More Information


Join Professionals in the City for a fun bar crawl in Baltimore’s funky Fells Point. Named for the Englishman who founded a ship-building company here in 1726 that would go on to produce the famous Baltimore Clipper ships, Fells Point is a spirited waterfront community in perpetual celebration of Baltimore’s British nautical roots. The bar crawl will stop at four of Fells Point’s most unique watering holes. Along the way, enjoy the 18th- and 19th-century homes and storefronts – most were once one of the “three Bs”: boarding houses, brothels or bars – along streets with names like Shakespeare and Fleet. Even though this bar crawl is taking place in the 21st century, the neighborhood’s visage has remained largely unchanged for the past several centuries.

The planned stops for this bar crawl are: 

  • The Horse You Came In On Saloon, “Baltimore’s original watering hole.” Legend has it that “The Horse” was a favorite watering hole for the great American author and poet Edgar Allan Poe. The night of his mysterious death he was seen drinking at what is now The Horse You Came In On Saloon. His presence is still felt throughout the establishment. The Horse is a great starting point for our bar crawl. The Horse Specials: 2 for 1 Miller Light bottles; 2 for 1 rail drinks
  • The thoroughly modern Green Turtle. Equal parts sports bar and casual restaurant, The Green Turtle combines the best of both into a different kind of neighborhood gathering place, where friends and family can gather to grab a bite, watch the game, or just enjoy a beer together in a lively atmosphere. In addition to being a great stop on our bar crawl, it’s a sports fan’s dream. With TVs everywhere – including flat screens in every booth – there’s not a bad seat in the house. _Green Turtle Specials: $5 burgers, $4.00 16 oz. rail drinks, $2.25 domestic bottles _
  • Leadbetters, opened in the 1960s on Thames Street and named after Huddie Ledbetter, also known as "Leadbelly.” Leadbetters has been the hang out of people looking for a quaint, scruffy, comfortable place to meet with friends for good entertainment and partying, and it is equally a comfortable place to stop in on our bar crawl. _Leadbetters Specials: $3 domestic draft _
  • Max’s Taphouse, legendary for having Maryland’s largest selection of local and imported beer. Max’s features expert bartenders, a well-portioned, above-average Pub menu, a superb sound system, more than 17 TVs playing the latest sporting events, a pool table, and a comfortable, quality atmosphere for our bar crawl.
