Kansas City, MO Escorts
Find high class Kansas City escorts on Cityvibe.com
Named after the Kansa Indians who settled along the Missouri River, Kansas City blends old and new, city and prairie. It's often been called the "City of Fountains" since it boasts more outdoor water features than any other city, save for Rome. Music flows freely, too, especially in the form of jazz. That legacy can still be heard at the famous 18th & Vine Historic District or at City Market. Architecture, most notably the sixty-plus examples of Art Deco styling, are also prominent. Other attractions include Science City at Union Station, the Kansas City Zoo, and the Arabia Steamboat Museum. For grownups, Kansas City's riverboat casinos are a huge draw, as are the city's hometown teams, the NFL Chiefs and MLB Royals.

Green Lady Lounge
809 Grand Blvd.
Kansas City, MO
There's nothing impressive about Green Lady Lounge from the outside. But all that changes inside, where an original tin ceiling glows above live jazz musicians who fill the long narrow room with terrific jazz. Customers snack on cheese or hummus platters while talking in subdued tones and ignoring their cell phones. The darkened lounge feels cozy and secluded without a single television in sight. Specialty cocktails priced from $8 to $10 include classics such as a whiskey Old Fashioned, a bourbon Manhattan or a Negroni made with gin, Campari and sweet vermouth. Green Lady Lounge has a big beer menu and a much smaller wine menu but the focus is clearly on handcrafted drinks and great music. It doesn't get much better than that.
Davey's Uptown Ramblers Club
3402 Main St

One of Kansas City's most popular nightspots, Davey's Uptown regularly features pretty big names on the music front, including the Afghan Whigs, No Means No, Roger Clyne & the Peacemakers, The Follow, and Bruce Robison. The old dive dates from the 1920s, when it opened as a Prohibition-era cocktail lounge. When it got "on the level" in 1934 and obtained a legal license to sell, Davey's had already established itself as one of the city's best watering holes. At its current location since 1950, the bar offers everything a good night owl needs: Old Style on tap, level pool tables, arcade games, bar stools, and a great sound system.

300 Armour Rd
Kansas City, MO 64116
Swank black and cherry-toned decor and a marble-topped bar might seem out of place in a bar owned by a former Major League Baseball player, but the varied crowd the establishment attracts doesn't seem to mind. Specializing in cocktails (bartenders are reportedly impossible to stump), Kelso's offers plenty of lounging space wherein college folks, young professionals, and sophisticated hipsters can mingle. Live music on weekends and a better-than-decent pizza menu keep everyone happy.
400 E 31st St
Kansas City, MO 64108
This swanky cocktail lounge, billing itself as KC's only supper club and martini bar, offers a refined setting. As a result, it's hugely popular with a young business crowd. The eccentric "Dog Menu" features international and American regional dishes, including Cajun shrimp, BBQ chicken pizza, rigatoni with Italian sausage, and a portobello burger. While the menu does in fact feature intriguing options, what really brings in crowds is Velvet Dog's impressive martini list, which features everything from traditional Manhattans and Cosmos to "rarer" Chocolate and Neapolitan varieties. A patio offers fresh air and a great place to pass warm Midwestern nights, especially if you've got bocce on your mind. On weekends, the place gets crowded quickly, so expect a wait.

Live music is frequent, and bands usually cater to the younger crowd. Adding to the experience, Mike's features terrific bar food, including grilled hamburgers, "real" hot wings, and brilliant fries.
