Music To Your Ears (While You Eat)
If there's anything I like more than a good meal, it's a good meal with good entertainment. This week, I decided to round up some great Baltimore restaurants that offer live music along with their menus.
If you're in the mood for pizza, both Joe Squared locations, (Station North and Inner Harbor) feature music most nights, with acoustic music dinners from 7 pm to 9 pm. Joe Squared is also a great spot to see local art, with rotating shows of Baltimore artists adorning the walls.
Della Notte in Little Italy has piano music on weeknights and showtune night on Sunday, if Broadway is your thing. I've heard the piano player sings Broadway hits, which sounds like a ton of fun to me. Sotto Sopra, in Mount Vernon, has Opera Night once a month, where you can enjoy a pre-fixe dinner and live opera singers. The food at Sotto Sopra is seriously delicious, so I can only imagine how great it would be to enjoy some good Italian cuisine while listening to Italian opera music.
Closer to the Harbor in Fells Point, Waterfront Hotel has live music most nights starting at 10 pm. Their bands range from bluegrass to rockabilly, so it's always fun to peek your head inside and see what's going on. Riptide By The Bay, just a few storefronts away, features bands, alongside their famous crabs and other seafood. Irish bar Slainte has live performers, too--and they're not always performing Irish music, in case fiddles and bagpipes aren't your thing.
Close by, Meli has cabaret singers and local jazz artists on Fridays and Saturdays, as well as live music during happy hour Thursday-Saturday. And Teavolve, the popular teahouse (that actually features a great dinner menu, try the Carolina shrimp and grits!) has performers on Friday and Saturday nights at 8 pm, as well as an open mic night on Mondays. A few weeks ago, Teavolve hosted a full Moroccan band complete with bellydancer.
And last but not least, did you know that Potbelly's by Camden Yards frequently has live musicians during the day? Stop in there during your lunch hour and enjoy some guitar sounds alongside your sandwich.
