What an enjoyable place to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary. Lonnie McFadden is a gift to Kansas City. His show is a trip into the past in an old speakeasy with great jazz, comedy, history, outstanding tap dancing and excellent food and drink. It's not inexpensive, but it was worth every penny to us.

Our server was wonderful - she was friendly, attentive, and helpful. When we asked how long she had worked there she surprised us by saying "2 months" and that this is her first serving job. She performed like a seasoned server so keep her with you!

Stefanie and Elvie provided excellent service!!! Took care of any issues that came up while we were there. The door man, Charles, walked us to the elevator and took our party directly to the door. Every staff member that we came in contact with was very knowledgeable and helpful. Will definitely be back!!!!
