The next Fab Five Friday

I'd like to make the next Fab Friday about the best bars without TVs, but I'm worried I might not find enough. What do you think?

The picture is of the Idle Hour on Fort Avenue, which has a flat screen, but only breaks it out for Ravens games. 

Oh, and by the way, I went to Stalking Horse last night, and yes, it's still closed. Thanks for all your help, guys ... Mather, I thought you lived in Federal Hill. Where's the love?

does without TVs mean, tvs but not on all the time? Cuz the Idle Hour fits that bill.
good luck finding a bar with no TV at all though!
Ohhhh...wait.....Dionysis and Club Charles have no TVs. I don't think Dourghty's has one either.

j patricks on andre street doesn't have tv's

No TVs . . . Mount Royal Tavern?

JM, I say Idle Hour is fair game.

Brewer's Art and Club Charles. And Spy Club, although they haven't been open for a while.

Hey Bob, not only does Mt. Royal Tavern have a TV, they have two. One in the front of the bar and one in the back. During football season they are very LOUD and obnoxious. I hate the fact that between September and January i can't go out for a drink on Sundays without screaming lunatics in my ear. Geesh...

How about Rocket to Venus in Hampden? No television, and a nice beer selection.
