Inside The Get Down

the second floor of the get downLast 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?the first floor of the get down

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.

R.I.P. Fletcher's & Friends :(

Hate the name, but the new layout looks great.


Me likey!

I agree Dave the wave... RIP Friends, Fletcher's AND Lulu's. It's hard to reproduce the charm of those old places. Enjoyed some great shows many years ago at Fletcher's, but they had nothing that interested me in the past 5 years really anyway, the booking was lacking. Oh well, out with the old, in with the new. Looks nice what they are doing, just sad to lose the gritty feel.

I am so looking for somewhere to go dancing on saturday nights? I hope this will work out.
