Kansas City Is known for many things and its nightlife is one of them. Clubs across KC light up the atmosphere like a lightning storm in summertime. However, that is not the only thing that keeps this bustling town moving; you will discover that you have a choice of comedy clubs, operas, symphonic concerts and casinos to keep you busy until to sun comes up. Here is what Blair Stover has to say about the city and the nightlife.


You will feel like you are back in the 1930’s will the live jazz playing in the 18th & Vine Historic District. In fact, you can visit the renovated Gem Theater while you are at it and then head on over to the Blue Room for local and even national talent. If you are hungry, you should try the New Theatre Restaurant, which is located in Overland Park. Some of this year’s lineups actual include “The Odd Couple” and “Lend Me a Tenor”.


You will notice as soon as you enter Kansas City, that the Jazz and Night Life part of the area is still alive. The stages are never really dark, even when they are empty. You can still feel the presence of past performances still playing. That is how powerful the energy is here in the city. Another area you want to visit is Crown Center, which will be filled with shows ranging from Broadway to comedies to musicals to dramas. Actually, Time Magazine ranked the Coterie Theater, which is in the Crown Center, one of the best children’s theaters available in the country.
