Blyth and Burrows Opens Today

Blyth & Burrows (website, facebook, instagram, twitter), a multifaceted cocktail bar located at 26 Exchange Street, is scheduled to open today at 4pm. The bar is owned by Josh Miranda.

Blyth & Burrows held a media preview earlier this week. You can more about the bar, its menu and the layout of its space in articles by The Blueberry Files, Peter Peter Portland Eater, and Urban Eye.

Here’s an excerpt from TBF’s article,

When you first enter off Exchange St., you’re in the showiest part of the space, complete with a library ladder to access top shelf bottles. The bar staff is made up of Sur Lie and EVO alums, so expect a similar style bar menu, with specialty cocktails involving lesser known ingredients like Carpano Antica and housemade ingredients like a spruce tip cordial.

The name is a reference to Captain Samuel Blyth from the HMS Boxer and Lieutenant William Burrows of the USS Enterprise who were buried in the Eastern Cemetery and died during an naval battle between their ships in Casco Bay in 1813.
