Exploring Lobo, Where Classy Meets Casual

Exploring Lobo, Where Classy Meets Casual

Already teeming with around 122 bars and restaurants, Fell’s Point has been welcoming newcomers to the scene all spring and summer with Lobo now the newest hot spot to sip.

Housed at the corner of Wolfe and Aliceanna, Lobo is on the far east end of Fell’s Point, lending itself to a bit quieter scene than its waterfront counterparts. Dark wood and lighting of the perfect dimness make this the place to go when you want to sidle up to the bar, indulge in your favorite cocktail, and still hold a conversation with the person that came in with you.

And speaking of favored liquor… Lobo has you covered, especially if you’re a whiskey fan. While whiskey isn’t their only focus, they are proud of their ever growing selection. As for their shaken and stirred selections, you might be pleased to recognize some faces behind the bar from other local joints that definitely know how to sling some drinks. We’re particularly impressed with the creativity of mixing Natty Boh with squeezed grapefruit and cantaloupe to make a Baltimore style shandy, but the Espresso Martini with espresso, vanilla vodka and ChocoVine is enticing as well.

Looking for vino? Lobo goes beyond the standard house wine selection rut in which so many Baltimore bars find themselves. Yes, we all like Cab Sauv and Chardonnay, but we also like a bar that thinks outside the box (or bottle?). For this, count on Lobo which often offers the likes of a Tempranillo or a Cava on their happy hour menu as well as a pleasantly varied by the glass list.

While we’re talking about happy hour, let’s say that this is one to put on the to do list. Each weekday three types of wine, two draughts and two cocktails are each offered at $5 between 4 and 7 PM. Pair that with specials like 2 for $3 oysters, 2 for $2 littleneck clams, $4 house-made onion dip (made with caramelized onions and paired with crinkle chips) or a $4 olive plate, and this is one of the classiest ways to casually wind down around town.

Outside of the happy hour menu, Lobo’s menu is chock full of exactly what they promised prior to opening - mainly small plates and casual snacks with some soups, salads, and sandwiches thrown in there. Their specialties come from the raw bar or in the form of cheese and charcuterie.

Newly opened in mid-July there are many plans for changes and additions to the current food and drink options. Keep your eyes out for specials like Sunday Industry Nights (20% off tab for those in hospitality) and daily happy hour menus on their Facebook page.
