Best Bar, Hampden

Rocket to Venus

3360 Chestnut Ave., (410) 235-7887,

Just a few years ago, picking the best bar in Hampden would be more process of elimination than anything else. Now, there’s everything from blue-collar haunts to hipster havens. Rocket to Venus gets the nod because it’s got everything we look for in a bar: good food, a thoughtful selection of beers on tap, a wine list that goes beyond the expected, and a kick-ass jukebox. It also boasts skilled and friendly bartenders, stylish but not trendy decor, and a scene that is lively without being too crowded or cool. If we can grab a seat outside on a nice night, so much the better.
