Best Gay Bar

Grand Central

Uli Loskot

1001/1003 N. Charles St., (410) 752-7133,

Posted 9/17/2008

When it comes to GLBT nightlife, Grand Central has been an endearing fusion of charming neighborhood bar and fabulous club scene since 1991. The revamped historic rowhouses feature plenty of frivolity: several bars, wet underwear contests, fashion shows, karaoke, dance parties, resident drag queens--need we say more? If the special events don't do it for you, the rich wooden bars, stained glass, and industrial elegance of the main dance space should. Outside, the rooftop patio, with its bistro tables,and fresh flowers, provides an eclectic haven for smokers, who can not only unwind after spending hours on the dance floor but also enjoy the Charles Street view, which makes for superb people-watching. Whether you prefer a relaxing night on the town or feel the urge to party like a rock star, Grand Central has you covered.
