Owners of Baltimore's iconic Ottobar searching for a buyer to 'carry on the tradition'

Baltimore’s Ottobar is up for sale, raising questions about the future of the local music scene mainstay.

Officials with the Charles Village concert venue and bar announced in a social media post Friday that owners planned to hand the reins over to a new group in 2019.

An online real estate listing for the property billed it as a “rare opportunity to acquire a nationally recognized music venue.” The $1.25 million asking price includes the real estate, the liquor license, a seven-day live entertainment permit for all levels, furniture and sound equipment.

Messages requesting comment from Ottobar management and owners were not returned Monday.
