The conversion of a modest rowhouse into a bar inherits a problem with no obvious solution: What to do with such a limited space? These types of bars often rely on cosmetic tweaks like fresh paintjobs or new light fixtures to convey change. The results are usually improvements - recent examples include Shotti's Point in Riverside, Canton's Silks and Cockey's in Upper Fells Point - but rarely do these new businesses feel like drastic transformations. Bar Liquorice is a recent exception.

Although hookah lounges are becoming more popular, smoking flavored tobacco through water pipes creates hazardous concentrations of indoor air pollution, according to a new study from the Institute for Global Tobacco Control at the Johns Hopkins University's Bloomberg School of Public Health. In fact, airborne particulate matter and carbon monoxide levels exceeded those found in restaurants and bars that allowed cigarette smoking, the study found. "There is a mistaken notion that because the tobacco smoke is drawn through the water, it's somehow cleaner or not as bad," Patrick Breysse, a professor in the department of environmental health sciences and the study's senior author, said in an interview.

Since it's been more than a decade since Bill Murray did his scathing lounge singer act on "Saturday Night Live," it may be safe to come out strongly in favor of lounges. At these magical places, noun blends seamlessly with verb. After all, what do you do at a lounge? You lounge. They're like waiting rooms with better conversation and mixed drinks.An old favorite of dyed-in-the-wool lounge lovers, Johnny Dee's has been around. A great lounge needn't have great food, but among Johnny Dee's charms is a pleasant and inexpensive menu.

Not everybody is into the high-velocity conversations and dance floor moves at Warfields, but those who want an alternative to that club's bright neon and happy noise need not even leave the Sheraton Towson.Only a glass hotel wall separates Warfields from its more sedate sister club, Carnegie's Lounge (a k a the Lobby Bar)."We have an older, more business-type crowd at Carnegie's than at Warfields," says bar manager Lisa Dow. "We're quieter and so it's easy to hold a conversation here."Although not named for anybody in particular, it doesn't hurt that Carnegie's Lounge may remind you of the business acumen of Andrew Carnegie.

Three people were stabbed in two separate incidents outside a Towson hookah lounge Saturday night, Baltimore County police said Monday. Police learned of the stabbing while responding to a fight at Burke Avenue and York Road around 2 a.m., when one of the people involved said their friend had been stabbed earlier outside the Towson Nights Hookah Lounge Cafe. Police said the victim took himself to a hospital for treatment of non life-threatening injuries. The department said two other men — both 22 years old — were stabbed during a separate incident, just after 3:30 a.m. The victims were leaving the same hookah lounge when they were confronted by suspects, "who instigated a verbal argument that escalated to a stabbing," police said.

The Baltimore County Council approved legislation Monday requiring coaches and other recreation volunteers who work with children to undergo background checks, a move officials said is meant to protect children from sexual predators. The county is the only jurisdiction in the Baltimore region that does not run background checks on volunteers for government-sponsored recreational activities. Council members passed the measure unanimously, giving county officials until July 2015 to work out details of a policy on the checks.

Hookah lounge owners in Baltimore County told the County Council on Tuesday that proposed legislation to make them close earlier would put them out of business. Council members are weighing a proposal by County Executive Kevin Kamenetz that would require the lounges to close at 8 p.m. on weeknights and 9 p.m. on weekends, restrictions Kamenetz says would prevent neighborhood disruptions and curb illegal activity. At a Tuesday work session, the council heard from business owners who said they are being unfairly targeted and from residents who say lounge patrons wreak havoc in their neighborhoods.

Baltimore County Executive Kevin Kamenetz proposed legislation Tuesday that would mandate county hookah lounges close at 8 p.m. on weeknights and 9 p.m. on weekends, hours before their current early-morning closing times. "This is another common-sense effort to protect the quality of life in our communities," Kamenetz said in a statement.  "The legislation strikes a balance in that it allows these businesses to continue to operate in the same manner that local retail cigar and tobacco stores operate, but it prevents them from operating as late-night entertainment venues disrupting our neighborhoods.

That neon Natty Boh guy up on the hill in Canton has a little something more to wink about these days. He's got a brand-new hangout named in his honor. The Natty Boh Lounge recently opened on Conkling Street, right above the Canton Station bar. And the place is packed with Bawlmer history. Co-owner Darren Petty, a lifelong Canton/Highlandtown resident, says the building itself was built in 1886, around the same time the National Bohemian brewery was built across the street. In fact, he says, it was the boardinghouse for some of the Natty Boh brewmasters.
