A Tour of Remington
Remington is a small creative community near the city’s center that’s evolving into a hub of art, music and food. Here’s how to spend a day in this neighborhood.
Just south of Hampden is Remington, a vibrant community predominately home to artists, musicians and makers with colorful art, cool new businesses and a mouthwatering restaurant scene. Remington has maintained a laid-back attitude while experiencing a boom in recent development. There’s always something new to discover.
Things To Do in Remington
As you’re walking the neighborhood streets, look for some of the most interesting murals in the city, including the colorful alligator painted by local artist John Ellsberry. Or take a detour into Wyman Park Dell, a park with trails and walking paths, and take a moment to reflect at Harriet Tubman Grove, named for the famed abolitionist. Signs detail the area’s history and Tubman’s biography.
Hip hot spot R. House is a perfect place for families and friends to grab a bite. A former auto body shop, the airy hall has large garage doors that open up to the outdoor patio. The 10 stalls are run by Baltimore chefs, each offering distinct cuisines from Japanese and Korean to Mexican and Italian. Nearby Clavel is known for its authentic tacos, ceviche, queso fundido and spicy margaritas. Across the street is W.C. Harlan, a speakeasy-style cocktail bar for an intimate nightcap. You can’t miss Papermoon Diner, if not for the bacon milkshake (no, really!), then for the eclectic decor—it’s covered floor to ceiling in trinkets, collectibles and colorful toys.
In between eating your way around Remington, check out cake decorating classes at Chef Duff Goldman’s Charm City Cakes, pick up a new plant baby at B.Willow, shop for fresh duds at Get Shredded Vintage and find your next book at Greedy Reads. Or, if creative movement is more your style, the Movement Lab offers some out-of-the-box fitness options such as anti-gravity fitness and cosmic yoga classes. Be sure to check out Ottobar for rock music by local and national favorites. And just two doors down is Beyond Video, a non-profit video rental with approximately 20,000 unique titles of DVDs, Blu-Rays and VHS tapes in its collection. You won’t be able to miss it thanks to the giant swirl mural painted on the front of the building.
