Set in the Charles Village neighborhood of Baltimore, Ottobar opened in 1997 and has established itself as a go-to place for drinks and live music. The main floor houses the concert area with a larger bar toward the back. You’ll get a mix of indie rock, hard rock and metal bands gracing the stage, as well local artists. Plus, there’s an upstairs area that hosts karaoke, trivia nights, comedy, poetry readings, film screenings, dance parties and more with a fully stocked bar. You’ll find a few scattered tables and couches, and can shoot a game of pool if you like.
