Part four of my ode to Baltimore brings us to my favorite (or highly recommended) spots to grab a drink. Baltimore is a blue collar town but it has an array of places to sip and see , from fancy to divey, depending on your mood.
The Brewer’s Art– In the artsy Mt. Vernon area, this was a favorite of mine. The upstairs is the upscale fancy side and the basement is the popular hipster divvy side. I was more a fan of the basement but loved the garlic fries of the upstairs.
Phaze 10– You like soul food? You like live jazz/neo-soul music? Check it out. It’s hidden away not too far from the Baltimore Symphony but well worth the trip for a down home, cool vibe.
Red Maple- I have had many a night here in my younger days. It’s trendy, sexy, and classy with a cool back patio. I fondly recall drinking many a French martini here.
Pub Dog– I am not a huge beer drinker at ALL. But if I had to drink a beer it’d be here. They have great flavors (like raspberry) and the prices are very right at this Federal Hill spot. Plus I love, love, love the pizza here. I would come back just for this place.
If I’m missing something please let me know. I’d love to add to my list when I go back for visits! Also check out my other lists for more great places to drank, eat and chill in Charm City!
