The renovation of Cross Street Market may be stalled, but South Baltimore is getting a new German beer garden and restaurant.
Baltimore’s liquor board this week approved a liquor license for the Crossbar der Biergarten at 18 E. Cross Street, a project that has been in the works for four years.
The applicants sought to transfer the license of a business at 1015 S. Charles Street that is no longer open, Joey B’s Bar and Grille. The liquor board agreed, after hearing that the Federal Hill Neighborhood Association now supports the project.
With the license transfer approved, Crossbar is aiming to open by early March, in time for St. Patrick’s Day, with a menu featuring German beers and food.
The liquor board ruling came one day after city officials disclosed that Caves Valley Partners backed out of plans to renovate nearby Cross Street Market, scuttling plans for a $6.5 million makeover there.
