Weekend Suggestions

Coming to Baltimore for the weekend to see the Orioles-Nats with a buddy. Neither of us have ever been to Baltimore before. Locals; If you only had 48 hours in town, what bars and restaurants are MUST VISITS? Please, as many suggestions as possible. We are staying at the Hilton near Camden Yards. thanks!

If you can, get to Faidley's in Lexington Market for a crabcake. They are the best downtown, IMO. Use the Paca St entrance.

For pre-game, go to Pickle's Pub or Pratt Street Ale House for beers. Afterward, head to Federal Hill for an array of bars and restaurants of all kinds and price ranges.

The inner harbor is worth a stroll, and getting a bite to eat or a drink at a place with a view is still worth it even though it's not really known for good food.

You could also spend another day doing Fells Point, Canton, Ft. McHenry, the Aquarium and then Power Plant Live.

If you have any more specific likes/dislikes I'll be glad to help...and I am sure others will too.

Pickles near Camden yards is a good place to go before/after the games. Fells Point is a must-visit... tons of pubs, some of the good ones are Max's for beer selection, Slainte irish pub and their third floor roof bar, waterfront pub (used for filming in the old series homicide), cats eye.... also one eyed mikes - off the main drag, but it's a pretty solid divey bar with fabulous food and a grand marnier club. Federal Hill is another neighborhood close to your hotel... the strip by Cross Street market has tons of bars - good single scene for 20's, 30's... Magerks (philly bar), Mothers, Ryleighs, No Way Jose... the Market is good too if you go on Friday afternoon - they have oysters, crab cakes and serve beer in big cups.

Canton is also a good neighborhood if you make it over there, a little further from your hotel... I'm not sure how old you are, but the power plant live also has some clubs clustered together in one little area across from the harbor- it's a younger crowd but they usually have bands on the patio on fridays, so you might enjoy it.

Plenty of bars in Fells Point and Federal Hill that are worth a visit.

Fells Point:

You can catch a World Cup match at Silante, a great Irish pub.

You can get great mussels and cask temperature beer at Bertha's.

To try out a selection from hundreds of beers there's Max's on Broadway.

One Eyed Mike's and the Horse You Came In On Saloon are great bars with great music.

Federal Hill:

Cross Street Market has a great food selection.

Pub Dog has interesting pizzas and great home brews served 2-for-1 (small glasses but great for sharing.)

Ryleigh's is a loud sports bar and THE place for raw oysters.

If you want to go off the beaten path, there's Golden West Cafe, a southwestern/Asian fusion polace in Hampden that serves great breakfasts. For dinner, there's Pazo, a high end tapas place in Harbor East, or Salt, an American tavern near Patterson Park.

For a bit more upscale (NOT formal) evening try dinner at The Brewer's Art (www.thebrewersart.com) followed by drinks at the Owl Bar (www.owlbar.com). These are around the corner from each other a short drive north from Federal Hill.

To go to Brewer's Art and Owl Bar, as the above poster mentioned, you won't even need a car. Just hop on the Charm City Circulator Purple Line which runs north and south between Federal Hill and Mt Vernon. It runs every 10 mins and is free.
