“Sit at the bar. It's more fun,” greeted our bartender, slightly smirking on a recent Tuesday night in Upper Fells Point. We had just walked into Cockey's, the new neighborhood corner bar that moved from Hollins Market and opened in the former Shed Row space in January. With only one person seated at the time, we bypassed the five unoccupied high-top tables and settled in at the bar. It did not take long to realize Cockey's makes a strong addition to the area, filling a void for Upper Fells Point customers in search of an instantly comfortable bar, lacking frills and pretentions, in walking distance.

Bar food is different from restaurant cuisine. Bar food is straightforward fare, more substance than flair. Think battered pickles and hot roast beef sandwiches. Cockey's Tavern, a bar with a handful of dining tables, does a good job dishing out solid, satisfying bar food. The tavern, located in a space formerly occupied by the Vietnamese restaurant Pho and, before that, Mencken's Cultured Pearl, pays homage to its West Baltimore locale. Black-and-white photographs of the area's old industrial buildings hang on the walls.

News of a closing is easier to swallow when it arrives with news of an opening. A new pub named Cockey's Tavern at Hollins is set to open as soon as Aug. 6 in the space that was the charming Vietnamese restaurant Baltimore Pho , which closed July 24. Jim Collins, the man who opened Baltimore Pho, was always open about his intentions. Not a restaurateur by trade, Collins is both a resident of and a developer in Hollins Market. Opening a restaurant in the long abandoned Cultured Pearl space was his way of bringing activity and interest back to the neighborhood.
