fun, funky place in Bmore???

a group of friends are getting together to celebrate a birthday. any suggestions? somewhere with a fun atmosphere, good food, and good booze. nothing to fancy, brewers art is a possibility to give you an idea what i am thinking. any ideas are appreciated!

  1. Nacho Mamas? Cosmopolitan (not so much "funky" per say, but happening)?

    1. I like the Waterfront in Fells Point.

          Yes - I think their food is pretty good. You can sit upstairs then stop at the bar on the first floor for drinks before/or after. Plus, they have live music every night.

      1. Jack's is small but definitely fits the fun, funky, unfancy bill.

        1. Henningers Tavern in Fells Point

          or Peters Inn in Fells Point

              I have ot been to Rub, but it's gotten mixed reviews here. I need to go check it out -- it's just a few blocks away.

                I like Rub for sure. The decor is a little too overdone for me to think it's funky, but it is very laid back and the food is really good. You have to be a meat eater definitely. The margaritas are really good. The parking is insanely easy :)

            2. Peter's Inn is great, but I would never call it "fun and funky"!!!

              I suggest:
              Brewer's Art (eat upstairs then move downstairs for a more "funky" atmosphere)
              Nacho Mama's
              Red Star (not really funky, but fun)

                My God. If you want edible food, do not go to Nacho Mama's. Drinks yes, food no.

                Go to Jack's Bistro and sit in the bar area.
