Rye’s Historic Inspiration
Established in 2011, the Rye’s menu and aesthetic pay homage to its Fell’s Point location. This historic neighborhood has been home to some of the nation’s oldest and most revered saloons, and Rye wants to honor that piece of Baltimore’s past.
The bar is in the same location as the famed old Whistling Oyster, which had a reputation for attracting odd clientele—including ones not of this world.
The old manager at the Oyster has stated she knew ghosts lurked in the bar, given the numer of strange noises, missing objects, and other spooky incidents. Considering its location by the harbor, it’s possible these are simply soldiers and sailors trying to get another round before the last call.
The Rye has taken up residence in this same strange place, but who knows if a change of owners also meant a change of clientele.
The whole bar is an homage to a bygone era. With signature cocktails and decor designed to replicate the tastes of the Prohibition Era, this bar is the perfect place to come if you want to feel as though you’ve returned to the Baltimore of another century.
