    Pound for pound the best bar in Baltimore. They make some good cocktails along with unbelievable service. I am looking forward to being in town when they have "Bacon" night. It sounds interesting.

    Love going to a bar and leaving the drink choice to the bartender, and its amazing every time! Have John or one of the other bartenders make you an amazing Stoli cocktail!

    Bad Decisions has become famous for its Beer and Bacon Happy Hours, but if you get a chance, check out the new Cheese and Cocktail Happy Hour. The food and cocktails are beyond decadent.

    Best nerd bar in Baltimore. If you aren't sure what do get just give them a juice or fruit to work their magic with. You will not be dissapointed! Also, bacon.

    Get the Cascades if you want to make everyone in the room jealous... Tastes horrible but it looks awesome. Also Zombie is a drop kick to the face.

    The most aptly-named bar in Baltimore. Another plus is an entire bacon menu and wide variety of drinks.

    Did you know this place has about 15 varieties of fresh fruit at their disposal? Pick your favorite one and have them make it into a cocktail for you.

    They don't carry every beer, but they make sure they carry good ones. Get a Flying Dog draft, or a can of Resurrection Ale.

    Go there after sundown with a friend or two and have the bar staff make Cascades for you. Then ask for the drink book to see other adventures that lie ahead.

    This is the closest thing to a Tiki Bar drink menu you can find outside of Chicago. If you know what I'm talking about, you're already on your way there...
