Visiting Kansas City for work can be just as fun as going there on a weekend off. The city has plenty of great conference hotels to choose from as well as lots of fun activities to get up to after the work is done for the day.
Head to the Blue Room in the historic Jazz District on 18th & Vine. This jazz club was named after the famous 1930’s Street Hotel club. At the Blue Room, you will experience homage to past big names in jazz. Furthermore, you can listen to great voices from the present as they feature live music several nights a week.
Another highly popular venue you could visit while in Kansas City is Harry’s Country Club. This bar stirs up great cocktails and was ranked by Esquire as one of the top 20 bars in America. If you are hungry, having a classic Kansas City BBQ is a must. Joe’s Kansas City BBQ is one of the most popular digs and usually has a bit of a wait before you can order. For even more BBQ, hit up Jack Stack BBQ.
A great way to explore Kansas City when you do not have all the time in the world is to join one of the interesting walking tours of the city. There are fun themed ones, such as Beer Tours and Gangster Tours, but you can also keep it classic and go for the Historic Kansas City’s Walking Tour. If you want to escape city life entirely, why not enter the world of animals at the Kansas City Zoo?
