Looking for a place to kick back and relax while in Inner Harbor? This is it! The ambiance is amazing! Sip on a cocktail or enjoy a bite to eat as you enjoy the view. You will find this gem inside the Royal Sonesta.

Nice setup - looks line a den or library. Couches and comfy chairs allow you to relax with a group or by yourself. Bartender was very nice. Prices are what you expect for any hotel bar. They did not have live music the night we were there (a Friday) but someone said they do on Saturdays.
