Wow. Nobody guessed the mystery bar.

Ha! Alexander D. Mitchell IV and I finally stumped ya.

Despite multiple clues and several days of guessing time, nobody could figure out the identity of the mystery bar in the latest Name That Bar contest. 

So, you wanna know what it was? ...

I am actually surprised that no one guessed it, because I know more than a few of you have been to Teavolve. I even wrote a nightlife column on the place not too long ago.

I'm waiting for someone to grumble about Teavolve not being a bar and blah blah blah. But, dear readers, Teavolve has a liquor license and serves fancy martinis infused with tea.

So there.

Thanks again for playing, everybody.

Maybe you'll get it next time around. Hee hee.

That's lamer than FDR's legs

This means we immediately need a new mystery bar contest up stat so we can redeem ourselves!

Teavolve? Really? I didn't know they had wine, beer, etc...I'll have to swing by and get a brewski with my wheatgrass hummus.

Just to make sure I understand the rules of the game. Any place with a liquor license should be considered for the "Name That Bar" contest? Would this include Jimmy's in Fells Point? They have a liquor license that allows them to serve beer and wine.

Ah, but does it have a bar? <:-)

It has a counter and stools (like most diners) along the left side as you walk in. Some may consider it a counter, while other might consider it a bar.

Boo..... simply boo.

doh... if I was not on a news/blog break I would have guessed it - tho I stick to Teavolve's sandwiches, teas, and coffees and have not tried the booze. They have started pushing music and DJs on the weekends, but I have not seen too many people flocking there Fr/Sat nights.
