Foursquare Tips

  • The door to get in is covered with stickers, the lights are dim, and the leather bar stools are cracked. It's a glorious place to have a drink, listen to music and chat with the bartender.
  • 2nd best bar in baltimore. but I am jaded.
  • Have a shot of Chartreuse.
  • A pickleback is a shot of Jack Daniels followed by a shot of pickle juice, preferably with hot sauce. Get over your squeamishness and order one.
  • Baltimore's Best Bars 2012: "Idle Hours combination of mood lighting, strong-but-affordable cocktails and eccentric regulars makes it a bar that must be experienced first-hand"
  • With its moody lighting and classy cocktails, it's an ideal destination after dinner.
  • Great place to end the night
  • Chartreuse shots
  • Best dive bar around, great lighting
  • Pickle backs!
  • The basil bourbon is fantastic and well priced.
  • Dogfish tap. I like this.
  • I'be been coming here for several years when I get to Balt; love this place!
  • The bartender is a condescending dick... Don't hangout here or at least don't tip him. Stephen Tyler wannabe!
  • Love the dark with twinkle lights vibe and old music from a record player. Not your typical fed hill bar, and I love that.
  • Have an espresso martini I've had
