No Idea Tavern cultivates a lively sports-bar atmosphere with craft beers, pizzas, burgers, chicken wings, and ample opportunities for watching football, baseball, hockey, and European Premier League soccer. There's a vast array of games and entertainment here—you can fill the bar with a danceable soundtrack from the Internet jukebox, challenge friends to games at the beer-pong table, or impersonate firemen at the pole in the lounge area. Meals such as crab pretzels, margherita pizzas, and cheesesteaks make for excellent tailgating fare as fans watch every Penn State, Jets, and Liverpool match. Brunches kick off weekend mornings with spreads of bloody marys, maple-syrup-drenched pancakes, and french toast.

Fine wine sometimes has a haughty reputation, but at its best, wine is a casual beverage to enjoy with friends?a shared experience in a bottle. Likewise, with its trendy, industrial decor, Silo.5% Wine Bar surrounds patrons with a setting that's both refined and unpretentious. Enormous floor-to-ceiling windows provide sweeping views of the outdoors, while the bright green accents and barstools add splashes of color to the concrete columns and exposed ductwork. Mezzanine-level seating overlooks the couches and swiveling armchairs on the ground floor. The sister restaurant of the award-winning 13.5% Wine Bar in Hampden, "Silo.5% Wine Bar is the kind of stylish place you want to dress up for, and people do," noted The Baltimore Sun, "but it's not essential."

One of the ground floor's more striking features is the collection of wall-mounted wine racks that extends beyond the length of the bar. These racks support a hefty number of wines from Silo.5%'s extensive list, which can include more than 30 options by the glass and more than 200 by the bottle. In addition to the perennial favorites, the wine list features less ubiquitous varietals from countries such as Greece and Austria. Not content with pouring wine and saving the corks to build a raft, the bartenders also craft classic and contemporary cocktails. When combined with the accommodating service, this diverse drink selection helped Silo.5% Wine Bar earn a spot on Baltimore magazine's 2013 list of the 25 Best Bars: New Favorites.

Of course, wine is best paired with food, so Silo.5% Wine Bar also curates an eclectic, ever-changing menu of upscale comfort foods. Shareable small plates showcase the variety of local and international inspiration, as in the tacos filled with pork belly braised in soy sauce. In every recipe, the kitchen strives to use sustainable ingredients such as grass-fed beef, freshly caught fish, and handmade pasta.

The Life of Reilly Irish Pub & Restaurant recreates the feel of an Emerald Isle public house. Framed jerseys decorate an exposed brick wall opposite the bar, above which flat-screen TVs showcase the latest international rugby matches. The bar itself stocks an extensive selection of Irish whiskeys, and its 10 drafts spotlight classic Irish brews such as Guinness and Magners Irish Cider.

But the kitchen's head chef, Dale Fields Jr., hasn't forgotten he lives in Baltimore. Alongside fish and chips and shepherd's pie, he underscores regional classics including a melt comprised of two mini crab cakes served on toasted english muffins. He rounds out his menu with other pub staples such as chicken quesadillas, beer-battered buffalo shrimp, and steak fries smothered with cheese and bacon.

Nestled on a street corner in the Federal Hill neighborhood, The RowHouse Grille beckons to passersby with homey feasts of freshly caught seafood, crispy fried chicken, and burgers. A misty, old-timey charm pervades the welcoming tavern, with wooden rafter beams overhead, dark varnished hardwood floors underfoot, and a silent 'e' defiantly hanging off the end of the word "Grill." Friendly tenders at two different bars pour out frosty glasses of beer from 16 taps, perfect for pairing with a plate of P.E.I. mussels or New England lobster rolls. Servers bear gifts of jerk chicken, gator po' boys, and English pea risotto, or cart out five-course sampler feasts of smoked cheese, seared scallops, bacon-wrapped steaks, and pear tartes.
