According to folklore, The Red Star gained its name and reputation from sailors visiting Fell’s Point. They docked, lonely and water-logged, hoping to find some of the comforts of home. The sailors knew Fell’s Point was a good place to find a warm meal and a cold ale. Nautical red stars were painted on sidewalks leading sailors to find the comforts of home.
THE RED STAR WAS BORN
More recently, The Red Star expanded to a second location in the heart of Charles Village, a block away from the prestigious Johns Hopkins University. Today, The Red Star offers a home away from home for all neighbors, in a cozy space, with a relaxing atmosphere. The beverage program features a lively yet carefully-selected array of cocktails, martinis, beers, and wine.
