Take a nap first, the music starts at 1AM on Friday and Saturday nights. It's worth it, even to us older folks. You feel like you're listening to the next Charlie Parker, yet to be discovered. The musicians put their heart and sole into it and you feel like they're playing for great jazz themselves as much as for us.... More

I've been to a lot of places and heard a lot of music, but for atmosphere, quality of music and people, the Foundation is absolutely the best ever. Go Friday and Saturday nights after midnight for the jams. Just freaking gorgeous.

One of the two choices to go in Kansas City when the bars close up at 3am (the other being the boats). You pay a "donation" for everything: entry, food, beer. Don't ask, don't tell applies here. Damn near BEST jazz music in town. Stay until sun comes up. Crowd mostly white and upper middle class. About a block south... More
