“Power Plant Live is a collection of bars, restaurants and other businesses in downtown Baltimore.”

Night Club

“This legendary, maritime dive bar features one of Baltimore's best live music scenes. Several classic rock and blues bands play daily, and while there are occasional $5 cover charges on weekends it's otherwise free during the week. This bar skews older and gets pleasantly sloppy by closing time, but the regulars foster a welcoming community that ensures no one feels out of place.”
