River Aces Lounge, North Kansas City

This is a very popular dive in North Kansas City. While it’s pretty quiet with an older crowd earlier in the day (as one would expect), at night — especially on the weekend — this place is jam packed.

It’s not a very big bar, but it had enough room for pool, a couple of games, and space for a DJ. There is live entertainment every night — either karaoke or a DJ — and it’s all-request.

Beer prices are good here, some of the cheapest pitchers around. Definitely a good deal.

Things can get dicey here late at night so keep your guard up. The bouncers are good at taking care of troublemakers, but fights do sometimes break out that have spilled into the parking lot across the street on rare occasion. I don’t think it’s enough of a problem to avoid this place, just be smart and stay cool.
