The Owl Bar was built in 1903 as part of the original Belvedere, and was known simply as the Bar at the Belvedere. Lined with spittoons, bookmakers, and rough talk, the bar was hardly a place for ladies and was open only to men. However, in the 1930’s with the institution of Prohibition the bar became more lax, and allowed women, as well as whiskey. The Owl Bar quickly became Baltimore’s most notorious speakeasy.
Currently open Wednesday-Saturday for curbside carry-out only.
