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.

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
