What a blast!

How fun to have so many different places to choose from. Lively crowds, but not overcrowded. When you are tired of one place just go to the next. All under one roof.

Let's just say that I have had some fun times here people watching, live bands in the center and the big screen where you can catch a game. But, it is a tourist trap, same old chain bars and restaurants, high priced, crowded, young club crowd in fact you can find the same exact thing in Louisville Kentucky. Seriously, called... More

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! Not as much left over to spend on food and drink. Cheers!"

We visited this area on Valentines weekend. There is a large covered area with many restaurants and bars. On Valentines evening there was a band playing in the courtyard area. It was quite cold, but there were several patio heaters for the patrons. We went inside two restaurant/bars, and were told that these establishments have a relationship with each other,... More

Not for underage family members--but this great party spot has tons of good restaurants/ bars and a super fun environment. We may have been on the older side at the bar during the play offs-- but we partied like the young ones and totally enjoyed ourselves. Our niece held her bachelorette party at "Howl at the Moon" and the house... More

This area is a free zone to walk around with your cocktails. Flying saucers bars has hundreds of foreign beers to explore. Food isn't bad either.

As I said, I was there on a Sunday in January. The hanging strings of lights were very impressive to the entire area. Each place I went in had a nice special, or usually many specials. Parking is only $2 with verification from an establishment. Definitely worth going to again.

It looked really cool, but it was so busy while we were there that you could hardly get around. Not my kind of party, but if you don't mind it being packed, it is a pretty cool place to check out. Granted, we were there while a concert was going on.

Had a great saturday night in the Power and Light District. It was a little douchy at times, but tons of bars to choose from and overall a great time. Get there before 10 to avoid cover charge.
