A cocktail bar named Magnus on Water (website, facebook, instagram, twitter) is under construction in Biddeford. Magnus will be headlined by Elda bartender Brian Catapang and the restaurant’s former GM Brittany Saliwanchik, in partnership with Julia Russell and Carmen Harris. Magnus on Water will draw its menu inspiration from locally foraged-ingredients.
The bar will be located in the former Lacava space at 12 Water Street adjacent to Liberty Park, and the team hopes to open the 30-seat establishment sometime this Summer. Seasonal outdoor seating will also be available for private events.
Magnus is named for Albertus Magnus, a 13th Century alchemist and Catholic saint, thought of as one of the “greatest German philosopher and theologian of the Middle Ages”.
The Magnus team is working with Might & Main on branding and graphic design.
