      New Owners. Not a gay bar anymore
      This bar is no longer a gay bar. It’s is bar is mostly white straight goth grunge community.

      Worst bartender service I have experienced
      Went tonight (Monday) and there were a total of about 30 patrons there. One bartender, sometimes two and they were totally ineffective and could not manage. Long waits to order and mixed up orders . Not only for me, but others as well. The last couple I saw ordered shots of tequila. But the bar was out of limes so they ordered White Russians. But the bar was out of cream. So they ordered something else that the bartender actually started making and then had to stop as he did not have all the ingredients. Finally, they just ordered Rum & Cokes to get something to drink. I actually left a tip of $0. I can count the number of times I have done that on one finger. Hopefully this was an unusual event tonight. But I won't be going back to find out.

      Horrible excuse for a gay bar
      They treat gay men with disdain. Only a source of cash. Women run around the place as they please and abuse everyone with their "straight" male friends. We deserve better! And we shall have it...Horrible security. Don't be fooled.

      Fine for a spell...
      Nothing stands out about Grand Central, and I guess that's a good thing for Baltimore, since the whole town thinks of itself as DC's ugly, urine-stained step-sister. The place is fine, neither awful nor fabulous. The drinks were ok, the service was ok, and the atmosphere was... ok. Nice door-man, but his kindness as we entered was the only memorable thing about the place.

      Decor is nice for Bmore. You reallly dont have much choice in the area. Bartenders are ok, nothing great. The crowd during the week is very small, and most know one another. Weekends can be busy with the dance area opening up with a cover charge. The beers are $4 on weekends. There is a smoking patio out back and a dance area with cover upstairs. Nothing great but better than the Hippo. It also has a younger crowd than Hippo.

      great atmosphere
      enjoyed my night out there was on a friday night and was very busy, friendly people and professional staff, i however did not care for waiting in line at the coat check so i could pay to go upstairs, especially when i didnt have a coat, one guy can not do this job, otherwise a fun place to drink and cruise boys and flirt with hottie bartenders

      friendly neighborhood bar
      When I arrived, the dance club was still closed so I just chilled at the bar. The staff were nice and the crowd was a bit older. (30-40ish) The bar area was average sized with tables and views of the street. The back area of the bar had a couple of pool tables. Later when the dance club opened I had to pay a cover to get in. It ended up being pretty fun after about 1:00 AM. I'm thinking everyone goes here at the end of the night.

      Grand Central Station
      This bar is a great place for those who like High Tech Loud music and twinks. The crowd is somewhat friendlier than other local bars mentioned. Prices could be better, I'm not sure about the leather part Never saw anyone ever there in leather. A must go for out of towners looking for dance and loud music. scalke of 1 to 10 I rate it an 8
