  • This bar is great for my favorite game: "homeless or hipster?"
  • Baltimore's Best Bars 2012: "There may not be a more beloved dive in all of Baltimore than MRT. ... Dont forget to the hit the ATM first, as MRT only accepts cash".
  • My first drink was here. Barkeep offered a pair of cherry bombs for my birthday. Wisely saved them. Great place and will bring my friend.
  • Cash only. Great vibe. Solid neighborhood bar.
  • CASH only but a great Baltimore bar
  • It's dingy, dim dcor under a ceiling of Sistine Chapel wallpaper with original MICA artworks dangling from shellacked exposed brick walls and Sinatra dialed up on the jukebox says it all.
  • Best bar in town!
  • Don't fuck with Mick. Cash only.
  • Look up. The ceiling should remind you of a famous Michaelangelo painting.
  • Great place to drink and socialize. One of my favorite places.
  • The drinks here are STRONG
  • The drinks are strong
  • Cash only dive. Reminds me of what a corner bar in Baltimore should be.
  • Always nice to see Bob and John
  • The perfect dive bar for the art student crowd. Wear your skinny jeans, order a Natty Boh (translation:NATIONAL BOHEMIAN) and dont forget to look up and check out the unexpected ceiling mural.
  • Great drink prices! Not great bathrooms...
  • Don't drink the water.
