One of Baltimore’s cocktail authorities sets up shop at B&O American Brasserie inside The Hotel Monaco Baltimore (stay here, by the way). Brendan Dorr is the bar’s lead bartender and founder of the Baltimore Bartenders’ Guild. Watching him shake and stir is kind of like watching an Olympic athlete compete in a sport you can only hope to understand. He’s makes school bus-yellow drinks from golden beet juice, whips up a handsome stout flip, and serves a memorable Mason jar filled with Line State punch for two. He’s even dreamed up cocktails to pair with dishes on the dinner menu. Don’t leave without trying a B&O Old Fashioned or the pit beef sliders.
