Stalking Horse in Federal Hill Drops Whiskey Hill Name

| July 27, 2017 | 0 Comments

Last November, Stalking Horse at 26 E. Cross St. in Federal Hill rebranded its first floor as Whiskey Hill, however the name change caused confusion and a slump in business, according to the restaurant team. Now, all three floors of the restaurant will once again be named Stalking Horse.

Besides changing the name back and adding some new signage, nothing else will change at Stalking Horse. The renovations that took place for Whiskey Hill will stay in place. This includes the reclaimed wood accents and the nine-foot wooden American flag. The large whiskey collection and new menu items are staying as well.

The three floors at Stalking Horse will continue to have different themes at night. Country, 80s, and 90s music will play on the first floor, and DJs will be on the second and third floors playing more current music.

“I think we confused people by having two names,” said building landlord Marc McFaul. “People were looking for and wanted Stalking Horse. Since changing back, business is already starting to pick up.”
