Listen to Great Live Music at These Baltimore Bars

by Jennifer Waldera on Apr 19, 2017 in Roundups

There are plenty of vast venues around the city hosting musicians, but there are a multitude of more modest spots to enjoy the music of local bands with some beverages. While the list of possibilities is long, we’ve narrowed it to just a few favorites.

This longstanding Federal Hill venue draws a variety of bands playing anything from bluegrass or rock to reggae or tributes. (10 E Cross St; 410-625-2000)

Bertha’s
A corner mainstay in Fells Point known for its mussels, Bertha’s also features live bands reliably on weekends and often on Wednesdays and Thursdays as well. (734 S Broadway; 410-327-5795)
 
Cat’s Eye Pub
Live music is on tap at this waterfront pub nearly all day 365 days a year, often featuring two bands in one day. (1730 Thames St; 410-276-9866)
 
The Crown
This Station North venue plays host to a variety of events with plenty of live music as well as a DJ, karaoke, and Korean cuisine. (1910 N Charles St; 410-625-4848)
 
The Horse You Came In On

This cozy spot with lounge seating, as well as two bars, is increasingly playing host to local live musicians. (311 W Madison St; 443-938-9109)
