The venerable Dead End Saloon in Fells Point—which has been open since 1977—will be undergoing some renovations. Originally slated to start this weekend, the renovations will probably take place closer to the end of the month.
The dingy, but loveable dive bar (with delicious pub grub) will be getting all new bathrooms, an extended game room in the back (with skee ball!), a refubished Natty Boh fridge, a new tin ceiling and hardword floors, plus the long bar will be moved to the other side of the wall for extended space. All told, the renovations will close the bar for about five days.
Something tells me, though, that even with a little polish, Dead End's tattered charm will still remain.
