Best Place for One Drink Too Many

Club Charles

1724 N. Charles St., (410) 727-8815

Posted 9/20/2006

Barhopping seems like a good idea on any given Friday or Saturday night--or Wednesday or Thursday depending on your constitution and/or lack of sense. Yet there's always that point, about 30 minutes before last call, when you decide just one more drink won't hurt. Everyone's got a place to have that final, ill-fated beer--ours just happens to be the Club Charles. It's centrally located, halfway between Fells Point/Federal Hill and Hampden/Charles Village. It's dark enough that just about anybody looks good. It's got comfortable booths to slump into for those having trouble maintaining verticality. And there's usually a raft of cabs waiting outside to cart the drunken safely home. Plus it's generally full of people we know, which just adds to the "fun" the next morning when asked to explain our inappropriate comment/vomit/blackout/awkward one-night stand. Show up on any random weeknight after 1 a.m. and, you too, could be the one we're leaning on, slurring "I'm sooooooo drunk" like a total asshole.
