Fab Five Friday
In retrospect, this Fab Five idea sounded better than it actually was.
Some of you might compare it to bacon vodka.
Either way, the list of the most un-Baltimore spots stands:
1. Pur Lounge, 2322 Boston St.
An easy choice. Nowhere else charges a $20 cover. Viva Miami!
2. Ixia, 518 N. Charles St.
This lounge is un-Baltimore in a good way, methinks. It has a nitro bar. A nitro bar. That's too forward-thinking for Charm City.
3. Stadio/Palma/Redwood Trust, Redwood and Calvert streets (pictured)
This massive club has changed hands so many times I'm not sure what to call it. Either way, it never really fit in here.
4. Xanadu, 10 S. Calvert St.
Formerly Club X Ultra Lounge, this high-end club has little character -- and Baltimore is all about character.
5. The Den, 3327 St. Paul St.
I feel like I'm in another city when I go here.
