To Sir, With Love

To Sir, With Love

The venue at the corner of Bond and Aliceanna streets has housed some legendary music establishments, including Fletcher’s and The Get Down. It now houses Sir Duke Bar & Liquor Store. The place exudes an aura of nonchalant cool.

The bar is up front on the right, with several tables in the center and a casual lounge area on the left. Vestiges of its time as a music and dance venue remain, reflected in the artwork that adorns the walls.

The excellent, eclectic music selection on the sound system plays to this as well.

Walk toward the rear, and a back room contains shelves of hooch, available for purchase. A cool accent is the retro bicycle, built in as a support for the counter bar.

The service is friendly and unpretentious, and daily happy hour specials include everything from rail pours to wine…

…to sophisticated, upscale cocktails to “dirty shakes,” which include a little something extra (hello, booze!).

It’s a pleasant alternative to the rowdier Fells Point bar establishments a few short blocks away on Thames Street and Broadway. {Sir Duke Bar & Liquor Store, 701 S. Bond Street, Fells Point}
