“Now Royal Farms Arena, Still Good Show Place”
Review of Royal Farms Arena

Royal Farms Arena
Ranked #82 of 208 things to do in Baltimore
Attraction details
Reviewed December 8, 2014

I've seen a number of shows at this arena, which has constantly changing names. (Now it's the Royal Farms Arena). While it's an older facility and could use some renovations, it's still a great place to see a show because it's not a gigantic venue. The sound quality is very good, though not phenomenal. There are lots of seats within a reasonable distance of the stage. If you get one of these, or are on the floor, you feel an intimacy with the performer (s) you don't often get in vast venues such as the Verizon Center in DC. Concessions are also a little old school, but fine, except the wine (Barefoot) which is horrendous. Give wine drinkers some choice. One MAJOR plus: without exception we have always found the vendor servers to be pleasant, friendly and extremely efficient handling large lines.

I have visited this venue for two Baltimore Charm games and one Baltimore Blast game. The building is very outdated and it is kind of hard to find your way around. The food is not great with a very limited selection. All you get is beer, popcorn, and hotdogs that's about it and even then they just serve Big Name type beers. The seats are narrow and not very comfortable. The sound system there is pretty bad too. The games I have gone to see there have been good but the arena really needs to be updated or replaced. The good news is the venue is so small you can sit up close to the performance or game. It serves a purpose for right now.

This arena does its job well. It is a place to have indoor shows and events in the heart of the city, but that is about all it does. It is a small arena and is in desperate need of a serious upgrade. I have been there many times and it is still pretty much the same now as it was back in the early 80's.

Pazo is an Italian restaurant located in a modern lounge space in Fells Point. I went with a group from my conference after work. We were immediately greeted by the hostess who was going to direct us to the lounge for a drink. The lounge area contains several couches with pillows, tables and a bar. We requested a table and tried a variety of red and white wines, crab and avocado bruschetta, pastas and pizza. Everything was delicious and I highly recommend the bucatini with lamb, beef and duck. While we were unable to obtain separate checks (required for our business travel), the waiter provided us multiple copies of the original receipt to try to accommodate us. He was attentive without hovering. Overall we had a lovely dinner and I would highly recommend Pazo to anybody visiting Baltimore.

Enjoyed seeing John Mayer here. Its an older arena but still a decent place to see a show. Sight lines are a little wonky but should be expected. I would go back for a show again.
