Baltimore is one of my favorite East Coast cities. So with that in mind, here are a couple of things to look forward to next year.
In early 2017, the Sagamore Pendry Baltimore will open at Fell’s Point inside the historic Recreation Pier. More than 100 years old, Recreation Pier was once a dance hall and gathering place for immigrants who came to the United States through Fell’s Point, once the second largest entry point for the nation. The hotel will be the first East Coast opening for the Pendry brand, featuring a pool, ballroom, whiskey bar and courtyard decorated with sculpture work. www.pendryhotels.com/baltimore
Also in early 2017 in Baltimore, one of the country’s great whiskey cities, Sagamore Spirit will serve rye whiskey right in the heart of the city. Sagamore Spirit (www.sagamorespirit.com) will soon be made in Baltimore from Sagamore spring water at a waterfront location. A true Baltimore product, this spirit is worth the trip for a taste.
