The 8X10 Club is Baltimore#25;s go-to venue for all things music, and the club hosts several sold-out shows throughout the year. The 8X10 started as the Dew Drop Inn and was eventually changed to Joe#25;s Organic Juice Bar, next becoming the Eight By Ten in 1983, where the venue hosted acts like Billy Joel, String Cheese Incident, Red Hot Chili Peppers, 311, Suzanne Vega, Sugar Ray and more. After undergoing a multi-million dollar renovation that improved sound in the venue and added a springboard dance floor, the 8X10 was taken under new ownership in 2005 and adopted its shorter moniker, 8X10.
Located in Baltimore#25;s Federal Hill, the 8X10 Club is Baltimore#25;s premiere spot for live music. The music club features a jolting dance floor that accommodates large crowds and is host to live music spanning all genres but especially including rock, pop, blues, jazz, reggae and soul. Typically, the venue is standing room only with 50 bar stools set up and dispersed across the club#25;s two levels. Shows at the 8X10 vary from all ages to 18 and over, and alcohol is offered for patrons over 21.
