If you’re familiar with the Elk Room, you already know that it’s a cocktail bar with a hip, speakeasy-style vibe. When you visit, you’ll find that this Baltimore hotspot offers a truly unique ambiance and a long list of custom, hand-crafted cocktails, as well as bartenders that regulars say are among the best in the city.
Moreover, the Elk Room is one of the area’s most popular live music venues. Lounge, jazz, fusion and soul performers take the stage on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays, which adds to the 1920s ambiance. Blake Meister, Upendo, and Joel Michael-Schwartz are just a few of the regular artists, but be sure to check the online calendar for a full schedule of upcoming performances. If it’s your first visit, be aware that you might have to do a little detective work to get in—like a true speakeasy, there’s no sign on the door.
