I wrote a review a year ago but folks have questions. The entertainment district is named for a building in the area. It is primarily for the young party people, but has good restaurants and bars 20-30 so some of us older folks go there to eat or stop for drinks on our way to sporting events and concerts at...

Cool old building. Love the architecture and the light at the top that forecast the weather. Lots to learn about the down town KC area and the Power and Light building is a big part of that.

We went by the Power and Light Building to have some drinks and listen to the concert they had going on. It's pretty cool, but really not much more than a combination indoor/outdoor mall where they have concerts in the center court.

Great area but when there are events you will pay upwards of $30 just to park! You would think Kansas City would be a bit more hospitable and not gouge for parking! Cheers!"

Reviewers "theHighwaywarrior" and "Motion22" best summarize the actual building and the surrounding party area. I just wanted to chime in and say that the P&L building in Kansas City, Mo perfectly summarizes what the city looks like. As far as metropolitan cities go, this has its own unique feel like Time Square or Dallas. In the end, all cities has... More

I do not know why Trip advisor has this listed as a building. Yes, there is a building but it is not a tourist spot. The real action and attraction is the P and L District named for that old building. What's there? A 3 block area adjacent to the Sprint Center filled with bars, restaurants, and a few shops....

The Kansas City Power and Light Building is an Art Deco landmark of the Kansas City skyline. Completed in 1931, the west side of the building actually has no windows because a twin tower was originally supposed to be built next to it. When it was constructed, it was the tallest building west of the Mississippi River. It kept that... More

The P&L District is great for dining/drinking before/after an event at the Sprint Center or any of the surrounding concert/show venues. It's worth checking out the KC Live courtyard if you are in town for a convention. Their is a full service grocery store, Cosentino's, nearby.
