail below.
Almost hidden behind the back of Old Town Hall, is 34 Park, offering a fresh take on Modern Italian. Sit at the sleek marble bar and sip on a Spicy & Blue Cocktail. A delicious mixture of Ghost Tequila, Lemonade, Blueberry Syrup & Lemon Twist!
Dakota Bar at Smythe & Dove Steak
Smythe & Dove Steak is located in Andover Village Square in what looks like a historic barn. Step inside to an urban vibe and belly up to the first-floor Dakota Bar for a cocktail. Then head up stairs for dinner for a Smythe & Dove Steak burger. And a side of parmesan arugula fries, with whiskey onion butter and demi-glace.
