Baltimore’s Elevated Take on Food and Drink

A Sponsored Message from Visit Baltimore


Impress your attendees with a private event at one of these local hot spots.

Home to award-winning chefs, a growing number of craft beer and cocktail purveyors, and shops filled with small-batch, gourmet fare, Baltimore’s booming culinary scene makes giving your attendees a delicious dose of local flavor easy. Looking for a way to spice up the itinerary and create some unique networking opportunities? Get your group out of the conference room and into one of the city’s hip neighborhood bars or restaurants for a private event.

Magdalena: For Small Groups

Located within The Ivy Hotel in historic Mount Vernon, this intimate restaurant is a feast for the senses. One of Baltimore’s most gorgeous and sought-after settings, Magdalena boasts five different dining areas—the Garden Room, Courtyard, Treasury, Tasting Room and Wine Cellar. Executive Chef Mark Levy’s ever-changing, cross-cultural cuisine will take your guests on a culinary journey to Japan (think seared Hokkaido scallops and steamed Berkshire pork belly), France (foie gras sliders) and of course, Maryland (filet of Maryland rockfish with white and green asparagus, tomato hollandaise and caramelized shallots).

The Bygone: For Special Occasions

Perched on the 29th floor of Four Seasons Hotel Baltimore in Harbor East, your guests will feel like they’ve stepped back in time and into a roaring 1920s American social club. With floor-to-ceiling windows and a private balcony that looks out onto unbeatable views of the twinkling Baltimore skyline, The Bygone’s private dining room can accommodate up to 30 guests. Its signature bar is also a great place for your guests to mingle and network pre- or post-meal.

Topside: For Casual Lunches or Happy Hours

Hotel Revival’s Topside bar and eatery serves up fresh-caught seafood and a rotating selection of local craft beers next to 360-degree vistas of Mount Vernon and the Washington Monument. Bonus activity: Book one of the hotel’s three soundproofed karaoke rooms for some off-beat (and probably off-key) fun.

Sagamore Spirit: For Large Group Events

Treat your team to a whiskey-themed event at this historic Port Covington distillery. Book a guided tour of Sagamore Spirit and your attendees will learn all about the famed history of Maryland’s rye whiskey, see the 40-foot mirrored-finished copper column still, and taste three award-winning whiskies. Top it off with a private cocktail-making class, or a group bottling night where your guests will work side-by-side with Sagamore’s Processing and Distillation team.
