Tourists go to Fells Point, as locals know well, and they're likely to go to the waterfront bars on Thames Street to soak up some local color. What they may or may not understand is that local color isn't necessarily found at tourist-friendly bars. It is found at the Dead End Saloon, though, along with what may be the best view from any bar in Baltimore: the cobblestones and brick homes on Fell Street, complemented by lush greenery, seen through the Dead End's large picture windows. The bartenders are kind and accommodating, the noise levels are low enough to allow for conversation without losing your voice, and you're not likely to run into drunk frat boys or any other college carousers. Instead, working folks and old-timers mix amiably with the newer Fells Point demographic of higher-income professionals. Tourists, if they come, would likely leave feeling good about Baltimore.
