Portland resident Joshua Miranda plans to open a new cocktail bar called Proper Charlie’s in the Old Port in November.

The bar will be located at 26 Exchange St., once the location of Lovell Designs.

In a letter filed with his liquor license application, Miranda said he wants “to attract a more mature clientele back to the Old Port,” one that appreciates high-end and local liquors, as well as “contemporary techniques with a classic cocktail foundation in a chic, cosmopolitan atmosphere.”

According to a sample menu filed with the application, Proper Charlie’s cocktails will cost in the $10-13 range and have clever retro names, such as “The Tennessee Williams,” “Murder on the Orient Express,” “Tequila Mockingbird” and “Roman Holiday.”

The kitchen will serve bites such as smoked cod Scotch eggs and South Indian spiced beef.

Proper Charlie’s will be open from 4 p.m. to 1 a.m. daily; the kitchen will be open until midnight.
