Fab Five Friday
We are indeed blessed when it comes to Baltimore bars.
Fells Point has some of the best watering holes on the East Coast. Federal Hill and Canton perfectly fit the bill for the post-college crowd.
But there are still things I wish this city had.
Here are my five wishes for the Baltimore nightlife scene:
1. Better service
I can't tell you how frustrated I get with Baltimore bartenders. If anything about this city's bars and restaurants really needs to change, it's the quality of service.
2. More dance clubs
There are not enough places to dance in Charm City.
3. More locally brewed beers on tap
I wish more bars had Clipper City (like the one pictured), Brewer's Art and Oliver Ale suds on tap.
4. Better parking
No one wants more parking garages in their backyard, but Fells Point and Federal Hill get tied into a knot on some Friday and Saturday nights. That needs to change.
5. More horseshoe bars
I know the layout of most rowhouses won't allow it, but I really like wraparound bars. They are the only thing I like about chains like Applebee's. J. Patrick's in Locust Point has one. Horse shoe-shaped bars give a place more of an intimate feeling. I like that.
