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.

My wife and I came down to the Power and Light District during our night stay in KC. It was very neat to see with all the lights and entertainment in a small area. We didn't pay any cover fee (which I understand is sometimes the case). They check IDs to get in the greater area and then you can... More

This is where Kansas Citians go to watch major events and party together. We viewed the World Cup and World Series from a giant screen, it was a blast. There are plenty of free outdoor concerts on the weekends and people can overflow from the bars into the multilevel, block long, outdoor court. It's directly across from the Sprint Center... More

Almost like being there - watching the baseball games with 10,000 other people. Plenty of people watching along with the games.

Most complaints of this place are only valid to the point of what did you expect? It's a bar district and in fact a pretty well run one at that. Great lunch stop with a ton of options, but later in the night it gets a little crowded and wild.

First trip ever to Kanas City MO. My good friend and I went to see our favourite NFL teams (Chiefs & Patriots) play in the Monday Night Football game on Sept 29th. We flew in the Saturday to see Dallas Star vs St Louis Blues exhibition game. After the game we went to the Power & Lights District. It's a... More
