  • Small and loud. Perfect for a concert :)
  • All shows at The Sidebar are all-ages.
  • Baltimore's Best Bars 2012: Punk-rock venues are a dying breed in this country, so the Sidebar gets points automatically for supporting the cause."
  • Sidebar is the venue for the cop bar Kavanaugh's in HBO's The Wire, about Baltimore's crime!
  • Drinks are cheap and music is good.
  • One of my favorite music venues in Baltimore. Great bands, great drink prices, and there is usually close parking.
  • Nice close dive bar. All you need for happy hour venting. Also...if you need to find a lawyer
  • Cool low-key spot where heavy metal bands play
  • Tip big, and the bartenders will take amazingly good care of you. A true punk rockers paradise.
  • They don't serve food, but if you are generous to the bartenders, they'll be generous back
  • Small but lively
  • Place is Rad!
  • I come here to do what I call "comedy". Other people call it different things. Mostly negative things.
