Not one, not two, not even three... seven new bars (and one tasty food truck) are pouring into Westport beginning next month.

The ambitious undertaking is the work of a coalition of local biz owners named Westport Bars KC Group + their partner Lance Pierce. Here’s what they have on the menu for you:

Westport Bar & Rec

4120 Pennsylvania Ave. | Opened Aug. 2023
The first of these connected concepts debuted last fall. This bar features 50+ games — including classic arcade games and old school gaming consoles — plus 100+ beers on tap.

Westport Landing

4115 Mill St. | Opening Friday, July 19
Looking for a more boujie bar? Then land here. Westport Landing promises to provide a “charming, upscale interior” where you can clink your cocktails + dance the night away with the help of a live DJ.

The Patio

4125 Mill St. | Opening Friday, July 19
Aptly named, stop by The Patio if you’re seeking outdoor vibes. Enjoy a DJ + live music as you rub elbows with ~500 guests around a fire pit.

Not just any patio, it’s The Patio — opening in time to catch those warm summer nights.

4117 Mill St. | Opening Aug. 2024
This intimate spot is designed to make you feel like you were transported to a tropical vacation, with its tiki spirits and handcrafted specialty cocktails.

Q Bar

504 Westport Rd. | Opening Oct. 2024
Dedicated to the LGBTQ+ community, this venture is an extension of Queer Bar Takeover KC. The pop-up will continue on with Q Bar serving as its permanent spot to keep the party going.

Uncle Jim’s Pool Hall

4127 Mill St. | Opening late 2024/early 2025
Ahoy, land lovers. A pirate-themed paradise, this upscale bar will have eight pool tables, eight dart boards, dozens of TVs, and a full service food + cocktail menu. Better get your sea shanties ready.

The Horseshoe

4124 Pennsylvania Ave. | Opening late 2024/early 2025
Giddy up and get down in this giant corral which will have space for ~900 cowpeeps. Mosey through the massive dance floor, tip your hat for bottle service, and rest your boots in the VIP section.

The map outlines where each bar in Westport KC will be for bars coming between summer 2024-summer 2025

Bar crawling is about to get a lot easier.

Full-service food truck

The Horseshoe parking lot | Opening late 2024/early 2025
Permanently parked on the perimeter of all these places, the food truck will be easily accessible from The Patio, Bar & Rec, and The Horseshoe. Get food while walking by or order from your phone + be met with delivery at your table.

Whew, that was a mouthful. All that being said, these businesses plan to employ a total of 250+ people and are currently on the hunt for staff. Interested? Submit your application on the Westport Bars website.
