The oldest continually operated Saloon in North America dating back to the late 1700s. The only Licensed alcohol establishment in Maryland to exist before, during, and after prohibition. The Horse you Came in on Saloon has been at the heart of Baltimore's local live music scene for over five decades. Hosting over one-thousand live music performances per year, you're certain to catch some great local live acoustic tunes on during your stay. Offering a full lunch and dinner menu featuring a combination of classic pub fare, south of the border favorites, and local crab-centric items such as our Crab Pretzel, and Angus Certified Philly Crab Cheesesteak. The portions are generous, so come hungry. Local legend has it that "The Horse" was a favorite drinking spot for the talented American author and Poet, Edgar Allan Poe. The facts around Mr.Poe's death remain a mystery; however it has been suggested and believed by many that The Horse You Came In On was his last stop before his passing. Through the years many employees & patrons alike have experienced what they believe paranormal activities at the hand of Mr.Poe (some employees, going as far as resigning from their duties). The Horse is the largest on premise Jack Daniel's Bar in the state of Maryland. Per square foot, the most Jack Daniel's is consumed within our four walls than any other pub, saloon, or tavern in the WORLD. Check out our Jack Daniel's Club with over Five Hundred Members and or try one of our Home-Made Jack Daniel's Infused spirits. We welcome you to check us out, grab a cold beer, try some Maryland crab dip and enjoy live local music in our homey & Historical atmosphere. Open at 11 A.M. Daily for Lunch and Live Entertainment, saddle up & stay a while.

located in historic Fells Point in a building dated from the late 1700's. Something different! Bourbon lovers may purchase a bottle that is kept for the customer on premises!

Should come back here more often. They have 4 bars inside. One is like a jack Daniels bar. One has live music? One pretty shiny glowing. And the other one is a standard bar. I think it’s one of the oldest in town too? Circa...More

The draft beer was on the warm side and they had 2 different music genres playing at the same time. We weren't able to find a table where you just heard one song playing. It was quite obnoxious. Drink proves were higher than they should...More

Old bar with a lot of cool signs, nice bathrooms, saddles for seats up at the bar, live music daily starting at 1pm. Good place to stop and wet your whistle if you're in the area.
