Tomorrow is opening day for Sandlot Baltimore, the bar, restaurant and “beach hangout” that Foodshed LLC and Beatty Development Group have been building at Harbor Point.
Foodshed’s Spike and Amy Gjerde and Corey Polyoka, the team behind Woodberry Kitchen and other restaurants, have scheduled an official opening for 4 p.m. It’s the first downtown and waterfront development for Foodshed.
Sandlot is a mostly outdoor dining and entertainment venue that includes volleyball and bocce courts, a play area for children, picnic tables, an Airstream trailer and lots of sand. The menu includes sandwiches, nachos and other light fare.
The bar and kitchen have been created inside customized shipping containers, and the builders have added outdoor furniture that can accommodate groups. It may have its roots in rustic campgrounds and childhood sandlots, but Sandlot also has the sophisticated vibe of the latest generation of rooftop bars in Manhattan that are open to the sky and city views.
Sandlot Baltimore is located at 1000 Wills Street, between Harbor East and Fells Point. Hours will be Monday to Friday, 4 p.m. to 11 p.m., and Saturday and Sunday, 11 a.m. to 11 p.m.
An earlier version of this article incorrectly stated that the kickoff will be a soft opening.
