Last week, I had the chance to visit Birds of a Feather in the Fells Point neighborhood of Baltimore, Maryland as part of a bachelor party. I know what you’re thinking, a Scotch bar for a bachelor party? It’s not typical but then again, neither was the bachelor. I, for one, wasn’t complaining. I’d heard about Birds of a Feather but never had the chance to visit and was glad we had it on our list of places to go that night.
I didn’t bring a camera but if you can imagine an upscale pub setting, put in an area of a Baltimore rowhome, you can imagine what it looks like inside. When you walk in, the bar, and it’s imposing wall of single malt and blended Scotch bottles, is to your right. To your left, along the wall, are some tall stools and tables. About twenty feet or so, there is a small hallway that leads to a back room area with large comfortable seats and tables. It’s a room that looks like it was designed for cigars and Scotch, though smoking indoors was banned a short time ago.
They have a wide selection of Scotches at very affordable prices. I don’t remember what they were but their list is available here and I can assure you that you will not be disappointed. We didn’t try anything on their menu but I imagine I wouldn’t have been disappointed there either.

Very friendly, not stuffy and certainly not snobby, and definitely a fun stop if you’re a fan of Scotch.
