The Tap Brewing Company is located in the heart of downtown Haverhill. What makes this spot unique is the fact that it has a back deck seating with a fantastic view of the river, which is perfect for warm summer months. Being a microbrewery, the Tap brews all of its own beer in house – each with a fun and unique name. We highly recommend the Sassy Rabbit, among others.
The Peddler’s Daughter
This little spot – with the traditional charm of a cozy pub you’d expect to find in Ireland – is conveniently located in the building right next door to us here at Primary Design. Their menu is known for its classic Irish fare, offering choices such as a scotch egg, as well as a corned beef sandwich. The selection of beer is also quite a delight, and the Celtic music truly adds to the atmosphere. A fun place to meet with friends, watch a game, or visit on St. Patrick’s Day!
The Barking Dog Ale House
The Barking Dog is a great addition to the restaurant district, and has a vast menu chock filled with beer, cocktail and wine options, and plenty of tasty food. With 40 draft lines as well as a plethora of rare bottled brews, the Barking Dog has beer connoisseurs coming back again and again. Set in an old bank building, the historic charisma of Haverhill combined with the bustling atmosphere is sure to satisfy.
A local favorite, Han’s is known for its cocktails and exotic drinks. It has a sports bar feel, but serves Chinese cuisine. The bartender, Tony, is a true mixologist who makes a mai-tai second to none. On weekend nights it can get very busy, so heading down a bit early for a bite to eat isn’t a bad idea to beat the crowds!
Essex Street Grille
This cozy little gem located on Essex Street, right in the building with the Essex Street Gateway Mural. While Essex Street Grille is known for its eclectic dinner menu, it also has expertly crafted cocktails, fine wines and aperitifs. This is a great destination if you’re looking for more intimate, sit-down setting.
