note by BPTHREE:
The "Marble Bar" was a venue that operated in the basement of a seedy hotel from about 1977 to 1985. In it's heyday, both the hotel and the bar had been Baltimore landmarks.
It got it's name from a 70 foot solid marble bar. In 1977 it was in a rough area of town. The venue could have been really nice if they had the funds to restore it some,
but that never happened. It was a lot of concrete, and smelled like a musty basement to boot. The last I heard, it had boarded up for years,
and they were going to convert the Hotel into condos. The bathrooms were to be avoided at all costs!
