South Point in Port Covington Acquires 7-Day Liquor License

| March 15, 2019 | 0 Comments

South Point in Port Covington has acquired a 7-day beer, wine, and liquor license (BD7). Located at 101 W. Cromwell St., this seasonal waterfront outdoor bar made its debut last summer at West Covington Park. It was previously only open Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays.

South Point is run by Weller Entertainment, a marketing, events, and production company launched by Weller Development Company. Weller Development is leading the development and construction of the 235-acre, $5.5-billion Port Covington development. The project is owned by Kevin Plank’s Sagamore Development Company and Goldman Sachs Urban Investment Group.

“South Point’s first summer at West Covington Park in Port Covington was a huge success, and we are excited to announce plans in the coming months for a more robust activation this summer,” said Marc Weller, president and founding partner of Weller Development Company, in a statement.  “We have acquired a BD7 license to allow South Point the flexibility to offer great music, food and drink on a more regular basis in 2019.”

The liquor license is being transferred from 2201 Gough St. in Upper Fells Point. Brewster’s Tavern was once open at that address. The liquor license transfer will need to be approved by the Board of Liquor License Commissioners for Baltimore City (BLLC).

In its first summer, South Point transformed the western section of West Covington Park into an outdoor bar utilizing shipping containers, a mobile bar, shade structures, string lighting, a gravel surface, table and adirondack chair seating, and sand volleyball courts. South Point’s offerings included its own South American-inspired BBQ as well as offerings from partnering food trucks.

Weller and Chip Watkins, who leads Weller Entertainment, mentioned improvements and new ideas coming to South Point this year at a press event last September, but have not elaborated or made any announcements at this time. There are currently landscaping crews and construction equipment making improvements at South Point and West Covington Park.

Weller Entertainment will also look to activate the former 97,000 sq. ft. Schuster Concrete building on E. McComas St. with events. The building got a facelift last year that included new windows and a paint job.
