While it can be fun darting from neighborhood to neighborhood, soaking up all Baltimore has to offer when it comes to shopping, restaurants, and entertainment, you're bound to get exhausted, maybe a little earlier than you want, and that's no fun for anyone.

It'd be great to get a little from all these worlds in one, convenient location, right?

Well, for Baltimore residents and visitors alike, the solution's in the form of Power Plant Live!, Baltimore's premier dining, entertainment and retail destination located at 34 Market Place.

A veritable playground for the senses, Power Plant Live gives you the best in Baltimore dining, live music, and shopping all in one convenient location.

Check out restaurant row featuring great dining options including Ruth's Chris Steakhouse, Tatu (Asian cusine), and Two Boots Cajun-Italian Style Pizza.

If the nightlife is more of your thing, Power Plant's got you covered with 10 bars and clubs conveniently situated in the plaza.  Enjoy a few drinks and check out a comedian at the Baltimore Comedy Factory, see an awesome concert at Angel's Rock Bar, or, if you're feeling real adventurous, ride the mechanical bull at P.B.R. Baltimore.

And, who doesn't love free stuff, right?  Well, from May to October, Power Plant Live holds a free live music series on the plaza stage featuring local artists and national acts such as Papa Roach, The Violent Femmes and Finger Eleven.

Maybe the visual arts are a little more up your alley.  If so, a trip to Maryland Art Place is a must.  Featuring numerous, changing exhibits of contemporary art, Maryland Art Place is a great destination for anyone interested in wall art, performance, music, dance, film, and/or video.  Best of all, admission is free.

For parking, valet is available on Fridays and Saturdays beginning at 8 p.m.  Self parking is available in two garages; the Harbor Park Garage is off Lombard St just after the I-83 intersection and the Frederick St Garage located at 3 S. Frederick St, behind Ruth's Chris Steakhouse.

Bringing in over 300 million visitors each year, Power Plant Live is a mecca for sensory overload and good times in Baltimore.  Check it out and see for yourself!
