1653863_499588216826962_441588062_nCockey’s has completed their move from Hollins Market to Fells Point, opening Cockey’s Fells Point Restaurant and Bar last Thursday at 1901 Gough St.  The father son duo of Bob (Father) and Robert Cockey (Son) spent the last 6 months performing a complete renovation of the former Shed Row, which had been open since the prohibition.  Bob Cockey opened his first Baltimore restaurant in 1969, launching Cockey’s Fells Point 45 years later.

The new restaurant features large new windows facing Gough St. and Wolfe St., a large new hardwood bar with televisions above and high top tables each featuring fresh flowers and candles.  The walls feature black and white pictures of Baltimore before the Great Baltimore Fire of 1904 and the bathrooms feature Baltimore-themed murals.  New hardwood floors and trim have been installed throughout.

They are open for lunch and dinner seven days a week and the menu features starters, soups, seven different types of salad, 10 different sandwiches, and fresh dough pizzas.  Prices range from $4-$11.  The menu also features 10 beers on draft, and have an extensive menu of bottled beers, signature cocktails, fresh fruit crushes, and wines.  They will sell package goods seven days a week including 30 packs of National Bohemian.

“We want to bring a Downtown dining experience to a neighborhood bar,” said Robert Cockey.

photoRobert and Bob invited me in last night to check out the new place and sample some of their menu items.  You could tell the area was definitely buzzing about the new restaurant.  They told me about regulars they’ve already gained, the large crowds they received on Friday and Saturday night, and a $100 tip from one patron to thank them for coming to the neighborhood.

I got to sample a ‘Grapefruit Man Crush,’ a grapefruit crush using Geoge Dickel white whiskey instead of vodka, very delicious.  They brought me their Buffalo Chicken Flatbread, French Onion Soup, Soup Du Jour Chili, and their Hawaiian Pizza.  All very good, and great sized portions.

“We invite all of our old customers from Hollins Market, and welcome all of our new neighbors with open arms,” said Bob Cockey.
