Things to Do
One of the great charms of Kansas City for LGBT visitors is that this friendly, welcoming metropolis has a wealth of neighborhoods of strong interest to the gay community.
Between dancing at nightclubs in the heart of the city and bar-hopping in trendy neighborhoods, the nightlife scene in Kansas City stands out as one of the best in the Midwest.
The craft distilling scene is booming once again—this time fully legal, thankfully—with a few familiar faces that have returned to their pre-Prohibition glory, plus plenty of newcomers, too. Raise a toast to the new golden age of Kansas City spirits.
