When visiting Salem, we had heard the Witch's Brew was a fun place for drinks. The bartenders were super friendly and the drinks were great! The food looked good too, but we didn't try any this visit. Definitely recommend this place.

We were walking back to our hotel (Salem Waterfront) from House of Seven Gables. The name and the Hocus Pocus art on the window seemed inviting to tourists, so we decided to stop by here for a quick bite, instead of the hotel restaurant. The...More
