If you happen to be in KC during the summer and it’s a Thursday, Friday, or Saturday, stop what you’re doing and head to Panther’s Place. This bar feels like hanging out in your best friend’s backyard (if your friend is an incredible gardener and also collects vintage vans, that is). It’s possible to just stay here all night: you may arrive to have just one Aperol spritz, some pizza, or a sandwich, and then suddenly it’s closing time. This is a great alternative to all the sweaty concert-goers at local music venue Power and Light, especially when you’d rather be outside with your friends in this sort-of-secret garden.
