In case you haven’t heard, Kansas City is bursting at the seams with an amazing bar scene and night life full of thousands of young adults just waiting to go out. Instead of a typical night out where you may or may not hit only one or two bars max, we at Sarah Scoop encourage to host your own full-blown KC bar crawl for you and your friends. Especially in Westport, there are so many choices at your fingertips. Check out this list of places to include when you go bar crawling.

I remember when this opened just recently and people were freaking out and they just haven’t stopped since! With over 100 taps, 30 of which are local, this is your bar crawl DREAM. If you’re hungry and want some food with your beer, try the Crack Fries– you can’t go wrong.
Westport Flea Market-Bar-Grill

When hunger strikes in the middle of your bar crawl, Wesport Flea Market-Bar-Grill is exactly what you’ll be needing. Also known as “The Flea,” this bar-grill is claimed to serve up the “Best Burger in Kansas City.” Karaoke? Trivia? Pool? Suffleboard? The Flea really has it all, I promise you.
Kelly’s Westport Inn

Kelly’s Westport Inn is a total Westport classic, having opened in 1945. This pub is said to be one of the oldest buildings (1850) in Kansas City and is now something of a tourist destination. Kelly’s really is a Kansas City as you can get.

Did someone say karaoke? Because off-key is the perfect place to go when your feeling the need to sing your heart out. I think we all get to that point sometimes, don’t we? Especially with friends, this is the perfect addition to your KC bar crawl so don’t miss it! For bigger parties, they also have suites and patios you can rent out!

This dive bar is the perfect way to top off your night as well as start your evening with an eclectic crowd from all over. The total dive-bar has 75 cent draws and $2.50 well drinks during their happy hours, 3-8pm. A regular favorite is playing “Achey Breaky Heart” on the Jukebox in the basement.
Now before you get started, don’t forget to plan your route, collect your friends, and HAVE FUN!
