When you think of Newburyport, Massachusetts, you think of Michael’s Harborside. With waterfront views, summer entertainment, and a family friendly dining experience, Michael’s is a must-visit location on the North Shore for lobsters and a view that can’t be beat.

Michael’s Harborside is thrilled to announce the grand opening of their new outdoor bar “The Landing,” with over 16 seats overlooking the Merrimack River. From frozen drinks to creative cocktails to all your favorite draft beers, “The Landing” offers the best bar experience alongside a meal you can order with a view that comes complimentary. Sit back and enjoy off-the-hook dockside dining like seafood specialties, light fare, or pub food favorites. Michael’s will have live entertainment every Friday night and Sunday afternoon from some of the area’s best bands, taking al fresco to the next level by serving life into one long weekend with a great crowd in a casual atmosphere.

“We are thrilled to see the final stages of the bar coming together prior to the Memorial Day weekend” said Tina Santoro-Smith Marketing Director for Newburyport Development. “We will be serving signature cocktails with a great view and new summer menu”. “These seats are going to be the must have spots for the summer 2012 and beyond.

“During our shoulder season, we review and sit as a group to discuss what guests are looking for and how we can expand on their experience at Michael’s. Our guests wanted more seating to look at the magnificent view and quicker turn time on cocktail service and that is how the bar evolved,” said Matt Kirk, General Manager at Michael’s Harborside. “We listen to our guest’s feedback to increase our brand position as the best waterfront dining destination on the North Shore.

Guests will see the bar from the parking lot and coming over the bridge. It is a dining experience not to be missed. For further information visit us at
