Kansas City for Night Life

Mar 9, 2007  I live in Westport, so I should probably help those who are from out of town.
4.0 of 5 stars based on 3 votes

There are many great places to go to have a good night in Kansas City, Wesport is the epicenter to start from.

  • 1. Fred P Ott's Bar & Grill
    Fred P Ott's Bar & Grill, Kansas City, Missouri

    Have a burger, have a drink, and watch some live music. Ott's is the best hole-in-the-wall on the Plaza! It's just a short hop south of Westport.

  • 2. McCoy's Public House
    McCoy's Public House, Kansas City, Missouri

    Need vegetarian or natural foods, but don't want some little hippie joint? This is a real bar and grill with real, fatty food for people with discriminating tastes for salt and beer. Watch a ball game while you're at it in the very center of Westport.

  • 3. Majestic Steakhouse
    The Majestic Restaurant, Kansas City, Missouri

    See some of Kansas City's great jazz heritage and have a steak bursting with flavor. North of Westport in Downtown Kansas City. For jazz lovers.

  • 4. Dave's Stagecoach
    http://www.westportkc.com/places/daves.html

    Dive Bar with a single pool table and voted the Best Jukebox in Kansas City! On the fringes of Westport and not for the faint of heart! Can be filled with characters -- good and bad.

  • 5. Kelly's Westport Inn
    http://www.kellyswestportinn.com

    One of the oldest buildings in Kansas City holds one of it's best bars. Pizza from Joe's is available in the back as the businesses are attached. So have an Irish drink and a slice of pepperoni! This is the must-go-to bar in Westport. Next door to McCoy's.

  • 6. Broadway Cafe of Westport
    http://www.broadwaycafeandroastery.com/

    Next to a Starbucks that is having a hard time with such an awesome coffee shop next door. If you don't want alcohol, this place has the best beans and the best baristas in the city...no contest! Plus art students galore! Good place for teenagers to feel cool.

  • 7. Westport Flea Market
    Westport Flea Market, Kansas City, Missouri

    They almost tore this out to put in a Hooters, but the Flea Market survived!!! Go on Saturday afternoon to eat a burger and look through the very ecclectic shops. On the west end of Westport.

  • 8. Holiday Inn Express Kansas City - Westport Plaza
    816 Hotel, Kansas City, Missouri

    Just in case you need a place to stay near where you party. Between the Flea Market and Kelly's. You can walk to any bar or restaurant in Westport and back in any weather and be fine. But you might find cheaper if you want to stay further out.

  • 9. Sunfresh Grocery Store

    Just so you know there is a grocery store in walking distance. This can be helpful if you're from out of town and staying in Westport. It's been rehauled and has pretty much anything you could need. It's only a couple blocks Northwest of Kelly's.
