Hey guys, my gf turns 21 this weekend and I was wondering if KC allows the hour of power or not. Also, what would be some good bars to take her to, to start off and what not. And, what are some of your favorite bars to go to in general? Thanks!

Some bars have powerhour, you'd have to look them up and see what times they are from. Usually it's like $10-15 for 2 or 3 hours.

I prefer the Westport area if it's nice outside
You can go to power and light
Plaza
Zona Rosa//Northland
Casino

Well I meant the hour of power as in going to a place after midnight the day before/day of her birthday.

But yeah, I was thinking of taking her to one of the places in westport, just wasn't sure which one. Power and Light might be nice too.

I'd pick a bar with a close proximity to a hospital

westport is a shithole. Don't let anyone tell you otherwise. I'd been avoiding it the past several years due to the murders and crime out that way.

Last weekend a friend, for some ungodly reasons, felt compelled to go to the dark horse for her birthday on Friday night.

I will never...ever be going back again. SHIT_HOLE

Weekends, yes, but wednesday nights at the piano bar there are clean and fun with zero "ethnic" people trying to molest you for money and crap.

I would never enter there outside of wednesdays though.

I will take note of that for a later date^

Sounds like I will just take her down to power and light for a couple hours! Thanks guys.

I like the quaff myself. As well as brass rail to shoot some pool. Are you wanting bar scene or club scene. And is price a factor cuz P&L is expensiveee or it can get expensive I should say.

:skep:

It's in what you after. If you are looking for a "club" with loud stupid music, overpriced drinks, and white people from wall to wall then Westport is not for you.

If you want a place with some character, drinks that aren't overpriced, and that let's you hear the people next to you Westport is worth checking out.

That's actually exactly what I'm after and why I go to a place like Birdies that has 2 dollar domestic draws or comparable drink specials every night of the week, good food, non-crowded, and not a ton of trashy as fuck people.

Oh, and no one has been shot there.

That's a pretty cool place. Uncle Luke took me there on a man date.

People get shot everywhere. It's downtown Kansas City. I'm sure people have been shot in or around the plaza. Does that mean the plaza is shitty?

No.

Sure... there have been some events down in Westport but I've never felt unsafe down there and I'm a scrawny white kid that is about the least confrontational person you'd meet yet acts outlandish and stupid when drinking.

What is "trashy"? They aren't country club members wearing sweaters around their necks but trashy?

I'm by no means making the claim that Westport is the best place in the world to drink but I think it's a fun place to go once in awhile.

Defend it all you want...if you want to continue to go there cool. I'll not step foot in another bar there if I can help it.

Westport is not downtown.

However, none of the violence occurs in the Westport entertainment district (except for right outside of America's Pub, but I hear that is closing).

I've been going there for years, and have had no problems other than the random bum asking for money. Then again, I'm not some shitfaced JoCo guy wandering the wrong direction out of westport.

I've even drunkenly walked home a few times from Westport when I lived near UMKC.

Greg doesn't go there because he's uncomfortable. I don't see any sense in trying to change his mind. Despite him being wrong about the level of crime in Westport itself, if he's not comfortable there, he won't have a good time.

In KCMO, you'll be getting "the 3 hours of power". I did Dark Horse Tavern on my 21st going in there after midnight.

Where you go depends on your tastes and what night of the week it is.

Any bar should let her in at midnight since it would legally be the correct date.

If you want to come to the bars Lawrence, you're welcome to crash here, buddy. I'll even pick you up if you two are too drunk to drive :mrgreen:

There are a bunch of fun places within walking distance here.

Hah, that is true, I'm used to Nebraska. Even though they just changed the closing times to 2am.
I'm not at all worried about going to westport mainly because it is walking distance from my apartment and I don't have to worry about a driver.

Thanks man! But sadly her birthday is on Monday, so we will be going out Sunday night. I have class the next day, so I'm going to TRY and not get completely wasted :lol: I might have to take you up on that sometime though!

The problem with Westport is that there will for sure be check points in the area (especially on Southwest Trafficway). Also there is a big problem with vehicle break-ins (especially Jeep owners). A lot of homeless people hang out down there because there are a couple churches that provide meals for them there. Then at night they spare change the drunk people. I've personally never had any problems there, but several friends have.

The Plaza is fine too. It is more upscale than Westport, but they also have homeless too. The Plaza has a police and private security presence as well.

One area that I like to go is the MARTINI CORNER ENTERTAINMENT DISTRICT.

I will have to check out the Martini corner place, that's really close to me as well. I think I will be hanging out at westport a lot since I am not too worried about a few homeless guys and whatnot. If it seems like its going to be a headache after I've given it a shot a few times, then I'll have to reconsider.

:cheers: you're welcome out here anytime man.

Thanks man, you'll have to let me know when you're over this way and bored. I have some new things that I think you would enjoy looking at. :lol:

How is that a problem? Don't drive drunk and you should be ok, I'd say.
