The Westport area has become Kansas City's Party Central - when the city celebrates, it happens here, even if the occasion is just Friday night. Once a stop for provisions on the old Santa Fe, Oregon, and California Trails, Westport is now home to numerous clubs and restaurants.
Stanford and Sons KC's premier spot for comedy and features some of the country's best standup comics. Kelly's has been one of the best known "watering holes" in town for years. The building itself is one of the oldest in Kansas City, once home to a store operated by a grandson of Daniel Boone. I have heard stories that the basement still contains chains and shackles used to hold runaway slaves who were captured prior to America's Civil War.
