We are so excited to open our BDS Shanty Town & we wanted to let everyone know the rules we will be following, in case this will affect your ability to enjoy the shanties.



*a mask will be REQUIRED when walking to and from your shanty, or to use the restroom. There will NO EXCEPTIONS and you will be asked to leave if you cannot wear a mask.

*NO SMOKING in the shanty/igloo or on the patio, you will need to go to the back of the building.

*Shanties hold 4 people and the igloo holds 6, your group must be from the same household or pod, as defined by MDHHS.

*The shanty/igloo is heated, but we still recommend dressing warm and bringing a blanket

*90min reservation blocks due to high demand, we will be collecting a $20 deposit at the time of booking that will be credited to your bill when you order. NO REFUNDS FOR NO SHOWS. Cancellations must be made within 24hours for refund of deposit. Minimum $20 tab required for your visit.

*reservations can only be made thru the Calendly link on our website or Facebook, please do NOT call or message the bar, or any BDS employees to reserve. Start by clicking on the Shanty or Igloo reservation link. Select a time slot to view available dates for each time-slot.

*after you check-in with the bartender, you will need to wait in your car until your designated time.

*all shanties will be cleaned with CDC-approved cleaners with windows and doors open for 15min between parties.

We know not everyone likes these rules, but as a small business struggling, we want to be open to serve the community and our loyal customers, so we hope you can understand. It is everyone’s choice whether they choose to dine out, so negative comments to this effect are not necessary. And lastly, please be patient with us as we work through getting the details set up and working out the bugs.Thanks everyone for your support!
