About the Venue:

Everything at Blue Pit BBQ is made from scratch, our meats are smoked slow and low, our sides are carefully crafted and our cocktails use fresh squeezed juices and homemade syrups. Blue Pit BBQ is named for pit bbq and our beloved blue pit bull. We believe in community and we believe in Baltimore. We are happy to host fundraisers and events for nonprofits and other groups, often partnering with organizations such as BARCS, SPCA, Moveable Feast, STNL, and many other dedicated groups working to help make Baltimore better. Our dog-friendly back patio always welcomes well-behaved pups with water bowls, a dog selfie board, treats, and special gifts for your four-legged friend.
