The Best Places to Drink Outside in Baltimore

As the weather gets warmer, a young Baltimorean’s thoughts turn to frosty pints, or spiked lemonade, or minty mojitos, or crisp glasses of Vino Verde. There’s something extra-refreshing about having a drink outside on a balmy night; here are some of our favorite places to do just that. Add your own favorites in the comments!

In Mt. Vernon:
Grand Central – Baltimore’s friendliest, most inclusive gay bar is almost always playing excellent music.

In Fell’s Point:
Woody’s Rum Bar - Known by some as the “Best Bar to Get Day Drunk” on large, sweet, island-themed drinks, all while overlooking the beautiful sandy shores of…. the Inner Harbor. Your call whether that’s a plus or a minus.

In Hampden:
Rocket to Venus – Starting around this time of year, the restaurant’s outside seating area seems packed every time I drive by. Plus, there’s a 8 percent chance you’ll see John Waters.

In Charles Village:
Gertrude’s – Go on half-price wine night (Wednesday) to ease the sticker-shock a bit. But the courtyard is lovely!

In Federal Hill:
The Tiki Barge – Yes, it’s kind of trashy. But it’s also a boat! With a swimming pool! Just go with it. Can’t take the marine air? Retreat to Little Havana‘s popular outdoor seating area, if you can snag a table.

Honorable Mention:  Your own backyard/roof deck/fire escape/porch. It’s BYOB and there probably won’t be a crowd.
