I went to Dutch Courage, the gin bar, to celebrate National Daiquiri Day, a rum-based “holiday,” because it’s one of very few good restaurants north of Harbor East that’s open on Mondays.

And, regardless of day of the week, it’s the best cocktail bar in town.

The daiquiri on the menu, Windward Daiquiri, is a wonderful blend of sweet and tart. It’s crisp and incredibly refreshing.

They also hooked up some other classic daiquiris for me, all of which were delicious.

The cocktails are great, whether on menu, off menu, or the daily specials, they're thoughtfully crafted and well executed. Our server Amanda was amazing and Brendan, one of the owners, stopped by to check on us a couple times. One of my favorite Baltimore bars. If you're hungry, you gotta try the cold cut bahn mi. An inspired sandwich.

Unique gin cocktails and small plates. They will mix your gin or other drinks as you like. Great service! We ate inside and it was quite loud so I’d like to try outside next time.

It was my first time at Dutch Courage and I was not disappointed. It is a charming, funky gin bar with an interesting menu of both food and drinks. We were there for their Smokin Sunday Supper with music. We sat outside under a tent in a courtyard type of area filled with plants and greenery which really warmed up the space. The band which was called the Flowering Faders (I think) were fantastic. Drinks were great. I am not that into gin but the drink that I chose was wonderful. The drinks come with beautiful stems and flower which make it festive. We had the smoked duck wings which were delicious. I had the
Hangar steak and Frites and my husband had the Beet Poke Bowl with Soy Egg. The steak was super tender (I think maybe Sous Vide) with delicious gravy and my husband had no complaints with his dish, commenting how good it was several times. My only complaint is that it is a bit pricey. However, probably not out of line with other cocktail bars. It is small and with the pandemic I am not sure if they have opened up the inside yet. Masks are still required until you are seated. I will definitely go back for their regular menu to try some things. The Chef knows what they are doing. Kudos to the servers. Attentive but not overly concerned. Try it out for something different.

My husband and I love Dutch Courage! We bring our out-of-town visitors here to impress them. The service is consistently excellent and makes you feel special. It’s the kind of place where you can order anything and be certain it will be delicious. The space is also beautiful and the music is always great. It’s fine dining, without the pretense.

I love gin and this place was heaven for a Gin lover! Also have lots of great drinks for those who love other alcoholic drinks. The waitperson was very knowledgeable and brought us a flight of gins that were delicious. We ended up buying 2 of the bottles. Happy hour is a great deal but it’s a limited selection. We should have stayed to try the food but that’s for next time!

Cocktails were good, the food was just OK. My wife’s food came out too early, and mine didn’t come out until much later. Our water pitcher never got refilled, and the server just asked us to agree that things were good. I would not have been as miffed if hadn’t been expensive.
