A bunch of guys (my Fiance included) have 30th birthdays around the same time this year, late January to early February. They want to do a group party in Baltimore. Our one friend who unfortunately loves clubs, wants to go to the power plant, none of the rest of us do, we kind of loathe that idea, so I need good options people. Others want to go to bars in Fells Point or Canton. I think that may be a better option, but no one knows where to go.
So far they are thinking dinner at Brewer's Art.
They are normally a little cheap, but as this is a 30th they will be better, so entrees for dinner $20-30 and they will pay about anything for booze.
My question is where would you go? Is Brewers Art a good choice? Are there any good bars/lounges that are happening but a little more upscale that our club friend would enjoy? I was thinking of someplace like Ixia, in terms of atmosphere, but I can't remember their bar area being large.
If not what are the good areas that locals go out to that would be appropriate for this type of celebration that would be happening for a group of 20-30 somethings?
Thank you in advance from saving me from an awful night at the power plant...
