Mount Vernon Bar to Close “Sometime in April”

Share the News


Jay’s on Read just poured its last St. Patty’s Day pint. The Mount Vernon fixture announced Monday — as something of a Facebook afterthought — that it would be closing soon.

Myself, I’ve never been. But Baltimore Business Journal‘s associate editor was a regular patron, and she published a eulogy for the establishment. She describes it as “a cross between a piano bar, a gay bar, a neighborhood bar, and a lounge” where everyone is welcome.

If you’ve never been but you’re intrigued by the allegedly low-key vibe, there’s still time to patronize the place! It’s on W. Read Street near Park.
