If you are looking to see how Kansas City appeared back when Charlie Parker roamed the streets, stop by the Blue Room. Although the original Blue Room, where the 'Bird' blew saxophone is long gone, this jazz joint is a fine replica of the 1930's club. Located in the historic 18th & Vine district, it is a bit of a museum, with pictures of greats that cover the walls and relics of Kansas City's jazz era adorn the tables. Live music still gets the place swinging four nights a week. No food is available and smoking is not allowed, but there is a fully stocked bar.
Bands and artists like the Wilders, Zeke, Big Four, Bruce Robinson, Ann McCue and many more have entertained at the Davey's Uptown Ramblers Club.
