Map / Directions Admissions:

  • Cover Charged with Entertainment: $7 - $20

  • Dance Clubs: "Some dance nights are 18+ and others 21+."
  • Live Music: "Geeks Night Out! – one of their unique events – is brought to you by The Ottobar and Collectors Corner. It's a monthly celebration dedicated to comics, video games, boardgames, cartoons, music, movies, toys and all things nerdy.

    Play their games or bring your own. Cosplayers get two-for-one drinks."
  • Best Nightlife: "Upstairs is a good place to start a date, converse, etc. Ottobar features bars upstairs and downstairs, but doesn't serve food. It's not a tragedy, as a meat-centric gastropub has opened across the street and they're also a block away from Korea Town, with several options open until 4 a.m."
  • Best for Dance Clubs Because: Ottobar's two floors have different vibes, with the upstairs being more intimate. Downstairs has lots of energy and welcomes a diverse crowd.
  • Best for Live Music Because: With their now North Baltimore location, this is a real local venue – not touristy at all. It reflects the diversity of the city.
  • Recommended as Best Nightlife Because: This venue, a few miles from the Inner Harbor, doesn't feel touristy . . . because it isn't.
