    Nice Alternative, Friendly Patrons!
    Club Charles is a very cool spot. Very art-deco, Miami rock vibe mixed with a futuristic TV studio feeling. Its classic, with a soul that is upscale. Mostly Caucasian patronage (and straight), with a variety of looks (African American, Asian, Latino etc) - without drama - an evolved, confident urban scene. Great prices, with themed drink specials. The jukebox is retro, with classic rock, avant-rock and alternative tunes, 'Beatles Hits', and even music from Milton Nascimento and James Brown. The upper level has vintage booths (with a second bar), and a darker 1940s' intimacy. The staff and busy Bartenders are friendly, and acknowledge you. When school's in - its more college-y, scenesters. Lots of 20+ Artists, Writers and Bohemian types. Try this place!

    Great place. "Family" atmosphere!
    Its a mostly African-American patronage, with a great pop/jazz/old school/blues jukebox. Mostly warm and friendly regulars, AC/heat/lighting, retro eclectic style (deer antlers, red lights, murals etc), and reasonable prices. They also have baked personal pizzas and bar snacks if you are hungry and want to grab a table. They have a pool table, and usually host a game of Spades as well. Mostly mature crowd 30-60, with a great following. The best bet for a Gay African American person visiting the city of Baltimore, as there is a staunch racial/uncomfortable vibe consistently in Mount Vernon - at places like Hippo, Central, Drinkery, Windup Space. Do yourself a favor, come to Gallery Bar and have a great time with a diverse group of people (professionals, blue collar, college-ages, mature), without the drama.
