There’s a space for everyone to stay and play in the heart of Kansas City’s thriving Downtown neighborhood.


  • Dine in the District at mainstays like Guy Fieri’s Dive & Taco Joint (funky street tacos), County Road Ice House (KC barbecue), Bristol Seafood + Steak + Social (fresh fish and fine dining), BRGR Kitchen + Bar (elevated burgers and bites) and Meshuggah Bagels (authentic, deli-style bagels and schmears).
  • P&L is your destination for celebration. Summer concerts, fanbase gatherings and late-night adventures keep this high-powered neighborhood humming for everything from birthdays and bachelorette festivities to sports watch parties. Must-attend events throughout the calendar year include the Big 12 Fan Fest (March 11-15), Kansas City BBQ Festival (May 30-31), Hot Country Nights (summer), KC Beer Fest (September), Cornucopia (fall) and NYE Live! (Dec. 31).
  • Now open at 13th & Baltimore, Blade & Timber Axe Throwing is better than ever. And, when paired with other group-centric options like shows at Arvest Bank Theatre at The Midland, country tunes at PBR Big Sky and singalongs at Hotel Karaoke, there’s always something memorable just around the corner.
