A&B Burgers Moving to Beverly: Salem’s popular burger and beer restaurant is packing up and moving to the former home of Bell Market in downtown Beverly. In a Facebook post, owners Amy Butler and Thomas Holland announced that they will be moving A&B Burgers to Beverly due to “challenges with their current location” in Salem. Some of the challenges they addressed included parking issues and not having a big enough dining room and bar to accommodate all their guests on a busy night. With the move, the owners have also started a Kickstarter campaign to help with the funding. With the funds from the kickstarter, the owners disccussed plans of adding “a 20-seat bar, booths and high tops along the walls and tables up along Cabot Street, a 24 tap beer system and two gorgeous, 16-foot garage-style doors that will open from floor to ceiling creating the only indoor-outdoor bistro-style seating on Cabot Street.” Their goal is to reach $60,000 by March, 15th. A&B plans to move this summer.
