Loch Raven: Out with the Old; In with the New

 

It was just a few short months ago that the beloved Bel-Loc Diner, the grease pit which sat at the corner of Loch Raven and Joppa Roads, closed its doors for the last time.

 

Now, in its place, and keeping the Bel-Loc name, although its just not the same, will be a trendy, although currently controversial, Starbucks.

 

At the Diner, you could spruce up your coffee with sugar and cream, while at Starbucks you can choose from a seemingly limitless list of drinks like lattes, cappuccinos, mochas, and what not.

 

At one time, before Baltimore City went through its renaissance starting with the development of the Inner Harbor, the night life was in the suburbs.  Not far from the Bel-Loc Diner was a very popular spot called Club Venus.

 

As Baltimore City struggles with high crime, or at least the perception of high crime, especially murders, will the night clubs start to open in the suburbs again.

 

Could the relatively safe neighborhoods in the Loch Raven area, with their moderately priced homes, become the hot new place to live?

 

Time will tell.

Ron,

This is an interesting observation.  You may be catching a trend at its very beginning.

Ron,

Does a new hip area need to have a Starbucks?  The typical Diner has a menu with food to meet everyone's preference.
