Gertrude's Launches Happy Hour

After 13 years of serving creative Chesapeake lunches and dinners to patrons of the Baltimore Museum of Art, Gertrude’s is finally launching a happy hour. What led John Shields to introduce this daily deal, which runs 4–7 PM, Tuesday–Friday (starting today, November 29)?

“The public demanded it,” the dining room manager told us, without much question, adding, “People told us they had to drive out of the area to find a good happy hour, and who wants to do that?” Additionally, many from Johns Hopkins have house accounts at the museum-ensconced restaurant, and daily deals will allow them to hold easy after-work meetups right around the corner.

Starting specials include $3 Heavy Seas beers, $5 wines, $5 local vodkas and soda (PA-distilled Boyd & Blair is the current spirit of choice) and $7 specialty drinks. The house cocktails usually run $9–$11, and include seasonal creations like Falling Leaves (pear-infused Bluecoat gin, Thai basil liqueur, apple juice and cinnamon) and the Smashing Pumpkin (vanilla-infused Boyd & Blair, Sailor Jerry rum, pumpkin syrup, whipped cream and nutmeg with a graham cracker rim).

Head to Charles Village to sit at the copper-topped bar beside great works of art and take advantages of the newly-priced offerings. Tell ‘em Drink Baltimore sent you!
