Best Scenester Bar

The Depot

1728 N. Charles St., (410) 528-0174,

Posted 9/20/2006

What exactly is a scenester? Traditionally speaking, "scene" implies stereotypes. There's the rock scene: crusty guys with unwashed hair, and girls with tattoos who smell like Jägermeister. There's the gay scene: well-groomed men with a passion for fashion. There's the dance scene: thirtysomethings trying to relive their club-drug days, usually dressed in some kind of unflattering shiny material. And there's the hip-hop scene: name-brand baggy pants-wearing freestylers and ladies with their hair and nails did, please step up. Well, enough of that stereotype shit, because we've found a place that has it all. Formerly described by City Paper as "a dark club with a bar, dance floor, and plenty of black-clad folks hanging out," the Depot lightened up a tad with Juice, a diverse Thursday night dance party, and the every-other-Sunday smash party Are We Not Men? Seems like midtown's little goth hole has become, well, multipurpose. So cheers to our new favorite scene-a-licious bar. We bet it'll be yours, too, no matter what you're into.
