Parking was way easier than I thought it would be. Walking all around the district I felt completely safe. Very fun for young people to go out to bars, or if your looking for a cool restaurant. We sat in the middle of the district and watched the baseball game on the big screen and had a great time!

The Power and Light District of Kansas City is like a one-stop shop for adults looking to eat and be entertained. Most of the restaurants, with a couple of exceptions, are open for lunch and all are open for dinner. During the day it's a nice place for friends and lunch. Night life is lively and includes live entertainment as... More

With lots of bars and restaurants to choose from, P&L is always a great pick for entertainment! Cover and drinks can be pricey, but that's to be expected here.

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
