1204 W. Mount Royal Ave., (410) 669-6686
Remember when daytime drinking just sorta happened? Now, you’ve somehow become a grownup with more bills, headaches, and worries than free time, and you’ve got to plan that shit. Enter the Mount Royal Tavern, which not only opens at 10 a.m. but has the affordable drink prices and ornery clientele you want when you absolutely, positively need to forget about how much your next paycheck is already spoken for. And it only accepts cash, so not only can you get into your cups by 5 p.m., you can preemptively cut yourself off—and not wake up the next day with a credit card hangover on top of the booze one.
