VENUE With cheap beer, traditional pub food and a laid-back attitude, The Crease is a good place to chill out if you're not into the club scene.
Where -- 523 York Road, Towson
Call -- 410-823-0395
Notable -- This longtime Towson staple is a popular late-night hangout for college students. It is one of many affordable drinking spots in downtown Towson.
Vibe -- The atmosphere is that of your typical hole-in-the-wall pub, with dark lighting, a dank feel and lots of wood. It's easy to blend into the background if you choose, but with three bars and plenty of space, you won't feel as claustrophobic.
Crowd -- Mainly twentysomething college students on most nights, especially weekends. It's ladies' night on Wednesdays, so it sometimes gets a little crowded and a little crazy.
What to wear -- Throw on something casual, such as shorts, sandals and a T-shirt, and you'll be good to go.
