Great bookstore at the power plant area in Baltimore. It's definitely worth a stop if you like books. The magazine selection and art book section is much larger than most of the other Barnes and Nobles that I have visited. Great seafood next door and the aquarium is only 100 yards away.

Cons: I'm from Jamaica where we party for a long time - sometimes until sunrise the next morning. They told us the Bars close at 2 a.m (so early for me). No...they closed at 1:30 a.m. then gave us time... More

So in a nut shell, you got the eats, the drinks,the dance, the laughs and occasional concert. Parking within a block and plenty of police in the area so yes it's safe.

we actually wanted to go to our favourite American book store which is housed in the power plant. The most important part of the old plant has been preserved and it honours the space by being welcoming and pleasant space. The books, the cafe are a plus.

It was a nice venue with a lot to do and different style of nightlife in one location. Mosaic was a good time and liked the DJ. Definitely will be back soon.
