Bars with Purse Hooks in Baltimore

Bars with Purse Hooks in Baltimore

Hanging your bag on the back of a chair could be one of the top five most annoying things about going out. People bang into it and the straps press up against your back, and you never can be sure someone isn't sneakily reaching inside. Happily, many of our favorite bars have installed hooks to alleviate our bag-at-bar woes. Here is a quick list of Baltimore bars with purse hooks. Know another? Let us know on Twitter or Facebook and we'll add to the list.

The Admiral’s Cup: Hang up that bag for an all-you-can-drink brunch on Saturday or Sunday (1647 Thames St.; 410-534-5555).

The Americana: With one of the best selections of local brews on draft, we knew this tavern would have the foresight to add purse hooks as well (900 South Kenwood Ave.; 443-708-8466).
