How would you rate Melba's Place?
this place is cool, dfntly an older crowd, 25 and up very up, but overall mature ppl, decent food, decent prices, good music.
Good place the old.32 nd street
Layed back , club for grown folk
I like this little spot nice laid back r&b music in the front and a little rap and up to date r&b in the back, bar food was delicious we had the fish and shrimp basket very fresh and tasty, i will be in the baltimore area next month and i plan on visiting Melbas again!!
PS: and I so agree with Kenya its the perfect people watching place! and I am definetley a people watcher
I love tis place on Wednesday nites!!
This used to be my go to place to party and have a good time, I mean where else can you go in Baltimore for mature African American adults...but twice I have gotten violently ill from ONE drink (and I am a drinker) for me to ask if they are selling cheap alcohol or if a bartender slipped me a mickey. Either way...its not a place I recommend anymore, from those incidents.
I love this place
Mmmm..... I Love My Melba's FAMILY! I'm just keeping it 100%, Flat Out.
I love this place!!!!! The fried chicken is off than chain!!!! Delicious!! I dance for hours straight lol!
The people, the music, the food.and the drinks. I had a lot of good times in there.
Always have a good time, never any drama!
Great atmosphere, music & drinks. My favorite go to spot for relaxing with grown folk
Echofon Melba's on happy hours on several occasions have a wonderful time with great people great food and the drinks are delicious
If you a light weight like me, limit yourself to one or two drinks. They give you a serious bang for your buck. Had a great time.
It would be an excellent place if it weren't for the hood rats and thirsty men. And the fact that it's a very cramped place. So they rent tables to people to have their "party" which literally leaves you with no room to sit......Anywhere. The drinks are very strong which is nice since your getting more bang for your buck. But pace yourself cause God forbid you need to sit down for a second. You'll have every welfare recipient on your ass, over a seat. My Melba days are over. Sometimes you might have to pay a lil more to have nice night out cause Sometimes you get what you pay for
Cannot get any more Baltimore than Melbas. Good drinks, old school music playlist in front of bar. Local house music in back with younger crowd depending on night you go.
The worse security ever rejected my entrance as I tried to celebrate a friends birthday because of my shoes... Smgdh the way them ppl dress that come in there!! Lol
It's was really a nice atmosphere there, and they played great music too
Great music good crowd Melbas appreciation day today 30 years
Nice well dressed and mannered crowd. Great music.
Great drinks and food. And a grown atmosphere
We didn't stay due to manager being rude. We got there at 430 pm. They open at 5 from what she said. So she told us to leave and come back after 5pm. The Dallas Cowboys game and Green Bay Packers was just coming on we ask if we could just sit at the bar until they open. She was rude and we left. We are new to the area I will not refer this place.
It's kind of like a neighborhood establishment. The music what's good it's mainly a house party establishment. The people were friendly enough. But again my okay all depends on the DJ that's playing there and that was my first time ever going there.
Great drinks, great food, great music and great service !
Can't go wrong with anything on the menu. Service a little slow but friendly people.
Love the mature crowd, gresimm
Grown up crowd, great music, food and drinks
I had my 50th birtday party there me and my guest had a blast
The food is nice but not a good place if your looking for a man...they cheap
I dont hated this place at all.But its is beautiful place to go on the weekend.
Good music good food and drinks and good friends. Always have a good time
I always have a nice time at Melba's! Good DJ, Bartenders, and food!!!
For a local staple in the area....i was pleasantly surprised. Would for sure return
Comfortable and clean a place you can relax . Good drinks and great hospitality with a friendly smile .
I do recommend it for happy hour !
We went on a Saturday night. It wasn't crowded at all, until 12. There are places to sit and they serve food. The DJ was good mostly hip hop and club music. Pretty good time
Different,but dowm to earth.I am from Brooklyn NY .I really enjoyed myself.people were friendly, I will back old school TUESDAY'S.
Heard a ton of good stuff about this place maybe I go next week
Melba's is a Great Place to hang out with your Family and Friends. The Food is Great, I can actually smack the hell out of the Cook because everything was so delicious (especially the chicken wings and meatballs) Kitchen Staff are very prompt and clean. Security are on point in making sure you are having a good time and that everyone is feeling safe. The Bartender's are very Cordial and Professional, their 🍸's are on point. Last but not least, thanks to Ms. Inez (Manager) for promising me and guaranteeing me that I would have a Great Time. Definitely I will be returning to Melba's Place.
Best place in baltimore to enjoy friends and meet new new people
Had not been out in awhile went with my bff had a ball. Drinks and music awesome!!! I will be back.
I have a wonderful time everytime I come with friends and family the food and drinks is off the hook the music is awesome the bartenders are sweet hearts very friendly, Security does there job also friendly as well
Happy birth day to my kia we had a good.time thanks
Okay, I traveled from out of town to come to this spot and probably should have run when I noticed the place had a doorbell. The only redeeming quality of the place is the music. The drinks are watered down and the food is basic and low end. They have a no standing at the bar pilicy and subsequently asked my brother to leave because he stood at the bar too long. My entire party was escorted out of the door after spending over $300 on food and drinks. Once outside we were advised that this is a local spot that does not take kindly to out of towners. We were not refunded our cover charge either. I will definitely never return. We were treated very poorly. Shady part of town with women who look like they have been rode hard and put up wet. Don't waste your time or energy.
Had soooooo much fun. If you like to dance, this is the place to go. Drinks and food were good too.
Excellent happy hour!
Local hidden gem that is SAFE and the exact reason you venture away from the city/harbour area while visiting bmore. An Adult choice that is not to be missed.
Love this place grate customer service drinks one the one
Great place to shake and meet new people!!! Very grown and sexy!!!
12/8/18 Traveled From Pittsburgh PA To Baltimore MD To Celebrate My Fiance's Birthday At Melbas Place. It Was Well Worth The Trip. Music Was On Point, Good Drinks At A Great Price. Dj Kept The Party Rockin All Night. Dancing, Mature Crowd, No Drama, Good Time. Felt Like Family..!
WE LIVE IN PGH MY FIANCE TOOK ME TOO BALTIMORE TO CELEBRATE MY BDAY THE WEEKEND OF DECEMBER 7TH HE TOOK ME TO THIS CLUB AND I LOVED IT VERY MATURE CROWD, THEY LOVED TO DANCE ALL NIGHT JUST LIKE I DO LOL THE DJ WAS GREAT HE INTERACTED AND ENTERTAINED THE CROWD THE BAR TENDER WAS ON POINT THANK YOU BALTIMORE CITY FOR WELCOMING US IN YALLS CITY WITH OPEN ARMS WE ARE DEFINATELY COMING BACK SOON AND WE ARE GOING RIGHT BACK TO MELBAS!!! HAPPY HOLIDAYS FROM PITTSBUGH
Had a great time with friends on Valentines Day last year. The DJ was on 🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥 and the drinks were lit! Grown and sexy! No drama! The service was excellent.
OF COURSE CANT TOUCH WIN HAS TO DRESS TO IMPRESS.... BUT I STILL LOVE MELBAZ.... I LOVE WIN MONDAY'S WAS WEDNESDAYS TOO.... I LOVED THE HUMP DAY GIT IT IN B4 FRIDAY!!!! HOPE THEY BRING THAT DAY BAK!!!! LUV YALL N STAY N BUSINESS WE NEED YAH!!!!
The happy hour menu is good. They have good food on happy hour. The place gets hot and it could me crowded on Fridays.
Over the yrs this place has fallen off, the owner is only about money, men and women no longer dress; sneakers, sandals, t-shirts.All these yrs, he won't expand the club with all the money he makes. The drinks, bartenders are cool, but security are sometimes in the way on the dancefloor. Go back to the dress code and age limit; 35 and over.
I have been coming to Melba's for over 12+ years. I visited on 5/19/2019 to celebrate me Graduating from Morgan State University with my 2nd Degree. They have changed there dress code the beginning of the year. No sandals with no straps. So we decided to just go home for the night. But the women behind me was let in with sandals and no straps. When I asked to seek with the Manager. He said it was an exception for her because she was from out of town.
This was poor management. And I was profiled, because multi women went in after me with no Straps on their backs.
This is disappointing, and I will not be returning. I will take my business else where.
Wonderful atmosphere. Definitely for the Grown and Sexy.
Went on Friday night. Cash only establishment. DJ played good music. The drinks weren’t expensive. Four drinks for 34$ there was a nice older crowd there. I kind of wanted more oldies but there was a mix of everything.
Drinks are good
Food was good
Food was great, however, I was visiting from out of town and I ordered food my family and I, we actually left food on table in containers to step outside to smoke, when coming back in, the security lady with a nasty attitude charged us a cover charge, I said we are already inside eating, she says!! You came in at happy hour and now you have to pay, I have never in my life had an experience and will post this review everywhere. Plus her attitude is of a street thug with no business experience or customer service skills what so ever. Sorry Melbas, no good!!!!
Best cool place to go great service
My group came in from Pittsburgh on a bus trip and was very disappointed all while it's a beautiful place inside its in the middle of the hood and all while our hands were stamped we had to pay to come back in each time you left out as out of towners there was no hospitality we will never go to this establishment again drinks over priced i ordered a shrimp dinner greens was cold and cocktail sauce was frozen and wings was bland
I love my Melba's place but I have to complain about the kitchen. They just hire new kitchen caters KDW and had the nerve to tell me that they stopped taking orders because they back up. It was only 930pm and they backed up already. They told me it would take 15 to 20 min for them start taking orders again. Just so u know, there portions are smaller and the bake mac and cheese is not good as the last owners.
Always a great experience!
Have a drink and enjoy music
Kitchen closed til next week
Had a great time live in Harrisburg but have been there several times. Nice crowd, nice atmosphere, good food but drinks a little high. Would go again and again.
After an unexpected adjustment in my traveling plans this past week I landed it Baltimore MD, literally. I flew into DC and after spending a day there...read this and 23 more
