The bar is historic and has such a cool atmostphere, with saddle seats and several rooms to sit in. I loved the live music late afternoon with affordable happy hour drinks. I highly recommend visiting here if you come to Baltimore!

A local place with a fun history. It is a whiskey bar. Lots to choose from. If you are not getting whiskey drinks seem to be watered down. Was loud when we were there - they had live music in the front and a DJ...More

Yes- we had our 18 and 16 year olds with us, although it was during the day. You may want to check if there's a certain time when children aren't allowed. We were there around 5pm.
