Cocktails Below

When you live at Union Wharf, you don’t have to go far to get a cocktail! Just steps away from your home here at Union Wharf, you’ll find Chilangos. If you haven’t been to this amazing Mexican restaurant yet, then be sure to check it out and enjoy a delectable Cucumber Margarita this National Cocktail Day. 

When Life Gives You Lemons, Make a G&T

Sip, sip, hooray! The Bluebird in Hampden is a literary-themed bar with dark romantic aesthetics and candlelight; they provide ample seating, communal tables, and lounges. Bluebird’s cocktail menu is quite extensive, with classic and original cocktails. For example, the Bee’s Knees is an in-house potion of gin, lemon, hibiscus-infused honey, and black tea. They also offer various absinthe drips to add to your cocktail. 

Dutch Courage in Remington won’t let you go thirsty. Their creative cocktails call all gin lovers, especially with Black Magic. Black Magic is one of their signature cocktails that contains gin, benedictine, blackberry cordial, lemon, and torched rosemary. Order this delectable drink in historic Old Goucher.  

Are You Looking for Something Neat?

Federal Hill’s first speakeasy, The Wurst Bar, takes you back to the Prohibition Era with boozy beverages upstairs, behind the refrigerator in Crossbar. Order an Old Fashioned with whiskey, bitters, sugar, and oranges for a classic vibe. 

Are you feeling a little shaken? Rye in Fells Point can help with that. Their upscale and sophisticated atmosphere comes with live music and a fireplace. And, if you like to experiment with your drinks, this is the place for you. Rye is known for its cocktail, “My Wife is a Gangster,” with Slane Irish whiskey, herbal liquor, Asian pear spices, lemon, and sesame.

Vodka Time Is It?

Calling all music lovers, Bar 1801 in Butcher’s Hill honors music with an extensive vinyl, cd, and tape selection and a fantastic soundtrack. Their low-key vibe and take on an espresso martini are excellent for a night out. “The Dude” is served with vodka, coffee liquor, and oat milk.

Let bygones be bygones. Harbor East’s Bygone is a glamorous and elevated cocktail bar bringing it back to the 1920s jazz scene inside the Four Seasons. Sip on their bright Bygone Buck with vodka, lime, pineapple, ginger beer, and cardamom.

Drink Happy Thoughts

WC Harlan is a speakeasy tucked behind a backdoor with a chalkboard sign saying “Enter.” Inside, guests can bask in the rustic atmosphere with antiques, hardware, and grand piano. Their Pisco Sour is a delight, with pisco, lime juice, egg white, and bitters. 

The Elk Room in Harbor East is a jazzy speakeasy with dim lighting and an intimate feel. Their esteemed cocktail is Fool’s Gold, with bourbon, cherries, almonds, lemon, honey, and eucalyptus. 

Clock Restoration Bar honors the history of its building—a former repair shop—with old-fashioned furniture and clocks. Clock Bar is known to be a “hidden gem” in Downtown Baltimore. Order their Hemingway’s Daiquiri with rum, fresh lime, grapefruit, and Maraschino liqueur.
