The Sandlot

More than just being a shopping destination, Harbor East is a beautiful waterfront neighborhood that you’ll just love to stroll around in. The waterfront promenade offers spectacular views of the Patapsco River and the nearby Inner Harbor. And don’t worry — the entire place is walkable! Meaning that you won’t have to worry about long distances, aching feet, or pesky cars and obstacles getting in the way of your relaxing stroll.

Just steps away from Harbor East is The Sandlot, a seasonal beach bar that features food and drinks, beach volleyball, and live entertainment, situated in the still-in-development neighboring area of Harbor Point. This year, Beatty Development Company, the developer in charge of The Sandlot, has confirmed that the popular hangout and activity spot will transition to a “more intimate” event space managed by Canopy by Hilton Baltimore Harbor Point. This means that The Sandlot will primarily be used for private events, but will continue to hold large, public events during special holidays throughout the summer, such as Independence Day and Labor Day.

If you’re looking for a unique venue for a private gathering, The Sandlot is definitely worth considering! Or just stop by one of their public holiday events for an experience you won’t want to miss before it’s gone.
