Low-key Mount Vernon bar and restaurant Tavern on the Hill will close this Sunday, the restaurant announced in a Facebook post.
“We want to take this time to thank everyone who made the Tavern a great neighborhood bar and kept us alive for our 5 years,” the post reads.
As a final act of customer appreciation, the restaurant will offer specials over the weekend: 20 percent off a food check on Friday; half off beer, wine, and liquor on Saturday; and to-be-determined food and drink specials coupled with the normal brunch deals on Sunday ($6 Bloody Marys, $4 mimosas) on Sunday.
Tavern On the Hill may never have had the accolades of some of the city’s big-name restaurants, but it’s the kind of eatery every neighborhood needs. Baynard Woods, my former colleague at City Paper, summed it up this way: “[I]t ain’t fancy. It’s solid. It’s everyday.”
Baltimore Fishbowl reached out to owner Lee Cohen for further comment. We’ll update this post when we hear anything.
