looking for the young atmosphere, with dive type bars, and looking to grab a bit to eat and have drinks for the night? well you found the place the hipster/younger professionals go on weekend evenings.

Concerts, interesting pubs, great midwestern food. Friendly people.. I felt like I lived here and had many friends. Great music. A little bit of post- hip 90s culture but nrw things clean venues and old funk. You will like this!

I like Westport. I would like to live in Westport bu the drive to and from work would be crazy. Westport is an ideal location for an interesting walk, day or night.

Char Bar was amazing! The atmosphere was fun all around Westport. It was a great place to go on a Friday night.

My friend and I usually frequent Westport and specifically Buzzard Beach (a dive bar) on Thursday nights and some weekends. I personally dont care to visit Wesport during Friday and Saturday nights....too many sloppy drunks for me and ppl tend to get shot. However its a laid back alternative if you want to come as you are and bar hop.... More

I go to Westport primarily to shop at Pryde's which is a unique shop they describe as a "hardware store for cooks". There are good coffee shops and Trapp's Candle Company and Zum's soap company have retail shops nearby.

This is a really fun section of town. Not as elegant as the Country Club Plaza and not as organized as the Power & Light District in Downtown KCMO. A few chains have crept in but, what gives the area it's personality are the many independent locally owned shops, bars and restaurants. There is even an indie movie theater located... More

What was once the far reaches of American civilization and where pioneers set off from on the Santa Fe,Oregon,and California trails to settle the West is now Kansas City's bohemian neighborhood where hipsters and tourists hang out in bars,play pool or search out interesting restaurants. It's not a very large area but it's worth checking out for a night on... More
