Atlas Restaurant Group announced they will divide the former Fleming’s Prime Steakhouse in Harbor East into two new concepts.

The 10,000-square-foot building, which closed due to the pandemic, will soon be home to a steakhouse and cocktail bar that will open next year.

The first concept, a 30-seat upscale cocktail bar will host live jazz music 7 nights a week. 

The second, a 200-seat prime steakhouse will feature the largest wine cellar of any of Atlas’ restaurant portfolio.

This project will be Atlas’ largest financial investment in a single property, with construction expected to take one year to complete. 

 “We are excited to bring life to this space that has been sitting vacant since 2020 and provide guests with two exciting new options,” said Atlas Restaurant Group CEO Alex Smith in a statement. “We will continue to invest in this great city because we have a passion to create unique and exciting dining concepts that will attract visitors to our city, but also make locals proud to call Baltimore their home.

Smith said his restaurant group expects nearly 3 million guests to dine at its Baltimore City properties in 2023.

“Our investment and commitment to Baltimore will not just last a matter of days, months or years but it will span generations,” he said.

In September, Atlas will also reopen the Irish pub James Joyce in Harbor East. And in October, The Oregon Grille in Hunt Valley will reopen after renovations.

With the addition of the new concepts, Atlas Restaurant Group will own and operate 19 establishments throughout the Baltimore area.
