Nightclubs Tips (5)

The Beaumont Club: Say it isn't so...Country grammar in the big city

Kick up your heels and doe-see-doe.
I've got a hankerin' for a cuppa' joe.

Actually, it's not really like that. They play mostly contemporary country and alternate the lineup with a bit of alternative stuff. They do get guest appearances during the summer months. This year the concert lineup has Type O, Andy Griggs, and David Lee Roth.

Large wooden dance floor to do a bit of line dancing, 2 step, salsa or country swing.

Don't worry if you don't know how to do any of it, I believe that they still have a dance instructor that gives out free dance lessons between 7-9pm. Call the club to confirm.

Dress Code Casual
Don't get gussied up like you're going to a ho-down or something.

Jeans, boots, and a nice shirt for the guys is usually the norm there.
Whatever looks good and shows off a little leg (the guys love that) for the ladies.

Micocina: Food/Bar/Dancing/Salsa

This is a great place. Its a mexican restaurant by day and by night it turns into a crowded bar with a dance club downstairs. Only thing sometimes its hard to get downstairs without knowing someone or the mangager but if you do get down there they play lots of salsa and dance music and its good times. You will see alot of the elite sport players of kansas city pop up here.

Dress Code no requirements but people tend to dress a little nicer.

The honorable mentions of Westport Nightlife: What to do in Westport at Night

Surprisingly enought there are quite a few bars/pubs and clubs in such a small amount of city blocks. So here I will write down the honorable mentions.

America's Pub : 510 Westport Rd.
A loud dance club with a younger crowd. The bar is always packed, and features live music on weekends. There is a cover charge, but the pub stays open until 3.

Harry's Bar & Tables: 501 Westport Rd.
An upscale cigar and martini bar that also serves excellent food. The bar is a great place to wind down, as it is relatively quiet compared to other Westport haunts, and is open until 3 am.

Blayney's : 415 Westport Rd.
A great blues bar featuring live music six nights a week. There is a cover charge and the bar is open until 3. If you're looking for some live music other than dance, this is the place to go.

Have A Nice Day Cafe : 4115 Mill St.
It is a dance club with a 70's atmosphere, featuring frozen drinks served in fishbowls. There are often happy hours where drinks are very cheap.

Mill Creek Brewery : 4050 Pennsylvania Ave.
A crowded brewpub located in the heart of Westport. The bar serves up excellent beers and excellent food, and offers pool and darts as well.

Hurricane : 4048 Broadway Blvd
Has an upstairs patio and an outdoor stage hosting the live bands seven nights a week. Downstairs in the club, booths lining the walls for quiet conversation, and a DJ, spinning everything from techno to 1980s classics.

Stanford and Sons Restaurant and Comedy Club : 504 Westport Road
A full service restaurant, comedy club, dance club, billiards bar and more. The restaurant, located on the first floor, features steaks, pasta, sandwiches, salads and Stanford's popular Flower Pot Bread. Local, regional and national comics take the stage upstairs nightly. Dinner and show packages are available. This place is popular. Reservations really recommended!!

Westport has so many things to offer. I've only touched the tip of the iceburg.

club X O: Hit me with some hard trance!

Fomerly named Atlantis or The Cave, X O is so far the largest and popular dance club in Kansas City/Westport area. X O is located right off of Westport Rd on Central.

You enter into the main area of the club, which houses the larger of the two dance floors. The smaller dance floor is in the area called Oxygen.

The club usually plays top 40, trance, hip-hop, house, and intensely energized music. Very very little vocal music. Oxygen usually plays progressive and alternative music. You can dance to guest DJs in Oxygen when they come into town.

Friday nights I think they play live on one of the radio stations and you can usually get your requests by either calling in or emailing it in directly to the DJ booth.

Don't be fashionably late, it gets packed quickly.

Thurs- no cover for ladies and $1 well for everyone.
Fri- $1 well and bottles til 11ish.
Sat- is whatever they say it is.

Dress Code Casual
But keep in mind, this is a very popular spot, lots of eye candy for the sexes. (a.k.a- meat market)
So if you don't care about the way you look come in whatever you feel comfortable in, otherwise look good/look sexy/look casual.

Have A NIce Day Cafe: Have A NIce Day Cafe

If you like dancing to 70's and 80's music, then this is the place for you. Put on your disco boots, frizz up that afro and boogie back to the '70s at the Have A Nice Day Cafe. The nation's largest chain bar has enough kitsch value to put the bell back in your bell bottoms.

A journey back in time from the 'Far Out' 70's and the 'Totally Awesome' 80's with a lighted, pulsating dance floor, flourescent spattered walls, gigantic mirrored disco balls All this combined with a spirited staff dressed in costumes ranging from platform shoes & leisure suits to parachute pants and leg warmers provides the backdrop for the most unique and lively dance club in the city. We are everything retro and are taking the nation by storm! The best disco dance music of the 70's and the totally radical music of the 80's have found their home at America's original and only authentic retro nightclub.

The club is crowded, the neon and bright and the drinks are strong. Kinda makes you wonder if the disco scene was this exciting the first time around ...

Dress Code Like any other niteclub, dress to impress. And if you really want to get with the spirit, bust out your favorite 70s gear from your local 2nd hand store. My personal favorite is my black polyester pantsuit with the neon butterflies and flowers!
