Stalking Horse reopens tonight

The Stalking Horse, the Federal Hill bar and restaurant gutted by fire soon after opening last year (pictured), should reopen on or about 6 p.m. tonight at 26 E. Cross St.

You'll notice some big changes in the place -- they opened a second floor with a bar, moved the downstairs bar from the right to the left side of the room and doubled the number of plasma TVs, said manager Marc McFaul.

They also added some pasta dishes to the  menu.

"I'm getting excited about it," McFaul said. 

Their phone number is 410-244-6722.

Ive been to the Stalking Horse the last two nights since it re-opened, and it is really nice. The place has like 500 flat screens, a number of good beers on tap- and of course the frozen drinks. The 3rd floor/deck will be really nice wwhen they open it (probably late spring) and they are going to have DJ's thurs-sat. Last night was $2 miller lights, and Bartender Tommy said there will be other nightly specials, but given how new it is, they didn't know them yet.
DJ Kenny Der, formerly of Mad river and Mt Washington Tavern fame, will be spinning on Saturday night, and the Grand opening, which is Tuesday.
