On the first friday of the month you can get free salsa dancing lessons. So much fun. I do wish they did it more. Great drink specials and always a great time.

Visited KC 2 years ago and had the best time at the Grand Emporium. Move here this past May and was sad to see it was not the same. Hopefully the new owners will go out of business and someone will bring back the BluesQ!

Cons: no more blues

The new G.E. is way different, but that is not to say it is not awesome! Saturday night is the only night that could be considered "gay" night. The staff is always friendly, helpful and just plain FUN! Especially the back room bartender,

How sad that a KC music institution as beloved as the Grand Emporium could have changed in such a BAD BAD way. The new owners ruined a beloved local blues watering hole and everything KC loved about The Grand is GONE GONE GONE. They

This is NOT the same place reviewed in 2002. The took an blues institution and turned it into a yuppie martini bar, but the editors of CitySearch won't let anybody tell you. Stay away from the NEW G.E.

The Grand Emporium should be rated number one. Wonderful music, wonderful atmosphere, couldn't ask for more.

I have frequented the Grand Emporium since the early '80's, and have seen some of the best Blues and Rock acts in the country there. Being a Blues officiando, the G.E. is the best I have seen. It has won the Best Blues Club in the U.S.

I was travelling through Kansas City a couple summers ago and wandered in here on a local's recommendation. I had the best time here. The band wasn't really my favorite genre -- swing -- but I still dug it. Even let myself be dragged out
