Swing by the Drummers Lot for a craft cocktail with a historical twist. The pub is well-known for the location of the drummer William Butterfield, who conveyed the daily news of the town through a variety of complex drum beats. During the 1750’s he spread public information to the people of Annapolis, standing on what locals called the “Drummer’s Lot.” In 1776, this historic lot became the home of the Maryland Inn, a popular place for lodging throughout the 18th, 19th, and 20th centuries.

During the winter months, Historic Inns is having a Getaway for the Holidays hotel rate special with the 3rd night free, a group meeting special with a complimentary butler passed hors d’oeuvres or champagne toast, discounts on food and beverage, and more.
