New managers at Bedrock

Two former managers of Power Plant Live properties have teamed up as new managing partners of Bedrock Baltimore (Baltimore and Eutaw streets).

Together, Sam Chaney and Mike Beyer plan to make some changes to the pool hall turned live music venue.

They want to add a VIP section, bring in more mainstream DJs and bands and focus more on lunch and happy hours -- not just the live music.

Chaney ran Mex and Beyer helped run Mosaic, and want to bring some of Power Plant's party vibe to Bedrock. 

"If you take Mex, Rock Bar and Mosaic and jammed them into one club, that's what we're going to be," Chaney said.

Has anyone thought to ask Mr. Slate how these changes will affect his business?

Another X- Power Plant patriot is in the mix helping out too... Zak (formerly a manager of Mex, Mosaic and resident DJ at Rock Bar is now at Bedrock as well... w/ the work ethic and knowledge this team has, Bedrock is going to be the hot spot that these guys deserve. Fate brought these guys together to give Baltimore what it has lacked for so long.

Darn! I just "discovered" this place a few months back. Went on a Saturday night, it wasn't crowded at all, easy to get a drink, the downstairs was really cool loungy vibe. Now I'm moving closer to downtown and planned on going more regularly, but watch it turn into the next over-crowded "place to be". Great for them to stay in business though I guess, because it was TOO empty when I went.
