The new Remington boîte WC Harlan (400 W. 23rd St.; no phone) is Baltimore’s coolest bar, but it's a challenge to locate. No website, telephone, or general information is publicly listed (there aren't even pictures of this place), so owners Matt Pierce, of local band Big in Japan, and writer Lane Harlan rely on word of mouth to keep their charmingly mismatched chairs filled. Walk down the block of empty lots east of Howard Street until you reach a black door that reads Enter. Inside, the expansive, industrial-chic space serves craft beer and cocktails (from $6) to a well-dressed crowd of musicians and graduate students.
