7 of the best things to do in Camden, Maine

3. The Drouthy Bear

Perched on Camden’s main drag, The Drouthy Bear is the epitome of a cosy, atmospheric and family-run neighbourhood pub. Opened by a Scottish expat and his wife, a Camden local, almost a decade ago, this popular watering hole offers an impressive drinks menu including several craft beers, exotic cocktails, and an extensive whiskey and scotch collection – testament to its co-owner, Andrew’s, Scottish roots. Classic board and card games ensure patrons are never short of entertainment, while a roaring fireplace offers a warm and inviting sanctuary during the winter months and there’s a pretty outdoor patio area for when the weather’s kinder. Kids are welcome and dogs can be kept in the outside areas during the warmer months (service dogs year round).
