Best Good Time: The Black Hole

322 N. Franklintown Road, (443) 653-2050

Formerly Levels, the Black Hole is, as Devin Allen told City Paper earlier this year, a place where the bartenders aren’t beholden to any real rules when it comes to giving you that shot you ordered: “They not real bartenders, so they pour you big ass shots. Like, a cup of water is a shot and you just be drunk as shit!” Along with occasional events like Sip N Paint and a strong bar food menu (shrimp tostadas, crab ball sliders, BBQ salmon), the Black Hole’s a whole night of food and fun. If you don’t trust us, then here’s another ringing endorsement from Allen: “You catch up with your friends and like people you grew up with, and they play all the hood music but you get this certain type of realness that you can’t get downtown, you can’t get any other place—and you get drunk as shit.”
