Kansas City is soaked with bars, breweries, and barbecue joints, but low-key lounges make up just a sprinkle of its nightlife. That’s why locals have been excited for the opening of In The Lowest Ferns, a swanky new spot nestled in the West Bottoms.
The night club is the latest creation of local production company Nomada. You may or may not know of them, but you’ve definitely seen their work. That military tent full of music in the Crossroads? Nomada. That music video for A$AP Rocky that was filmed in KC? It, too, was Nomada’s doing.
In The Lowest Ferns is found at 1105 Hickory St., KCMO in what looks like an abandoned garage — step inside and you’ll find anything but.
Instead, you’ll move through a dark vibey night club that is accented with red lights, thick clouds of scented incense, and surrounded by, you guessed it, ferns. And it is a lounge, so of course there’s plenty of spots to sit, sip and brood.
At the club’s center is a massive dance floor, where both local and traveling DJs are scheduled to turn vinyls on a rotating basis.
