Old Line Cocktail & Wine Bar to Close at Cross Street Market

| February 21, 2022 | 0 Comments

Old Line Cocktail & Wine Bar will close at Cross Street Market at the end of this month. This story was first reported by Baltimore Business Journal.

With Cans closed and Old Line Cocktail & Wine Bar closing, there will be no drinks-only stalls in the market for at least a period of time.

Old Line Cocktail & Wine Bar ownership declined to comment on the closing. The bar is branded with Baltimore’s Old Line Spirits, which is co-owned by Arch Watkins who told Baltimore Business Journal:

“We’re naturally disappointed that the Old Line Cocktail and Wine Bar is closing down,” Watkins wrote in an email, “but we’re exploring other opportunities to potentially expand the brand in the city.”

Atlas Restaurant Group recently announced it is taking a larger role in leading the operations and marketing of Cross Street Market. The restaurant group declined to comment if it will be taking over either of the bars at the market.

Cans former space was recently painted black and red, refrigerators for the cans of beer have been removed, and the beer taps remain in place.

There are currently eight vacant stalls in the market including the larger spaces vacated by Rooster & Hen and Cans. In the past year and a half, vendors Annoula’s Greek Kitchen, Ono Poké, PhubsRice Crook, Rooster & Hen, Royal Farms Chicken, Southrn’ Spice, and Cans have closed at Cross Street Market.

New concepts added in that period of time include The Chicken Lab, Blowfish PokeWatershed, Atlas Fish Market, and Crepe Crazy.

Caves Valley Partners (CVP) is the controlling partner of Cross Street Market. CVP Partner Arsh Mirmiran told SouthBMore.com an empanada concept is coming to the former Ono Poké space. He also said discussions are underway for an Egyptian concept, as well as for a group of local radio stations to occupy one of the stalls.
