Changes at Charlotte's

Midnight Sunner Evan snapped this shot of a transfer of ownership posting outside the now-defunct Charlotte's on Light Street in South Baltimore.

Looks like someone named Sean White is taking over the place, though he doesn't have a company name posted yet. I nominate Pong Bar.

But seriously folks. it's good to see new bars opening despite the recession.

Do you know what Mr. White plans to do with the space? Are you sworn to secrecy?

No, not yet, I am not good with secrets anyway. I am excited about it. I will talk to Mr. Lasker the next time I see him.

Hopefully, he puts some windows in and a kitchen, however a kitchen will be a ton of money.

Maybe some beerpong tables and $1 bottles??? Just joking.

I am hearing that they are planning to open in a couple of months

My office is right across the street from there... Not sure how I got scooped on the pic.

Snowboarding bar! Awesome!!

I've caught wind that the new owners are looking to spruce the place up some and they will be adding a kitchen. It's good to hear that money is still being spent to brighten up the neighborhood during these tough times. Good Luck to them!!

Judging from the loud music and the crowds pouring up light street on 10 october 2009,doesnt look like Sean White is going to make a good neighbor to the people who live here and would like some peace and quiet.

I know this bars past as I have lived near it for 48 years and it sounds like it has retained some of its bad ways. I now see beer and liquor bottles from this bar being left on my steps again with the usual food wrappers,soda cans and beverage cups.

This neighborhood is not zoned for frat parties and I hope the loud music I heard on 10 october 2009 will not become a regular habit. That kind of thing belongs at a rock concert,not in a residential neighborhood.
