More on Pazo.

By Aleka Farha | Posted 9/24/2008

Admittedly on Friday nights we can often be found watching movies and going to cheap bars to pay $1.50 for a Bud or Coors Light. But there are some nights when we decide to get a little dressy and see what this city has to offer. In the case of Harbor East fave Pazo, it's an eclectic menu of cocktails and impressive wines. The house red is only $6 a glass and tastes like $12. The atmosphere is lively, with people gathered around the grand white marble bar or mingling in the sofa-strewn lounge area as jazz plays in the background. It can get very loud around 11 p.m. on the weekends when the place gets really packed, but we don't even notice thanks to the Cava Royale, a blend of peach nectar, sparkling wine, and fresh lime ($6.95 a glass). The wide variety of tapas offered at the bar--you can order anything off the restaurant menu--keeps us from getting too Cava Royale-soaked. Priced mostly between $4 and $9, the tapas pack a ton of flavor and don't destroy our meager budget as long as we don't let the little dishes stack up. The service is friendly and attentive despite the large sea of customers. With complementary valet parking, alleviating the nightmare proposition of trolling for a spot in Fells Point, Pazo has become a place we want to be on Friday nights.
