Blue Pit BBQ is the perfect place for holiday parties, office parties, weddings, birthdays and more. Our number one concern is that you and your guests have a fantastic time. Our outside is set up with large communal tables and our upstairs has many large tables — perfect for big groups.
Complete restaurant buyouts can accommodate 240 people during nice weather and 180 without the outside patio. Our upstairs can comfortably seat 75 people.

“The atmosphere is relaxed and low key, which provides the perfect setting where Baltimore singles can meet up and get to know one another.”
“Blue Pit has a relaxed and effortlessly welcoming yet simultaneously cool atmosphere as well as food that fills your heart and your stomach.”
“When it comes to bourbon cocktails, though, don’t leave without trying the Sakai’s An Old-Fashioned Guy, a simple but profound blend of barrel-aged Elijah Craig, ango and syrup. It’s about as good as they come.”
“The menu offers choices of meats, platters, and sandwiches. Many of the meats are cooked with what are normally in your glass with Zeke’s coffee, bourbon, and more.”
“With communal picnic tables, high wooden fences, and stringed white lights, it has the feeling of a casual backyard barbecue — all with a great beer selection and killer cocktails, like the strawberry-rhubarb old fashioned.”

“As a bar, Blue Pit offered more than enough reasons to return — a spacious, dog-friendly interior, an idyllic patio, inventive drinks and a thoughtful staff. For the laid-back patron Blue Pit is seemingly aiming to attract, it could be hard to ask for more.”
“Blue Pit is a whiskey lover’s dream come true. Read: my dream come true. There are 45 whiskeys on hand to sample and savor and brag about, along with a cocktail list that boasts over a half-dozen whiskey-based offerings.”
“Although the barbecue side has yet to open at chef/owner David Newman’s new Hampden/Woodberry bar, the unique cocktails, impressive beer selection, and outdoor patio has locals visiting what’s become known as The Whiskey Open (for the “whiskey bar open” sign in the window).”
