The Venue



October 06, 2005|By SAM SESSA

Fletcher's has two faces: a pool bar and lounge downstairs with flat-screen TVs and an upstairs concert hall that holds about 150. The place has three bars total -- two downstairs and one upstairs.

Where -- 701 S. Bond St., 410-558-1889

Web site --

Notable -- A series of defaced black-and-white pictures of celebrities (Elvis, Charlie Chaplin, etc.) lines the walls of one of the downstairs lounge areas. Most have pitchforks and goatees scribbled on them in Sharpie.

Vibe -- A little devilish, the colors of Fletcher's walls, stools, booths and tables are mostly black and red. One wall has a strip of fake flames stretching across it.

What to wear -- Jeans and a T-shirt goes for both men and women, with the occasional button-down. Be yourself here -- wear something you'd wear to a bar in Fells Point, not Federal Hill.

Crowd -- Local indie lovers, some post-punks and a peppering of random adults and high school kids.

Music -- Mostly local acts running the genre gamut, with national acts here and there. Some forthcoming shows include Derivative, Nautilus, As Seasons Fall, Anamide and Random Hero.
