Top Rated Attractions in Kansas City

Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts

One of the more impressive buildings dedicated to the performing arts, the Kauffman Center is the highlight of the city's cultural scene. Located downtown, this multifaceted event center is dedicated to enhancing stage arts in the city by hosting nationally and internationally renowned artists, as well as providing a platform for local artists to share their expression with a bigger audience. Spread over approximately 285,000 square feet, the center is comprised of venues like the Muriel Kauffman Theatre and Helzberg Hall.

Green Lady Lounge

Chicago has the Green Mill and Kansas City has the Green Lady, a couple of things they have in common are great jazz and loads of ambiance. The only difference with the K.C. version is that guests can enjoy a couple of small bites while listening to some up-and-coming local artists. The cocktail menu is also filled with a lot of old-school drinks like the Manhattan, Rob Roy, Old-Fashioned and their very own Green Lady made with apple jack brandy. Check website for complete calendar of musicians and other information.

The Phoenix

The Phoenix is what Yoshi's is to Oakland and The Blue Note is to NYC, most notably it is the city's number one jazz restaurant. Guests come down six nights a week to listen to a varied mix of jazz musicians from around town as well as those touring the U.S. The jazz hall also functions as a restaurant, so you can watch the show while you eat. They have a great happy hour from 3-6pm and on Saturdays their 'Bloody Mary Brunch' allows you to make your own Bloody Mary as you wish! Check website for complete calendar and show times.

Blue Room

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.

Alamo Drafthouse Cinema

The Alamo Drafthouse Cinema is one theater in a chain of theaters that began in Austin, Texas. It no longer belongs to the original owners (it was sold along with the name in 2004), however some of the old-school policies remain, for instance, no child under the age of six is allowed to see a film and you will be thrown out if you continually text or talk during the movie. The six screens here at this Alamo show contemporary films from Hollywood that are a bit quirky, independent and non-blockbuster. Check website for details and show times.

Gem Theater

The Gem was constructed in 1912 using a Baroque-style motif in its architecture and was originally planned as a movie house in the historic 18th & Vine District. Today, it is a live music, dance and theater stage that hosts various acts, from musicals to live jazz, the Gem is always abuzz with activity. The theater is run under the benevolent auspices of the American Jazz Museum (located a few doors down on 18th) and is most notably known for its "Jammin' at the Gem" series which features some of the best musicians in the world.
