On a dead end block near the Inner Harbor, a collection of bars and restaurants draws young partiers most nights, and especially on weekends. Some are high end, including Ruth's Chris Steak House (www.ruthschris-baltimore.com) and Havana Club (www.havanaclub-baltimore.com). Entertainment is the centerpiece of others, such as Howl at the Moon (www.howlatthemoon.com), the new kid on the block; the Baltimore Comedy Factory (www.baltimorecomedy.com); and Rams Head Live (www.ramsheadlive.com), a larger venue for national acts and the home of the Maryland Death Fest in May. For those who want to chow down affordably, I recommend Joe Squared (www.joesquared.com) for its amazing pizza. Leinenkugel's beer garden set in a glass pavilion (www.leiniebeergarden.com), and cowboy hangout PBR (www.pbrbaltimore.com) are also fun. The area is a little like grown-up Disney World, but it can get really crowded as the night goes on. Late night crime has been reported on several   occasions, so guard your belongings carefully.
