Just the place to spend a summer night for people watching, dining, drinks and music. This has become an icon for KC. Major sports events appear on huge screen for lots of fun hype.

Awesome bar hopping scene, and a great place to head out for the night. We were there during the Foster the People concert, and it was an amazing venue. Lots of fun.

Wish we could have seen a show at this little concert area in the Power & Light District. This place was surrounded by restaurants and had a great vibe.

You pay to get in to the actual area. After a certain time debit card only.Then you have to pay to get into each club. Music okay you get a different variety because of the different options of clubs. Younger crowd.

The Power & Light is not big enough for the crowd the Sprint Center can hold. Therefore, not being a fan of having someone I don't know in my personal space. We went back to the hotel and enjoyed the hotel bar.

Lovely area with plenty of entertainment for all. After dark, it is probably more suitable for adults. Great restaurants and bars --LOVED Maker's Mark Bourbon House & Lounge!
