My wife and I are in our late 30s. We are here for NYE. However, we are here a day early...any suggestions for what to do on a FRIDAY NIGHT? We like to dance, listen to music, and have fun...

Suggestions are appreciated.

I would highly recommend martini corner. Not exactly like it sounds, ecclectic group of about 6 bars, without the douchiness of P&L or the riffraff of westport.

The Drop (on Martini Corner) is a pretty alright bar. I've played trivia there the past two weeks.

Expensive but fun idea is to hit the Casinos. Power and Light is OK.

Martini Corner is a sweet place.

Casinos are fun too if you can afford to lay down a little cash and enjoy gambling.

I don't even care that anymore that Westport gets a bad rap. I don't even want to kick it with people that are scared to go there. :harumph:

I like to go to the secluded bars north of the river, I like how it's spread out, that granite city pub or whatever was nice, but that's just me, the Plaza is the spot still, no question.

To be fair here though, i've never been to P&L Dist.

Its not what it used to be. Kellys and Harpos are bought it anymore. Of course a couple of years ago me and my buddy were the only white guys to go to Americas Pub one drunken night.

Now that would be something to see! Dude hit up the happy hour at Dark Horse and the Riot Room/ The Union/ sometimes the Foundry. Great places. Still need to check out the new Gusto where Karma used to be.

Westport seems to be reinventing itself in the wake of P&L and can't quite figure out what it is yet. I was in the Dark Horse a week or so ago, ordered a Blvd and got a Power Hour speel from the bartender like a Primerica pitch. And damn it looked Midwest in there; cankles galore, fatties, dorks.

Best thing about Westport is the Riot Room beer selection, burgers at Beer Kitchen, and the food trucks.

I'll stick to afternoon drunks in Westport for the time being with all the other local pros.

Riot Room rules. The Foundry rules. Beer Kitchen is a very welcome addition. Westport Cafe & Bar is a nice spot with some damn good cocktails.

I'd go to Westport 9 times out of 10 vs P&L, and the one time I'm going to P&L is just because Flying Saucer tapped something exclusive.

All of this. Westport is fine by me. Martini Corner is tits as well.

Power and Light can fuck itself with a chainsaw. If you're scared to go to Westport then you're prolly just a scared person in general. You won't get mugged or shot. You won't get into a fight if you don't want to.

And the dill combos gyro from the Jerusalem Cafe food truck is the best drunk food ever invented.

The real troubled area is around hiboy in Indepence, Grandma lives over there, and I swear, everyone is either a European converted white-trash or on ventilators. It's a depressing area. THANK GOD there are good eats in that area w/ Tims Pizza/FunHouse/Gates and HiBoy. lol Oh and of course Taco Johns which happens to be the best restaurant in KC Metro area.

Sounds like you have a lot of choices for the night life but if your free during the day make it a point to tour the WW1 exhibit at the Liberty Memorial. My wife and I did and came away very impressed. We would like to do it again. And Union Station was enjoyable as well.

I'd go Westport 100/100 times to P&L. I preferred when you close down the Stables and skate back to the Market, but I understand why a city needs a place like P&L. Doesn't change the fact that Westport seems a bit frumpy too me still.

I've yet to get to Tim's, my wife swears by it. She's Blue Springs you know? Early 90's before the split.
