Bluegrass Tavern Closes in South Baltimore

| March 28, 2018 | 0 Comments

Bluegrass Tavern has closed its doors at 1500 S. Hanover St. in South Baltimore. Bluegrass made an announcement on February 23rd that it would temporarily close for rebranding, but Green Door Properties, the owner of the building, told that it is currently looking for a new operator.

Green Door Properties and partners ran the restaurant for many years before Will Sterling of Saturday Morning Café took over the business in Summer 2016. Sterling could not be reached for comment.

The two-story, 3,400 sq. ft. restaurant features a bar and dining room on both floors, and an outdoor patio. It was voted SouthBMore’s Best Overall Restaurant in 2015. Bluegrass was known for its bourbon, Roseda Farms Dry-aged Burger, charcuterie, exotic meats, and farm-to-table dishes.

Bluegrass joins a list of recent restaurant closures and changes in South Baltimore. Metropolitan in Federal Hill closed at the end of last year and is currently for sale; Regi’s American Bistro in Federal Hill will close on April 7th and is currently for sale; and Wine Market Bistro in Locust Point has closed its dining room, but its liquor store and front bar remains open. Wine Market will be announcing changes in the near future.
