LP Docks also cuts back

The days might be numbered for LP Docks (1476 Reynolds St.).

The Locust Point corner bar sits in the middle of a rapidly changing neighborhood. When Silo Point goes online it probably won't be long before the place shuts down.

Heck, it's barely open now. Look at the hours posted on the door.

It's a shame, considering LP Docks has the certifiably smallest men's bathroom in all of Baltimore. You couldn't fit a coffin inside.

But change has to come sooner or later, I guess.

If that's how they been posting their hours, it looks desperate and sad.
Seems like a sorry end is rapidly approaching.

A pity

Sam, if you got out once in a while, you'd know that sign has been there since at LEAST early February.

Yes, I assure you We are Open.

Sam,

The place has been for sale since February. They are staying open part time to keep the liquor license, which is owned by Mark Sapperstein (surprise surprise) active. I looked into buying the building for the purpose of a real estate investment but I wanted nothing to do with a liquor license tied to Sapperstein.

If I had to deal with anyone who was involved in RICO investigation, I'd run.

What? No lottery?!? Forgetaboutit. Let's go to Boomers.

Very interesting, This establishment was regarded as being on it's last legs in the following Baltimore Sun article more than two years ago.

Raising the bar:
Fort Avenue's blue-collar saloons, where residents socialized, groused and caroused, are giving way to bars catering to an increasingly gentrified neighborhood

Kind of a shame, 'cause although it wasn't DIRECTLY on fort ave, it had that same attitude as the others mentioned above in the article posted by GDA. Also, it was one of the few places in Fed Hill with space for live music. Best of luck to Biff, Sarah and the gang.

LP Docks has a new printed sign on their doors with the hours. Maybe it is the "sign of the times"? As Silo Point is now showing the condos so more people are driving by LP Docks.
