We came from out of town to celebrate a bachelorette party at P&L. Unfortunately, the experience as a whole was underwhelming. The people working the doors were rude. Just a heads up, bring a credit card with you after 11pm, because the entrance fee is $10/person and they don't accept cash in order to "keep the undesirable elements out". I completely forgot that KC has no smoking prohibition, so we were sickened by cigarette smoke. We were told that Mosaic was the place to go, but that line was at least 100 people long. After waiting, we headed to the Shark Bar. Another so-so establishment. Not to mention, people do not know the word "excuse me", we were constantly bumped into. The whole vibe was not very positive.
The redeeming aspect of the night was the amazing cover band. I can't remember their name, but they played the evening of July 20th. Seriously, I've never seen a cover band handle so many genres so effortlessly. We definitely should have been in front of their stage the whole night. Plus the people listening were way more awesome than the other rude folks milling about.
Overall, Power & Lights has potential to be awesome. But the current clientele and attitude is rude and off-putting. We did not feel welcome. I wouldn't go there again.
Oh, and demographically, for perspective, our group was a collection of African American, mid to late-20's, professional females.
