  • How We Do Things

    Behind the Bagels with Bottoms Up

  • Who We Are

    Bottoms Up Bagels® is a small batch bagel shop, preparing handmade, authentic NJ style bagels (yes, we boil them), house cured lox and specialty cream cheeses. Inspired by traditions of bagel-making dating back to the 1940s, these Jersey girls and friends founded BUB in 2015. Bottoms Up Bagels brings classic flavors to long-time residents and transplants alike.

     

    BUB began as a pop-up based business in Baltimore City and grew from there thanks to devoted customers, collaborators and champions (aka "BUBalas"). We were named Baltimore's Best Bagel in 2018. In 2019 we launched the BUB Roadshow, testing our concept in areas off-the-beaten-path. Vaccinated and ready, we resumed this tradition in 2021.

     

    We believe in community and that the exchange of a lovingly prepared meal and passionate service are the most valuable of gifts. We serve food the way we like to eat it and the way we would prepare it for you in our home.

    Moving to the BUB Hub!

    BUB was founded with the vision of our childhood haunts - bagel shops in full production with steam on the windows and a fresh sack of everything bagels smelling of onion and garlic on the way home.

     

    But it wasn't only the food, it was the people. The construction worker, businessperson, teacher and basketball team all at the counter together - elbows out - digging into a freshly made, affordable and filling treat. It was also the people behind the counter making those things happen that we looked to with awe and appreciation.

     

    For four years BUB worked to re-create this in products and spirit on-the-go all over town. In June of 2020 we moved to The BUB Hub, where production met retail. Unfortunately, due to a multitude of factors following the COVID pandemic, our location on Greenmount Ave closed its doors sooner than anticipated.

     

    As we work on a new home, check back to see how BUB evolves.
