Power Plant Live's country-western bar, PBR Baltimore, gets opening date

Power Plant Live's country-western bar, PBR Baltimore, announced its grand opening today.

It will be March 4. Not surprisingly, it already has a twitter page; I'll let you find it on your own. The bar's publicists describe it, steel yourself, as the place where "cowboy cool meets urban chic."

Power Plant Live is making room for the bar as part of its $11 million expansion, which also includes the construction of an outdoor stage and the addition of some new venues,  like the Baltimore Comedy Factory, which is moving from downtown after Burke's closed.

The Factory's move hadn't been confirmed until recently. Chris Furst, director of marketing at Power Plant Live, said this week the outdoor stage should be completed by Preakness.

"I'll let you find it on your own"? Why not just link to it instead of being unhelpful?

The twitter page is @PBRbaltimore
They have a facebook page and the mechanical bull, Jack has a fan page.

Agree with Jen. It's here ( if you want it. By the way, that Twitter page also mentioned the March 4 grand opening date on Dec. 20, 2010 -- -- not TODAY as the reporter writes.

"cowboy cool meets urban chic"

I already have no desire to ever go there

pasadena comes to baltimore

Hopefully this bar will push out the jersey shore/MMA wanna-be douches out of Power Plant.

@phil HAHAHA and replace them with country western version of snooki? i shudder at the thought

Rather have friendly country-western wannabes than douchebags always trying to fight with others and their tiny affliction t-shirts

Awesome! They will have both kinds of music--country and western!

Urban chic, eh? I will be breaking out my rhinestones!

Sounds good! :)

I remember my first trip to Coyote Ugly...

Then again, it's Baltimore...

Coyote Uglier!

What's a true shame are the people who say "I hate country music" but listen to it at least once a week. They just say that to make sure they are approved of by their friends as what is known as "cool." Settle down. This bar will be a blast, I'm sure! And all of the insecure people that show up will give the "yeehaw" that all of the other d-bags shout when they hear country music, as if it's something they've never heard before. :) thank you for my vent session lol.
