Maryland nightlife

Baltimore nightlife was once the province of sailors and stevedores, but its infamous strip of burlesque houses has faded to a few "gentleman's clubs." Thankfully, the Bay area now has far more savory options, from neighborhood pubs pouring handcrafted microbrews to hopping waterfront grills to the funky regional pastime of duckpin bowling. But if you visit the quieter Eastern Shore, plan to spend nights catching up on your book-club reading.
