It wasn't great before the pandemic, but ever since there's basically nothing to eat late night.

If it's after 8 or 9 PM there is almost nothing available in this city and honestly it's pathetic. You don't get this problem in DC, Philly, or NYC.

MetaPhysic16 t1_j126vdd wrote

DC has a 24 hour spot on the weekend called the Diner. You can get chocolate chip pancakes on a Friday night or technically early Saturday morning. I love that place!


Angdrambor t1_j1069td wrote

NYC or Philly has a lot more people to feed, so it's worth staying open later. It scales with population density.


KevinOMalley t1_j10lvv2 wrote

NYC has 8 million+ people. Why would you ever compare it to Baltimore? Of course there's going to be better stuff there.


Gitopia t1_j10vr8d wrote

There's 20 times as many people sure. Don't think anyone is expecting to find 1000 places open at 2am in Baltimore. But it would be nice to have like 6 that aren't gas stations?

strewnshank t1_j10i57e wrote

Back in the day, the papermoon diner was one of the only places open really late....not sure if they still are though. I worked at a recording studio near it and we'd go there often after our sessions that ended late.


todareistobmore t1_j10jtxd wrote

Paper moon hasn't been 24 hours in at least 10 years, and IIRC they'd even stopped staying open til 3am before the pandemic. They're not open late even for a regular dinner shift anymore, though.


LurkerOrHydralisk t1_j11hclq wrote

Also their food has never been good. At least not in the last 20 years.


strewnshank t1_j11vt8m wrote

In 98-02 when i was in the area, it was reasonable, with bonus points for availability and a pretty cool group of people working and eating there.

I don't disagree, but exactly what do you want there to be to do late night?


DONNIENARC0 t1_j0ziyx6 wrote

Idk, maybe just be able to get a drink after ~1:30AM and some pancakes afterwards if the mood strikes. A diner would be cool, I don't think there's much in the way of late night food in the Canton area except for a pizza spot or two, and the Taco Bell.

I guess the 2AM cutoff time is more of a maryland thing than a baltimore thing, though?


ravens2131 t1_j0zogxt wrote

It’s 2AM as is most states


DONNIENARC0 t1_j0zpa5w wrote

Yeah, most places seem to do last call around 1:30 so they can actually have people out the door by 2 in my experience, though.

If you're at a small dive bar or something that probably doesn't apply though.


ravens2131 t1_j0zphs9 wrote

That dive probably won’t risk their license so they can serve after 2


PoopIsAlwaysSunny t1_j0zqemi wrote

Yep. Dives do last call at 1:15 and lock their doors with curtains closed any 1:45, and any regulars they like can stay later


timmyintransit t1_j14qjf0 wrote

Or if you're Club Charles, back in the day, your last call was like 12:30/12:45 because the bar time was in the Atlantic time zone or something


DONNIENARC0 t1_j0zpm4k wrote

Oh yeah for sure, I'm just saying you could probably still get a beer there up to 1:45 or right up to the cutoff point or somethin since they got a smaller crowd to worry about.

Do they still stay open late? I stopped by there sometime in October for late night food and they were fully closed up, lights off. This was at 1:30am on a Friday/Saturday night too.

As a recent transplant from NYC, this is probably one of the hardest things to deal with for me. I'm not used to everything closing by 9/10pm except 7-11.

S-Kunst t1_j112876 wrote

Baltimore is not a cruise ship. Restaurants work on the concept that there is a profit to be made or else they don't stay in business. Getting labor to work late night would be more expensive than during the day. One would have to put the restaurateur in an area they could be certain that it would draw a crowd. Even Sip & Bite is no longer open in the wee hours. So there will need to be some location and incentive to be open.

For too long, Baltimore City (and Maryland state) government(s) have had no urgency for economic policy and infrastructure investment geared toward the city's overall population growth and stimulating business demand. As a result, there's a drag on the presence of amenities in this city; and in my opinion, this plays out most vividly in the food sector, both retail and restaurants. Grocery stores don't want to come here & restaurants open today, go out of business tomorrow, and have early closing hours in the interim. It's all pathetic given the city's beauty, potential, and youthful vibe---there could be a booming night time economy here.

All that said, not sure where you live but American Pizza & Wings has really good (non NY-style) pizza...closes at 1AM weekdays, 2AM wknds. Silver Moon 1 is open till 3AM every day...I've heard from a friend that it's good but never personally had it.

And cool, hip new restaurants open every other day. Do you even live in Baltimore? It’s a global “post Covid” adjustment. This issue is happening downtowns across the nation.


A_P_Dahset t1_j12tq5a wrote

>Dude a giant just opened up in Locust point last week.. Northwood Commons by Morgan got a Lidl…they opened the Streets Markets in Greektown and Charles Village a few years ago.

I do "even live in Baltimore" and your comment supports my point. These are all stores that opened up in White L neighborhoods where population is growing, with the exception of Lidl which opened up in NE Baltimore near a growing university campus, where there is a middle-income black population. Meanwhile food deserts abound in East and West Baltimore where the city is shrinking.

Do you track that lack of access to fresh food is a major issue in Baltimore City? At the same time that the Giant was opening in Locust Point, Price Rite in Pigtown was announcing that it would be closing down at the end of this year, much to the community's disappointment. In Cherry Hill, residents are working to create a food co-op because there's no grocery store in the area. The city administers a whole Grocery Store Tax Credit program in an effort to lure operators into the city and it's still a struggle.

>And cool, hip new restaurants open every other day. Do you even live in Baltimore? It a global “post Covid” adjustment. This issue is happening downtowns across the nation.

New restaurants open every other day...and how many survive over the long haul? How much more of a shot at success would restaurants have in a city with a growing population, which translates to a bigger customer base, more demand, and more dollars circulating?

I made no mention of downtown. Poor economic policy and shrinking population are citywide problems that pre-existed COVID. Yes, the pandemic wiped out businesses and dampened demand. In our current post-pandemic recovery mode, people want things to do and places to go---cities with growing populations will have an easier time in providing such amenities.


DfcukinLite t1_j1331zv wrote

Northwood isn’t the El nor is Greektown. Not that that changes the fact the several different grocery store chains have opened here within 5 years where you said “none want to come to Baltimore”. Clearly that isn’t true.


A_P_Dahset t1_j14n0bb wrote

I noted that Northwood isn't the L; Greektown is close enough. Nowhere did I state about grocery stores that [absolutely] "none want to come here," so I don't know why you quoted that.

Decipher the nuance: again, in a shrinking city, grocery stores are choosing to operate in select areas, particularly those that happen to be growing, which bodes better for profitability. Within a one-mile radius of Canton Crossing you can find Safeway, Sprouts, Harris Teeter, Target, and Di Pasquale's Marketplace; in Cherry Hill and Sandtown, nothing. Grocery store operators do not want to come here in the numbers that we wish they would; the food deserts of East and West Baltimore, and city gov's tax credit to induce operators to the city reflect this fact. Ultimately, these are for-profit businesses in a free market, so they make location decisions accordingly; it is what it is. I imagine they would find a growing and more economically competitive Baltimore, more attractive.

Two things can be true at once: grocery stores opened up in more affluent, growing neighborhoods, while less affluent, shrinking neighborhoods do not have as many and struggle to attract grocery stores. Not sure what the confusion is here.


DfcukinLite t1_j14tnl7 wrote

The city isn’t shirking. It’s a mass exodus of former low income residents. The city has done nothing but rise in median income over the last 10 years. Number of households have increased, but the number of families has decreased.

Because you your original point was grocery stores don’t want to come here. They’re here and they do open up as evident by them several very recent grocery store openings in various parts of the city.

Yes, no shit. Why would any business open up where it isn’t profitable. Location matters with everything.

Cherry Hill has options. I know because my grandmother lives there. I take her to the grocery stores nearest. They also have access to fresh produce and such at the Cherry Hill Shopping Center. And there are options for people in Sandtown as well.

You’re now moving into moving goalpost territory. We weren’t talking about food deserts. You went on some BS rant and I called you out on the plot holes in your narrative. You then tried moving goalposts and gaslighting. So that where the confusion came from. Below I’ve copied and pasted your direct quote to help with your confusion:

I'm not the one confused or ranting, but I'm sure you do fancy yourself as having "called out" something. The goalposts haven't moved; keep up. I cited weak economic policy and population loss as factors in Baltimore's relative lack of amenities, and simply used the food sector (i.e., restaurants and grocery stores) as an example, given the title/theme of this thread. Accordingly, food deserts are an indicator of the availability of grocery stores (again, one of the amenities that I originally cited), as the most common outlet for fresh food, though of course one can have other options.

In raw numbers, the city is shrinking on account of a mass exodus of low income residents. There's ample civic discussion about the ongoing loss of residents, as I'm sure you're aware. The population was lower in 2020 than in 2010, and lower in 2021 than in 2020. Since 2010, there's been a negligible (1%) increase in # of households on account of single, higher-income new residents moving in. Ideally, many of the people who are leaving would be able to stay and contribute to the city growing (in terms of both raw numbers and households), assuming they saw some measure of value in remaining in the city, which isn't the case at the moment.

As I recall, a late night place was told by the city to close by a certain time (apologies for the FOX45 link but every other site was paywalled) in part because of how many violent incidents have happened near there at night (nevermind it's a shitty joint with a shitty owner that overcharges drunk people for shitty pizza).

If it weren't for the real and perceived public safety issues in the city, the demand for late night food would be there and the labor market would probably respond accordingly.


moderndukes t1_j10awgu wrote


addctd2badideas t1_j10q42z wrote

Their main source was the owner of the joint so at the least, they didn't get the other side of the story and took him at his word, which is shitty journalism and not a bit surprising. Though a non-sourced testimonial from a random redditor also might not pass a credibility test, it's certainly more believable than anything that network puts out.

Even if the piece is skewed, it still exemplifies the unintended consequences of trying to have a non-alcoholic establishment for late night food when there's both legitimate and non-legitimate perceptions of the city being a violent place.

Pandemic really ruined a lot. Broadway Diner no longer being open 24 hours every day is brutal (used to love going there after getting off work late or some weekday drinking). There's the Korean places in Station North that are usually open after the bars close but the service is pretty spotty.

It's a vicious cycle- less people going out because nothing is open late, but nothing is open late because less people are going out on weekdays.

It’s awful. Papermoon changed owners and closes earlier now, Sip & Bite did a 180 for some reason and isn’t even open past like, what, 7 or 8 now? There’s NoS in Mount Vernon which is awesome but that’s about all I can think of. You gotta order takeout/delivery generic pizza and wings and fast food from Grubhub or something if you want anything outside of Royal Farms.

Much agreed. Nothing decent is ever open late.

You dare not order from a McDonald’s or Taco Bell. It’s usually busy af already with customers.

Which is crazy because this is one of the best food cities overall IMO it’s just everything closes early

Baltimore's food scene in general is pretty poor compared to other cities unless you really really like crab based food.


boarbar t1_j12mn40 wrote

Correct. It’s just not a great food city overall.

Y’all must not go to Double T’s or Diners that stay open 24 hours.


lsherida t1_j10n9nu wrote

The Double T in Catonsville hasn't been open 24 hours in years.


fnkdrspok t1_j10nen0 wrote

Besides the point, for one, there are tons of diners around Maryland. Two, there is more than one location for Double T’s


lsherida t1_j10nulg wrote

None of which are open 24 hours, and none of which are in Baltimore. Though the Catonsville one is close enough, hence why I singled it out.

I remember when they did, but they’re not 24 hours anymore.
