Inside The Get Down
Last week, we learned about The Get Down, the new lounge replacing Fletcher's in Fells Point.
Now, manager Laura O'Neill was kind enough to share some more (and better) photos of the interior. Keep in mind, they're still working on it, and the space has a ways to go yet. But these shots give you an idea about the layout and a rough sketch of how it's eventually going to look. Pictured, at top, is the second floor. As you can see, they knocked out a good section of the floor and installed some railing. Here are a couple more pics ...
Below is a view of the first floor. In the far right corner, you can kind of see the original downstairs bar, which hasn't changed much. They just sanded it down some and put on a new coat of finish, owner Bryan Burkert told me. When I was there a couple weeks ago, they were also sanding down the hardwood floors. It doesn't look the same without the pool tables, does it?
And finally, a panoramic view of the upstairs floor. To the far left is where the stage used to be. To the right, the bar is still there. Burkert is keeping the basic layout of the place, which was originally four rowhouses. There are still plenty of nooks and crannies, and each will have a distinct feel, he said.
