Hello World!

Bad Decisions is a critically-acclaimed, award-winning bar in Baltimore’s historic Fells Point. We serve craft cocktails, fine brewed beverages, and gourmet eats in plastic baskets. We offer the intimate feeling of a neighborhood bar of regulars. But with crowds as eclectic as our offerings, there is never any predicting who you may run into while here. We have an extensive drink menu, but all of our bartenders are very able to make you a drink you’ll love, based on the drinks you like.


There. We said it.

We’re kind of a big deal with bacon. Usually, you can unapologetically order an entire “basket of bacon” from the kitchen. We won’t tell your mother, your cardiologist, or your rabbi.

Monthly, we do a “Bacon Night” thing that a lot of people come to. It’s been on the TV - so you know it’s good. It’s not just piles of bacon though (although we’ll give you a moment with the thought …) - it’s bacon used in new and creative ways in dishes you might not expect.

Check our Events page to see when the next one is.

Owner John Reusing also keeps a varying selection of rare bottles on the top shelves. They aren’t budget selections mind you. But if you’re looking to splurge on some milky-smooth Scotch or aged spirit - see what he’s got tucked away.

Oh yeah, we have a Sunday and Monday brunch thing that happens. It starts at 11:00am with some bottomless drink offerings and a varying menu. So come do that sometime.

Thanks for reading up. We’ll see you soon!
