Facilities and Capacity

Blackwall Hitch has multiple private rooms to choose from, each showing off urban-chic décor with a nautical twist.

The main dining room features eclectic Edison lighting, blown glass chandeliers, and table and booth seating for up to 76 guests. Attached is the Wine & Oyster Bar, an ideal place for guests to enjoy cocktails, or even for your caterers to set up their buffet stations.

Separate from the main dining room are the Gathering Room and Living Room, which can be combined to accommodate up to 50 guests. They feature reclaimed wooden farmhouse tables, floral centerpieces, and large windows to bring in natural light. The Gathering Room has painted brick displaying colorful nautical art for a memorable backdrop. For more intimate affairs, the Living Room can be closed off and seat eight people on leather arm chairs and for a cozy atmosphere.

Up to 30 people can enjoy the sea-themed aesthetic in the Sailorman’s Lounge, a well-defined dining room with soft couches and armchairs.

For couples that want a more urban, close-knit setting, the Wine Room features unique wall art, and a chandelier made of 52 blue vintage bottles. A maximum of 10 chairs sit around the reclaimed farmhouse table, with access to a rustic hutch to display hors d’oeuvres and desserts.

On the second floor of Blackwall Hitch is the Captain’s Quarters, a contemporary space with a half-glass wall overlooking the main entrance. It is ideal for seated events of up to 16, or for standing cocktail hours of up to 20.

Finally, engaged couples looking for an outdoor ceremony or reception can enjoy the Crow’s Nest, the property’s rooftop deck overlooking downtown Annapolis. Up to 80 guests can enjoy the comfortable wicker lounge seating during the spring and summer, or a heated rooftop tent during the colder months.

    The venue for our welcome reception completely changed the terms of our agreement on us 2 weeks before our wedding. We called Blackwall Hitch and Darcy put together an incredible reception for 60 people on less than 2 weeks notice. We reserved the "living room" and the adjoining room and it was a great space for the number of people we had. There was no rental fee but there was a minimum, which we hit easily and which provided an unbelievable amount of great food and drink for our guests. They also accommodated our young nieces and nephews who were able to set up a board game on a table and have their own space to enjoy. The waitstaff were very attentive to them and everyone else. We received so many compliments on this evening -- what great luck that the other spot didn't work out! I would highly recommend holding an event here!

    Blackwall Hitch was incredible to work with! We held our small, 20 person wedding reception in the Gathering Room and everything was perfect. The wait staff the day of were INCREDIBLE! I can't say enough about the wait staff. We also had table side wine service which elevated the event. We had 3 food allergies, including myself as the bride and they were extremely conscious and knowledgeable. If you're having a small wedding I highly recommend this space.

    We were a rambunctious crew of 30 with dietary needs but The Blackwall Hitch came thru for us and they were terrific.
    We had a lot of fun and loved the food & wine!
    Thank you!
