Best Backroom Bar

“The Secret Bar” in Charles Restaurant and Carryout

2500 St. Paul St., (410) 366-1600

Tucked off in the corner of the Charles Carryout, behind a swinging door, is a little 12-seat bar, decorated with a mix of art, old bar signage, Boh memorabilia, and tons of Christmas lights. It has a no-frills beer and booze selection, but this is the kind of place where you want to order a domestic beer or a rail drink anyway. You can draw on the bar (or the walls) with chalk, or order a chicken tikka masala pizza to munch on. Rarely crowded, not too bright, it’s the perfect place to duck in for a quick one or to take that date you aren’t quite ready to reveal to the crowds at the Club Charles or the Ottobar.
