The revitalization of this area of Kansas City in the past decade or so has been brilliant. It is a great place to explore anytime, but a fabulous place to be on First Fridays . . . art, shopping, and restaurants.

Loved the set up. Had a great time! I went on a beautiful night and love the amphitheater set up for such a small venue.

We saw OAR in September and I absolutely LOVED it! This was my first time at Crossroads and it was a great show. I love that this place is a much smaller venue than most. Wear comfy shoes because there is not a lot of seating and the ground is mulch. We did the VIP tickets and never had to... More

This was our first time at this venue and we will be looking to see who is playing there for another visit. There was good information on the website about seating(and standing), food and drink availability and parking. We got our tickets online, got there just after the gates opened, and found a spot on the fence center stage. The... More

The Crossroads district in just off downtown Kansas City, Missouri is loaded with galleries, exhibits and boutique restaurants. For those looking for high end dining, there are several very nice, popular venues on the south end, bordering the railyards. The area has become hughly popular with locals and weekends are packed.

Take some time and enjoy the Crossroads District on your next "first friday" or on the weekend. There are now lots of galleries, art shops and restaurants I bet you haven't tried yet and it's really put a shine on the south side of downtown KC.

The Crossroads has evolved over the years as the arts district. As more and more artists moved into the area it was naturally followed by a number of small galleries and eventually, a number of restaurants ranging from cheap eats to fine dining.

The crossroads is an excellent arts district in Kansas City. I have enjoyed going to First Fridays on several occasions, walking through the galleries and shopping. I especially love Birdie's lingerie shop! Friendly people and gorgeous lingerie. There are a slew of great restaurants here, though I haven't tried many yet. Grinder's has great pizza. The concert venue is really... More

Great place to see a concert, lots of good food to enjoy surrounding the venue, such as Grinders pizza by the slice for only $3/piece! Giant slices grab a great tap brew and bring it along. No problem bringing it in. We enjoyed VIP tickets which included a special bar, parking lot, bathroom, and viewing area. Viewing at this venue... More

Saw a really good show @Crossroads and liked the venue. We had bleacher seats and the port o let that came with the seats had no line so that to me was the value of getting bleacher seats, plus it was nice to be able to sit between bands. Easy to get drinks but they were pricey. Staff needs a... More
