Old school hip-hop at the Ibis Tavern
Yesterday and today, I've been tinkering with the nightlife column for Friday's Live section. This week's column is about our recent Harford Road bar crawl.
Turns out, I ended up writing too much, and we had to cut some from the final column. One of the bars we stopped by had to be cut out entirely. Here's what didn't make the column.
The Ibis Tavern is a small space with a decent drink selection; we ended up ordering a round of Rolling Rock bottles for $3 each.
Mirrors lined the walls, sports were playing on the three flat screen TVs and the tempting smell of spicy Caribbean food permeated the place ...
Old school hip-hop (sadly, yes, '90s hip-hop is now technically old school) is hard to find at bars and clubs, since so many DJs only want to play hot new singles.
And the crowd was loving it – one couple cleared a few square feet and started busting moves in the middle of the bar.
