Acme Bar & Grill

College Scene, Bar

Editorial Review

Acme Bar & Grill (motto: "Think Globally, Drink Locally") is a college bar plopped onto Annapolis's Main Street. The main draws here are DJs Wednesday through Saturday, and live music Sunday through Tuesday nights and at Friday happy hour. (Dewey favorite Doug Segree appears on Tuesday nights.) Students from nearby St. John's College, twenty-somethings just off work and music-lovin' locals pack the booths and the long bar, sitting under pictures of bands who've graced the stage. Beer is reasonably priced; the generous specials (two-for-one Dogfish Head brews on Tuesday) and lack of cover charge make it a great place to hang out.
