Thread Name: Help: Blue Dog Cellar (Baltimore Coffee House)
Subject: RE: Help: Blue Dog Cellar (Baltimore Coffee House)
I sang at all of the 60's coffee houses. George Stevens started the Blue Dog on west 22nd street and it did very well. He got a bit too sure of himself and moved the place to North Charles Street just south of what is now Northern Parkway. The new style did not go over well with his prime customers - folk music enthusiasts and the place folded in just about a year. A number of coffee house establishments occupied the original Blue Dog Cellar on west 22nd street until the landlord expanded his restaurant into the space. I ran a coffee house and music store there for the last year and then moved north to the corner of 25th and Maryland.
