Remnants of Westport’s 19th-century charm color the neighborhood with historic buildings, old-style lampposts and tree-lined boulevards that almost beg for a long walk. Plug into KC’s live music scene with rousing acts at Riot Room, a local haven for finding that next great sound. Meanwhile, The Westport Saloon features music acts of a different tune, including roots, blues, rockabilly and more. Or hit the patio at Westport Ale House for craft beers and live sports watching. Catch an indie flick at Tivoli Cinemas, a movie theater that specializes in screening independent, documentary and foreign films. If live performances are more to your liking, check out The KC Improv Company for hilarious weekly comedy shows. Just next door, you’ll find Char Bar Smoked Meats & Amusements, an aptly-named barbecue restaurant with a killer outdoor patio and yard games, perfect for an afternoon or evening with good company. Just a block away, you’ll find Kelly’s Westport Inn, an iconic bar known for rowdy nights. Where to Shop Fun and funky gifts from colorful shops are this area’s specialty. Those with a love for all things kitchen-related must poke around in Pryde’s Old Westport, the triangular building where every nook and cranny is stuffed with must-have cooking tools. Get your next favorite KC T-shirt at The Bunker, a retailer that features locally produced apparel and fun gifts. Meanwhile, find locally inspired clothes, home goods and other hand-made necessities at Mid Coast Modern. Add to your record collection with vinyl both vintage and fresh at Mills Record Company. Tobacco aficionados flock to Fidel’s Cigar Shop, where premium products and accessories are always in stock. Where to Eat Westport’s watering holes like Julep (a whiskey bar) and Ça Va (a champagne lounge) attract young professionals in their 20s and 30s, but their menus appeal to travelers of all ages. Get authentic Mexican cuisine at Port Fonda, a perennial James Beard-nominee and known for its excellent, creative menu. Bluestem boasts inventive takes on American cuisine while Beer Kitchen and Mickey's Hideaway are both perfect before a concert or night out, making mouths water thanks to tasty gastropub menus and delicious drinks. Westport Flea Market dishes out one of the area’s most popular burgers, while a cup of joe from Broadway Café and Sunday brunch Denver Biscuit Company are sure to cure what ails you

Old Westport is a local hangout for many in KC. It is known as the original Kansas City. West bound settlers would stock up at the trading post in Westport before venturing into Kansas territory. Today it is a hub for trendy boutiques, eateries and a popular nighttime spot.
