Stardust Club, Kansas City

I’ve been here several times over the past few years after some friends from another bar told me about it. (As many times as I have been here, I can’t believe I’ve never taken any interior pictures.)

This is one of those places you have to be buzzed into, so you need to either be a member or look like you know what you’re doing and not a troublemaker.

The owner is nice and will treat you well, as long as you respect her and the place. But if you aren’t drinking, or if you start bothering other customers, you’ll be shown the door in a heartbeat.

I’ve never managed to sit at the bar here, it’s just about always full. There’s a few small bar tables and a decent sized stage that’s mostly used for karaoke. In the far back is a pool table and an area where a buffet is occasionally set up. There’s also a small dance floor in the corner by the stage.

There’s a kitchen too, but I never seem to get here before it closes so I can’t say anything about the food.

The clientele is very blue collar, a working class bar populated by an interesting assortment of well-weathered characters.

I haven’t been in as much lately as the regulars I knew here have moved on, but I try to drop in every once in a while.
