Kansas City’s Power & Light District encompasses nine blocks, and it’s where locals eat, play, and dine. It has welcomed more than 95 million visitors over the last decade, and it’s known as one of the largest and most exciting development projects in the Midwest.
Here are 4 must-visit highlights of this vibrant neighborhood:
Family owned and operated, Cosentino’s opened as a small neighborhood store in 1948. The owners treated everyone like royalty, and soon the market was one of the city’s most popular grocers. Shoppers find quality products including fresh produce, imported cheeses, and Atlantic whole salmon.
Cosentino’s is also committed to helping the community, and in 2016, donated more than one million dollars to local food banks.
Arvest Bank Theatre at The Midland
Since reopening in 2008, the Arvest Bank Theatre has hosted more than 600 events. It originally opened in 1927 and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The theatre is renowned for its 500,000 feet of gold leaf and five giant chandeliers and is known as a must-play venue for touring artists.
The Dubliner brings a little slice of Ireland to Kansas City. It features true Irish ambiance, complete with dark wood, chandeliers, and old photographs. The pub offers friendly service, and friends often meet there on the weekends to listen to live music. The menu includes shepherd’s pie and corned beef brisket & cabbage, and both pair well with cocktails such as The Guinness Swirl.
Angels Rock Bar
Angels Rock Bar boasts that it is part lounge, part club, and all rock & roll! The bar stretches 130 feet, and the decor is classic with a touch of decadence. Angels was designed by famed architects, and guests can see performances both on the stage and behind the bar.
