Wine Market Bistro To Close Its Dining Room in Locust Point

| March 14, 2018 | 0 Comments

Wine Market Bistro at 921 E. Fort Ave. will be closing its dining room with its last day of service this Saturday, March 17th. The bar area and liquor store will remain open after this date.

Owner Chris Spann, who has run the restaurant and business for the last 13 1/2 years, told he is not making any announcements at this point about what’s next, but said “there are a lot of possibilities.” Spann continues to have a lease on the space.

He also said he loves the South Baltimore locals who have supported Wine Market over the years.

Spann told the Baltimore Business Journal that numbers “weren’t where they needed to be” and that he decided against a revamp while the restaurant was still in business.

Wine Market will be offering bottles of select wines for $13 off until Saturday to honor 13 years of business. Wine Market sells more than 800 types of bottles of wine total.

Wine Market is located in a large first floor space in a former 64,625 sq. ft. industrial property which was redeveloped in the early 2000s and named The Foundry on Fort Avenue. Wine Market also has an outdoor patio.

This story was first reported in the Baltimore Business Journal.
