About Us

The Flying Camel ...

... is Hagerstown’s one and only literary café and piano bar, locally owned and operated by the Castillo family, featuring a warm and inspiring atmosphere, a playful and loving staff, healthy fare, bizarre and delicious cocktails, and food for thought. We host live music, open mic events, odd festivals, and thought-provoking talks. Our atmosphere is designed to inspire curiosity and encourage learning.

Our Mission Statement

To provide high-quality jazz, “edutainment,” and social experiences to our community in a unique, fun and inspiring literary café-piano bar environment.
