The skinny on Lebanese Taverna's late night happy hour
Last Friday, Amie and I went to Lebanese Tavern to check out their new late night happy hour, which runs from 9 p.m.-2 a.m. Fridays.
With its high, curved ceiling and dark tones, Lebanese Taverna's bar area is a sharp, sleek space. It's a place where you can feel comfortable in jeans or a suit.
We took a table by the door, and glanced at the happy hour menu. A server brought us a basket of soft, warm pita bread and a saucer of olive oil mixed with herbs.
DJ Gray (of GoodLove fame) spun some easy house grooves spiced with sitars and other Indian flourishes, at a listenable level -- not too loud, not too quiet ...
Amie ordered a glass of a smooth but full-bodied tempranillo, and I got a mojito. Carlin's mojitos aren't too sweet, because he puts a bit of triple sec in them.
The best part about the happy hour? Both our drinks came to less than $5. Nice!
Before this happy hour started, Lebanese Taverna closed around 11 p.m., Carlin said. But Harbor East was crying out for late night drinks and food, and it's good to see Lebanese Taverna filling that void.(Baltimore Sun archive photo. That's me in the orange shirt.)
