    • I love this Bar
      THis is a place for everyone/ I have nothing but good memories of thisPlace. Everything from Leather, to Drag Queens to Huslters Young and Old. The Place has Drink Specials. and they go out of their Way to offer a little of Everything. Rules are: you come in, Spend money for your drinks, Have Fun and Dont be rude and have fun,.... If you cant do that,...dont come in. This is a TRUE MIDWESTERN KANSAS CITY BAR, From Darts to Pool Table to DRINK SPECIALS I love Crissy, a KC ICON and Lee never stops to make sure everyone is taken Care of and Darren Never stays withe Same Decor. Thanks BuddiesKC

      A Special Kind of Dive!!!
      I wasn't sure what to expect. It appear to be a bit like a shack from the outside and doorman offered little comfort. I sat at the bar all by myself on purpose. The bartender quickly changed all of that. One is always hot and the other is always friendly, a can't miss combo! The drinks are great, the music, rather from the jukebox or the radio, had us moving, and the locals are friendly as hell. Some can be scary at first, but they catch on quick. I ended the first night playing strip pool with a very sexy man. Hi Steve! And they open at six a.m., so you can close the joint at four, go somewhere to eat, turn right around and start all over again! So yes, it has a dive feel to it, but if you jump in, you are sure to have a great time.

      A Little Sketchy
      This is a hole in the wall neighborhood bar. The place really needs a renovation. The people are friendly, but the whole places seems a little odd. Poke your head in an look around, then run over to Side Kicks, the bar right next door.
