The property located at 4118-4200 4th Street is most famously known as “Club 4100,” a Baltimore area institution for several decades prior to ownership changes beginning in 2007. According to a previous listing for the property, the bar and restaurant was “frequented by sports legends and TV personalities such as Johnny Unitas, Tom Matte, Mike Curtis, Gino Marchetti, Brooks Robinson, Cal Ripken, Boog Powell, Art Donovan, Gary Williams, Tony Siragusa, Oprah Winfrey, Jerry Turner and Al Sanders. It (was) home to the Lion’s Club, Terrapin Club and the Marine Club for numerous years.” More recently, the commercially used portions of the building have been vacant, and are well positioned for the establishment of a new restaurant and catering facility or redevelopment to an alternative use.
The location at the corner of 4th Street and Edison Street in the Brooklyn Park area of Anne Arundel County provides proximate access to major commuter routes, including Ritchie Highway (MD-2, 2 blocks west), Patapsco Avenue (0.5 mile north) and I-895 (less than 1 mile north). The Fairfield Marine Terminal, several large industrial businesses surrounding the Port and the BWI Thurgood Marshall Commercial Corridor provide a substantial amount of people working in the area, in addition to those living nearby. Port Covington and the Baltimore Central Business District are also within a few miles.
