The roots run deep in KC and nowhere more so than The Blue Room. Live jazz Monday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday recalls the sounds of a time not so long ago when Kansas City was a prominent stop on the circuit of traveling jazz musicians. The decor evokes the area’s storied past and as part of the American Jazz Museum, visitors and locals alike can step back in time into the heyday of this uniquely American art form. The cover charge is reasonable on the weekends ($10) and admission is free on Monday and Thursday. Check the website listings for larger jazz events at the nearby Gem Theater.
