Lounge locales

Midnight Sun

Baltimore's lounge scene might pale in comparison with Washington's, but there are a few places where the well-dressed set come to sip fancy cocktails, chat and soak in some dance music.

Red Maple

For nearly 10 years (an eternity by club standards), Red Maple has been the city's primo destination for lounging. The firepits, dim lighting and rear dance area give Red Maple a dark, enchanting vibe. The mixed drinks are solid, the service isn't bad and the DJs are typically some of the best you'll see in Charm City. Some of the best times to drop by are during their weekly events, which include Shanta, Moog and Always Dope.

Eden's Lounge

Eden's Lounge has a little something for everyone. An average week could include live jazz, DJs and dance parties. Be sure to dress sharp – the folks at Eden's Lounge don't mess around.

13th Floor

Go for the view, stay for the drinks. With stunning sightlines, decent cocktails and regular live music, The 13th Floor is a solid go-to. The service often leaves something to be desired, the space is crying out for an update, but you can't beat the location. On Saturday, a DJ spins Latin music, and things can get a little crazy.
