The owners of the Baltimore Eagle, the prominent local leather bar that closed last month amid a dispute with the managers of the establishment, have listed the building on a commercial real estate site in the hopes of finding a new operator–or selling the business altogether.

In Europe, the pace of life slows down in August, with businesses closing for the month and people going on holiday. Not so in Baltimore. This week, local restaurants are busier than ever, announcing new ventures, hosting collaborative dinners and more.
Here’s a look at what’s coming up:
We write about restaurants in the city a lot because we think they’re great and there’s so, so much out there to savor. Even with all the existentialist drama surrounding the Baltimore dining scene earlier this year, there’s still plenty of new projects and events worth exploring. In that same spirit of discovery, we are suggesting a trip out to Baltimore County for its Restaurant Week. Yes, really.
People were saddened to learn earlier this week that Parts & Labor, the Remington butchery and restaurant run by Spike Gjerde and Corey Polyoka, would be closing after dinner service on Aug. 5.
Well folks, the bar, at least, is going to stay open a little while longer, offering “beers & spirits aplenty,” a rep for Gjerde says. And there will be food, too.
Just as quickly as it closed, the Baltimore Eagle reopened late last week under the same ownership, but new management. While the bar was back up and pouring drinks on Thursday, one day after its former operators, 4 Crazy Guys, abruptly packed up and shut it down, owner Ian Parrish says it wasn’t until Friday that they drew a small crowd.
Baltimore is getting a well-deserved break in the weather this week, and it couldn’t come at a better time, as local restaurants gear up for Restaurant Week, festivals and fundraisers.
Here’s a look at what’s on tap.
