Baltimore book club meeting spot?
Anyone have a suggestion for where my book club could meet in Baltimore city? We're looking for some place in the evening after work, where the waiters/owners wouldn't mind us hanging out for a couple hours. There are approximately 8 of us.
I haven't been on a weeknight recently to know how crowded it gets, but Teavolve has a lovely space on Aliceanna. They are supposed to be opening a new place up near Hopkins Hospital, but not sure it's open yet. http://teavolve.com/ They do food and alcoholic beverages (in addition to coffees and teas).
I assume you're looking to order food as well as drinks? If so, what about a tapas place like Mezze where you could order lots of small dishes over the course of the meeting? The food at Mezze is delicious, and they have larger tables for bigger groups. If you're more interested in beer/snacks, what about Heavy Seas Alehouse? You all could find a quiet nook in one of their back rooms. Their beer selection is great, and their bar food is stellar.
