The Levee

About us

Since 1965, The Levee has earned its reputation as a Kansas City institution and is truly one of KC's most unique bars.

Located in historic midtown, The Levee is perfectly situated between the shops and restaurants of the Country Club Plaza and Old Westport. Only here you will find everyone from college kids and CEOs, young, old, and everyone in between, rubbing elbows as they dance the night away.

On the main level, you’ll find KC’s most popular bands performing everything from soul and blues to reggae and rock every Thursday through Sunday. The very best of Kansas City’s local music scene takes stage nightly, keeping the dance floor buzzing until the early morning hours.

Head upstairs and you’ll find a classic neighborhood bar. It a great place to meet friends grabs a bite or watches a game on one of our 10 HDTVs.

Several outdoor seating areas are open, weather permitting, and our private party facilities are popular with local businesses, schools, and individuals alike. The Levee has spaces suitable for birthday and holiday parties, rehearsal dinners, anniversaries, reunions, or any other special event.

So, whether you are looking for a place to watch the big game, catch some of the area’s best live music, or hold your next special event, The Levee is the place to be.
