Our Guests Say it best

I will definitely be a regular!

My very first time at this bar was amazing. The drinks were flowing and the food was amazing. We ended up sharing everything because it was so good! The atmosphere and decor are just perfect. I will definitely be a regular!

BEST place to drink and dine

Last night in Baltimore and little did we know that one of the absolute BEST places to drink and dine was right inside of our hotel! The cocktails and crab dip are a culinary delight! This is a don't miss if you're in the area!

- Beth R.

The Perfect Solution

I checked into Hotel Indigo a little too late to hunt for a place to eat. I was pleasantly surprised when I read the menu for Poets—the perfect solution for a hungry traveler with a love of good food. The decor was welcoming and the bartender was fantastic. This place is a gem!

My Favorite Spot

I live in Mt. Vernon, and among the plethora of choices I have, this is my favorite spot. It’s light and airy during the day, yet romantic and chic at night. Their cocktails are original, the service is quick, and they have live music.
