Bars in Charles Village


Select Local Merchants

Let’s be honest, if a restaurant isn’t beautiful on the outside, it’s in our nature to doubt how good it is on the inside. Look no further and doubt no more! Maxie’s Pizza Bar Grille has a beautiful exterior that is simply the beginning of very tastefully done décor. With dining options outside and in, as well as at the bar, diners have a few great options about where they eat and how their environment interacts with them. The big draw of Maxie’s isn’t just the building, though. Maxie’s Pizza Bar Grille offers great pizzas—either the whole pizza or by the slice—and loaded down with toppings! Diners can also get some great wraps, pastas, sandwiches and salads here, along with a large selection of entrees at dinner! If you’re in Charles Village and in the mood for Italian, check out Maxie’s!

While studying flute performance and classical dance at the University of Wyoming, Michelle Shaw's endeavors were hampered by constant back pain. She sought relief through massage therapy and yoga, and this holistic care soon developed into a passion, inspiring her to attend the Baltimore School of Massage. She now helps others revel in muscle relief at Mount Vernon Wellness. Within a private treatment room overseen by a serene painting of Buddha, she eases sports- and work-related injuries, which are often caused by repetitive motion, poor posture, and pole-vaulting over cubicles. To treat these ailments, she draws on an array of modalities such as Swedish, deep-tissue, and reflexology massage. She also employs traditional Thai-massage techniques, which incorporate pressure-point therapy, energy work, and yoga-like stretching to regain bodily balance.

At four stories tall, XS has plenty of room for surprises. Modern art hangs from the exposed brick walls in the deceptively large industrial building, where giant silver tubes stretch from hardwood floor to lofted ceiling and a sleek room with red-leather wall panels awaits discovery. On the ground floor, waiters weave around the wrought-iron staircase and stainless-steel tables bearing platters piled with sushi and Japanese fusion cuisine.

Every morning, these platters hoist breakfast items, including french-toast variations, goodie-stuffed omelets, and smoked salmon. By night, they carry stuffed maki rolls, kobe-beef burgers, and sweet-thai-chili tuna, as well as handcrafted cocktails. Nighttime is also when DJs spin hits, making for a combination nightclub-restaurant to rival CBGB’s, which of course stood for Consume Bacon, Get Bizzay.
