Overview

The oldest continually operated Saloon in North America dating back to the late 1700s. The only Licensed alcohol establishment in Maryland to exist before, during, and after prohibition. The Horse you Came in on Saloon has been at the heart of Baltimore's local live music scene for over five decades. Hosting over one-thousand live music performances per year, you're certain to catch some great local live acoustic tunes on during your stay. Offering a full lunch and dinner menu featuring a combination of classic pub fare, south of the border favorites, and local crab-centric items such as our Crab Pretzel, and Angus Certified Philly Crab Cheesesteak. The portions are generous, so come hungry. Local legend has it that "The Horse" was a favorite drinking spot for the talented American author and Poet, Edgar Allan Poe. The facts around Mr.Poe's death remain a mystery; however it has been suggested and believed by many that The Horse You Came In On was his last stop before his passing. Through the years many employees & patrons alike have experienced what they believe paranormal activities at the hand of Mr.Poe (some employees, going as far as resigning from their duties). The Horse is the largest on premise Jack Daniel's Bar in the state of Maryland. Per square foot, the most Jack Daniel's is consumed within our four walls than any other pub, saloon, or tavern in the WORLD. Check out our Jack Daniel's Club with over Five Hundred Members and or try one of our Home-Made Jack Daniel's Infused spirits. We welcome you to check us out, grab a cold beer, try some Maryland crab dip and enjoy live local music in our homey & Historical atmosphere. Open at 11 A.M. Daily for Lunch and Live Entertainment, saddle up & stay a while.

My wife and I loved the atmosphere of The Horse You Came in On saloon. We had a short visit in Baltimore, and this was our favorite pub by far. We were there in the afternoon, so I don't know what it's like at night....More

Plenty of other places to visit in Fells Point. Couldn’t even make it in the front door. Bouncers discriminate.

Apparently, they need to educate their bouncers on different types of identification. I have Guam ID, and the bouncer told me it is fake. Fake? We were literally just in the bar an hour ago and they let me with my “fake” ID but when...More

I always enjoy myself at The Horse! The drinks are reasonably priced, the staff is friendly, and the crowd is always clean. They always play live music, which you don't see much of in Baltimore. Two thumbs up!
