PBR Baltimore and Baltimore Comedy Factory opening at Power Plant Live!
Baltimore — Power Plant Live! and The Cordish Cos. announced that entertainment concepts PBR Baltimore and The Baltimore Comedy Factory will host grand openings the first two weekends in March.
These latest downtown destinations join the recently opened Tatu Asian Grill in what will be a series of high-profile additions to Power Plant Live!, part of a multi-million dollar renovation and expansion of the project (going on its 12th year of operations).
The openings and enhancements will culminate in a grand re-launch of the entire restaurant, entertainment and office district, according to Cordish.
This will be the third location for PBR (Professional Bull Riders Inc.) with its initial venture opening in the Power & Light District in Kansas City, Mo., in 2009 and the second related concept opening on The Strip in Las Vegas. A fourth location is now under construction in downtown Houston.
The Baltimore location spans 10,000 sq. ft. on the second level of Power Plant Live! and features a design by Knauer Design of Chicago, an outdoor deck overlooking the district’s main outdoor stage, two large-scale bars, fireplaces, a raised lounge with soft seating and a large dance floor. The grand opening of PBR Baltimore will take place on March 4.
The Baltimore Comedy Factory is relocating from its original location on Light Street to Power Plant Live!, with its opening scheduled for March 11. The move to Power Plant Live! will significantly expand the comedy club’s seating capacity and add a lobby and bar area.
