Racist dress code and over-priced drinks. Plus, crime (robbery/sexual assault) spikes around the area, so be very careful if you're here at night.

A lot of fabulous places to eat. I am not much of a partier, nor do I care for the nightlife scene, but this is a place popular for that... Some of my favorite restaurants at the P&L include Bristol Seafood and Yardhouse. I also love Cosentino's Grocery Store,

It's very much looks like a mall only it's all bars and nightclubs- about a dozen different venues all under one roof. It was busy on Friday and Saturday night but not overly crowded. It was one of the best bar hopping experience we've had. So many options all within a few steps of each other.

The Power and Light District is a great spot for anybody wanting a nice night out on the town. There is quite a bit of parking in the area, but make sure you bring some cash because none of the parking is free. Your night can be especially fun if you are going to an event at the Sprint Center. Get the Power and Light District early to grab a nice meal, then go across the street for your show.

There's a bar for everyone of every type here. It's like a shopping mall full of bars instead of stores!

Lots of places to shop, eat, drink. The Sprint Center is nearby which is a venue for major music acts. Cosentino's grocery store has some really great prepared foods, big salad bar, a good wine selection and bakery.

An area built up in just the past few years not far from the Convention Center it has several bars and restaurants that are opened up to the outside during the warm seasons. Some locals come but a lot of business comes from the hotels and conventions.

During my 1 night in Kansas, this is where the whole city appeared to be enjoying themselves. Numerous bars selling beer from plastic cups which I hate but it didn't ruin a great night out. Being British of course the American women always seemed to be interested in our accents which we all love. Thankyou all for a great night.

I lived two blocks from this place so I spent a lot of time here. it is an enclosed bar/club/restaurant facility that takes up several square blocks. In the center is a huge open air area (covered and has heaters for the winter which work) as well as a large stage where bands play or sports games are shown on the jumbo screen.

So far I haven't seen such a well organized nightlife in any other downtown area. I spent my 21st birthday here and it was possibly the greatest night of my life.

PROS: A great variety of bar, clubs, food and musical venues all in one central location. Power and Lights has a single entrance. Some nights, depending on the band playing in the main area, there is a cover and other nights there isn't. Once inside you won't have to drive anywhere or walk very far to hop from one bar to the next. This greatly reduces the need to drive while out on the town, which is good for everybody.

CONS: Parking is nearly impossible and/or expensive in this downtown area. We found that taking a cab to and from where we were staying was the best option for our group.

My Advice: Go to Angel's Rok Bar. Spend a lot of time there. The music, crowd and dance space is great. Plus, they love to send bartenders out into the crowd to pour liquor in your mouth to keep the party hopping. Tell the hot African-American bartender I said hello sailor! Also, if you're hungry there's a great pizza by the slice place right in the square.

This place is a fantastic collection of nightlife in Kansas City. It's in the middle of downtown Kansas City. I've been out here on multiple trips and we have always had a blast. From PBR Big Sky, Maker's Mark, or McFadden's Sports Saloon, you are sure to find a place that suits you.
