Power & Light
The Power & Light District, also known as the "Entertainment District", is an nine-block entertainment hub chock-full of more than 50 bars, restaurants and shops. Originally named "Kansas City Live", the developer Cordish, Inc. of Baltimore, Maryland, decided to name the district after the historic art deco Power & Light Building. And in turn, a one-block area devoted to live music venues was named Kansas City Live!. The district’s covered outdoor courtyard hosts more than 130 free events each year.
