Maryland Club Charles Street Grill

Back to All Work

Established in 1857, the Maryland Club moved into its current clubhouse in Baltimore’s Mount Vernon neighborhood in 1892. The ornate interior of the marble-clad building had been lovingly preserved and restored after a devastating fire in 1995. While the club maintains a formal dining room and patio space, the member’s desired a restaurant option with a more casual atmosphere. An under-utilized lounge room located just off the main foyer was the perfect fit. While the ornate moldings, fireplaces, and original recessed window shutters were restored, SM+P designed a marble, wood and brass-adorned cocktail bar as the centerpiece. A 15’ high back bar, complete with a rolling library ladder, showcases the broad selection of wine and spirits. A new stairway connects the new kitchen below which includes additional seating and a chef’s table. Along with full design services, SM+P specified and coordinated all furniture and decorative elements as well as curated art selections from the club’s existing collections.
