200 E. Pratt St., 410/332-4191,
HOURS: Mon.–Sat. 10 a.m.–9 p.m., Sun. noon–6 p.m.
Across Pratt Street from the waterfront pavilions of Harborplace is the Gallery, an open, airy, indoor mall that caters to both tourists and downtown office workers with a mix of shops and even a food court (with some great views of the city). Shops here include Ann Taylor, Banana Republic, Brooks Brothers, Coach, Forever 21, Nine West, and Talbots—your typical mall basics.
There’s also a Bluemercury spa, and a few other personal grooming shops and stores. If you’re staying downtown, the convenience of this shopping center can’t be beat, even if it’s all national chains.
