Best Gay Bar: G•A•Y Lounge

518 N. Charles St., (443) 438-5868,

G•A•Y, which opened in April, has quickly snuck into Baltimore as the new and necessary gay bar, and one that seems to take all kinds and host all kinds of events. And at a moment when it feels as though gay bars are on the decline in Baltimore, even with Flavor and the reimagined Baltimore Eagle opening up recently, G•A•Y serves to offer up a whole bunch of reasons to go: good food, drag brunch, drag shows, and occasionally sports separate from the ugh sports bar atmosphere. Oh, and the decor is like some decadent hang-out spot you see in a Kenneth Anger movie or Hercules & Love Affair music video.
