This place has great live bands and the food is excellent. Parking is not the best but if you arrive early you can get a spot across the street. Conveniently located near the plaza.

The food, specifically the nachos, is amazing. Service was great and the place is spacious with lots of seating. Highly recommend for a place to eat, a place to party or both!!

Visited the Levee for a business outing. Truly enjoyed the atmosphere. The drinks were great, the dueling piano's so much fun. Would return again.

I'm a KC local and this bar is fantastic. You might want to call ahead and check the band genre but it's always a good time. Great little dive bar loved by the locals!

The Levee Bar & Grill is one of the longest running bars in Kansas City. Since 1965, The Levee has been known as one of the city's best places for live, local bands. The ground floor looks just as it did when the doors opened nearly 50 years ago, with live music every Wednesday through Saturday night. The second floor sports bar is filled with HD televisions which are tuned to local and national sporting events. We also feature several outdoor seating areas, and private event rooms. The Levee is the place locals bring their out-of-town guests for a taste of authentic Kansas City.
