Let's help out Ben, too
I promise this will be the last one of these for a little while. But considering how helpful everybody was with Brad's predicament the other day, I want to throw one more at you.
This one's from Midnight Sun reader Ben:
I've got a girlfriend coming to visit from out of town this weekend. I'd like to impress her by taking her to a nice, classy lounge/bar in Baltimore that would hopefully have a nice view of the city. I thought of the 13th Floor but read some reviews that indicated it wasn't that great a spot. If it isn't an imposition, could you make a suggestion? ...
Ben, the 13th Floor doesn't live up to its potential (for reasons why, see this), but if you want to impress someone with a view of Baltimore City, that's probably the best place to go. The view is pretty awesome -- even if the service and decor are rough around the edges.
Though I've never had a drink there, I've heard good things about the Explorer's Lounge in the Intercontinental Harbor Court Hotel. It's worth looking into.
I think this exposes a much larger issue: Baltimore doesn't have enough bars in tall buildings. Why is that?
Also, are there any spots I'm missing here? Help out Ben!
