Where to Go in Baltimore to Avoid St. Patrick's Day

Where to Go in Baltimore to Avoid St. Patrick's Day

Most people know where they are going for their revelry around Baltimore to celebrate the luck o’ the Irish. Many neighborhoods are known for their parties that rage over several weekends, before and after the holiday. But where do you go when you want to get out, but avoid hitting the streets filled with green beer?

While there’s no shortage of bars that do celebrate this holiday, your best bet if you’re seeking to avoid theses shenanigans is to veer away from the main party areas (Canton, I see your bands and pints of Guinness!). Even better, if it’s not corned beef and cabbage you’re seeking, why not try hitting up some of the bars in restaurants that offer fare of another type altogether?

Germano’s Piattini (300 South High St.; 410-752-4515)
This Little Italy mainstay recently got a facelift and features a new contemporary menu with small plates and a wide range of wine and craft beer on rotation. You can also check out the Cabaret, a place you’re sure to not find shamrocks or leprechauns.

Indigma (801 North Charles St.; 443-449-6483)
While you can go and satiate your craving for some samosas if you choose, if drinks are what you’re looking for, their bar is the perfect place to settle in. With a long list of martinis, a good beer list, and an impressive amount of wine by the glass, you can’t go wrong avoiding the hooligans here!

Chiu’s Sushi (608 South Exeter St.; 410-752-4225)
While you may find some wearers of the green in Harbor East, where Chiu’s is tucked away, it’s unlikely to find anyone sporting green headbands with shamrocks in this authentic sushi restaurant. Enjoy your Sapporos (or sake bombs - we’re not judging!) here for a much more serene drinking and dining scene.

Ozra (806 Stiles St.; 410-528-2710)
A newcomer in recent months, Ozra is a perfect hideaway during the St. Patrick’s craziness. With an elegant bar, and warm ambiance, you can’t go wrong splitting some appetizers to accompany your adult (non-green) beverages of choice.

Ikaros (4901 Eastern Ave.; 410-663-3750)
With a new location on Eastern Avenue, this Greek restaurant is sporting a new, larger bar and lounge. Well away from the major carousing of the Irish holiday, but still only a short cab ride from your place in Baltimore, enjoy some authentic Greek food, or just swill some wine on their extensive list.
