No. 100: Dougherty's
Attracting patrons from the neighborhood and the nearby colleges, Dougherty's Pub has 15 beers on draft and the typical happy hour specials patrons have come to expect in Baltimore. But it also has character and heart, which can be seen on the wall filled with works from local artists, free of charge.
