Pix of the departed

The end of the year is coming fast, and I found myself reflecting on some of the bars we've lost this year.

Fells Point has seen more bars close than most other neighborhoods.


Lulu's Off Broadway

After four years on Aliceanna Street, Lulu's closed this past weekend.

It will be sorely missed by neighborhood locals and tourists looking for the real Baltimore drinking
experience. ...








The Admiral's Cup

This bar on the corner of South Broadway and Thames Street could get really rowdy on Friday and Saturday nights.

It was not the cleanest of watering holes, but the outside seating was a great place to sit and people watch.







Fells Point Station

I never went inside the station, which sat at 600 S. Broadway, but it always advertised some decent crab specials.

Looked kind of dumpy, though.

It was usually empty, too.

So I wasn't surprised when it closed.







This chameleon-like corner bar went through four coats of paint in its year-long lifespan.
