Manor Hill Tavern  

3737 Old Columbia Pike

Manor Hill Tavern occupies the historic Taylor’s Row in Old Ellicott City.  Built in the mid-19th Century, this iconic series of buildings initially served the livery trade of the area.  The bar and dining areas feature original architectural elements such as exposed stone walls, barn doors, and beams.  Local artwork hangs throughout the Tavern’s many rooms and a newly commissioned mural adorns a main wall, a nod to the eclectic and vibrant artistic community of Old Ellicott City.  Manor Hill Tavern is a unique and memorable atmosphere unlike any other.

The Wine Bin is a locally owned wine and beer shop housed in what is known as the Third Ellicott City Firehouse.   The building was built in 1938 using federal public works funds,  and the architecture incorporates Flemish bond brickwork and a roof lantern based on a lantern at the nearby Doughoregan Manor.

The Wine Bin is not only a place to buy beer and wine but it’s also a place to learn about beer and wine.  The shop hosts regular tastings and educational events, and in the summer the store hosts an outdoor movie night in its parking lot.
