An Die Musik is one of Baltimore's premier jazz venues - it hosts an imaginative, exciting line up of artists and events throughout the year. The intimacy of the interior, from the wood paneling on the walls to the small raised stage provides concert-goers with a unique sonic experience. Tickets for gigs tend to sell out quite quickly so check out the calendar on the website for upcoming shows. An Die Musik also functions as a music store.
This nightspot offers a breathtaking view of the city from the top floor of the old Belvedere Hotel. Settle in for happy hour and watch the dusk settle over the city as its lights gradually begin to twinkle on. The calm won't last much past 9pm though. That's when local dance bands take the stage, the disco ball begins to swirl and the club transforms into a slightly silly and thoroughly retro dance party. The 13th Floor also serves excellent bar food, including a small selection of delicious desserts.
According to Celtic music aficionados, this Fells Point pub is the place to go in Baltimore to hear authentic Irish folk music. With its wood-paneled walls and gigantic oak bar, it's the perfect setting for hoisting a glass of Guinness or Harp and enjoying a jig or reel. The steady stream of Irish musicians is supplemented by local and national jazz, blues and zydeco acts. Fell's Point can be quite busy on weekends, so to enjoy the full homey effect of this place, visit during the week.
The hippest place in Baltimore to see an alternative rock band is this scruffy, but chic, midtown establishment. The bar itself is very small, so many patrons stand or sit in front of the tiny stage, or wander around the multi-colored second and third floors. The bands are either unsigned locals or independent-label acts. All play loud and fast.
