Pictures: Baltimore's 50 best bars 2010
Fall always seems to usher in big changes on Baltimore's bar scene. New watering holes open and some old favorites close. It's a good time of year to take stock of Charm City's colorful nightlife -- from neighborhood dives to ritzy lounges. We've counted down the city's 50 best bars. Bottoms up!

No. 40 -- Metropolitan Coffeehouse and Wine Bar( Lloyd Fox, Baltimore Sun / February 18, 2005 )
While Metropolitan's sloppy, inattentive service can cripple a good night out, we keep coming back for this South Baltimore bar's wide-reaching beer and wine list. Like many Baltimore bars, Metropolitan has lots of wood and brick, and like many good Baltimore bars, the lighting is artfully dim. Abuse us, Metropolitan. We'll still be seeing you this weekend. -- Sam Sessa
