Overview of Decor
The décor of Blackwall Hitch conveys an upscale look with a handcrafted vibe that is urban chic and modern with a casual, nautical twist. The energy-filled environment has the feel of an old, industrial shipyard with elements of elegance that includes Quartz flooring in the foyer, cedar-wrapped walls, reclaimed and restored tables and chairs, antique elements, and replica Edison lighting. – Bobbi Nock & Tammy Ray, co-designers
Our Main Dining Room offers semi-private space for larger events. Strands of Edison lights criss-cross the ceiling to illuminate the middle of the room like a patio garden party, while beautiful blown glass chandeliers surround the perimeter of the dining area. The space includes the King’s Table as well as the Wine & Oyster Bar that both overlook the working kitchen. The Main Dining Room can hold 60-100 people and when combined with the Gathering Room we can accommodate up to 130 for a seated event.
The Gathering Room features three rectangular farmhouse dining tables matched with reclaimed and restored chairs. The clean lines of the painted brick provide a perfect backdrop to colorful nautical art displayed on the walls. Sliding glass doors separate you from the Main Dining Room and The Living Room with plenty of natural light beaming through the picture window. The Gathering Room is ideal for rehearsal dinners, small wedding receptions, corporate events and social celebrations. Seats up to 42 people alone and up to 50 people when combined with the Living Room. Or if you prefer a stand-up cocktail style party, invite up to 60 of your closest friends and family to the festivities.
Whether you love this space for its farmhouse dining table, the pair of cozy leather arm chairs, the flat screen TV, or the floor length curtains that make this room exceptionally private, The Living Room is the perfect setting for your most intimate events and seats 8 or fewer guests right on the main level of the restaurant.
As you walk into The Wine Room, you are immediately drawn to the fifty-two blue glass vintage bottles creating an impressive chandelier that sparkles above a round farmhouse table. With bright white brick walls that display a collection of selected wines and natural light streaming in through a picture window, this room is perfect for any intimate celebration. Seats up to 10 people.
Perfect for the more casual birthday celebrations, large family dinners, corporate luncheons, and get-togethers of friends, the King’s Table is undoubtedly the most special table in our entire dining room. Ideal for groups of 16 or fewer people, this semi-private event area features a super spacious farmhouse table right in the heart of the restaurant where your guests can really be a part of the exciting atmosphere of our downstairs level.
Located on the second floor of the restaurant, this room is set with a large conference-style table. Designed with contemporary nautical style and equipped with audio visual, this room is perfect for business or pleasure. The half glass wall overlooking the main entrance gives an open feel to the room and it can accommodate up to 16 people.
Overlooking beautiful Downtown Annapolis, the Naval Academy, and Spa Creek, the Crow’s Nest is our rooftop patio. During the warmer months, this space boosts comfortable lounge seating, as well as high top tables for large groups and intimate tables for two. During the colder months, you can celebrate your special occasion with 50-70 people in our custom-built heated tent, one of the most sought after event spaces at our restaurant.
and Oyster Bar
Overlooking the working kitchen, the Wine & Oyster Bar is the perfect spot to savor freshly shucked oysters on the half shell that have been paired perfectly with your favorite glass of champagne or wine. This space is also perfect for intimate “Chef’s Table” style gatherings for up to 12 people.
The Bar is the life of restaurant. Showcasing both local and regional musicians of all genres, live music fills the restaurant Wednesday through Saturday Night and during Sunday Brunch. Design elements in the bar include a cozy fireplace, large stage, and our Zeppelin Wall featuring the lyrics from “The Ocean” which is a favorite photo backdrop for guests.
