Celebrating the Vital World of Books in Baltimore

Committed to local life, we are a community space in Baltimore, anchored by a vibrant bookstore.

Who We Are

The Ivy Bookshop is a community gathering space anchored by a vibrant bookstore in Baltimore’s historic Mt. Washington neighborhood. We believe in books as tools of connection between people, and we invite you here to gather– whether by finding a hidden gem of a book with a bookseller in the shop, strolling through our abundant outdoor spaces with your book and a picnic, or joining us at an author event where books come alive as conversations about the things that make life meaningful.

Where WeGather

We are housed in a captivating 19th century building surrounded by three acres of gardens. These gardens are open to the public daily from 10am to 7pm, and we love seeing visitors make use of their versatility! They're great for dog-walking, picnicking, meetings, parties, weddings, and, of course, reading.

The Ivy Booksellers are here for you!
