"Baby Guinness" shots at Finnegan's Wake in 2011.

First it was Dark Horse Saloon, then it was The Horse With No Name and now it's closed.

The Horse With No Name and its adjacent video-game hangout Baltimore Bar Arcade in Canton are no longer open,  general manager Amber Nolan confirmed this afternoon. The last day of operation was "about two weeks ago," Nolan said.


The tandem bars first opened in June 2011 as Irish pub Finnegan's Wake and Dark Horse Saloon. After ownership changes, Finnegan's Wake closed in March 2012. Last year, the former Irish pub filled its space with arcade game consoles and rebranded itself Baltimore Bar Arcade.

Nolan said she had heard a Phillips Seafood restaurant was taking the property over, but Phillips Seafood corporate director of marketing Michelle Torres said Wednesday afternoon that the rumor was not true.
