Some people drive for hours to visit Westport in Kansas City. We at the KC Improv Company get to call it home. Squeezed into a historic building along with a great coffee shop and a chill spot to grab a cold beer and a hot burger, we’ve got a pretty nice setup at the Kick Comedy Theater.
Westport Coffee House slings amazing java and homemade strawberry cake, and for fun, see if you can spot our poster from 2012 near the Ms. Pacman machine. If it’s later in the day and you’re not looking to get some work done, The Green Room is the perfect place to grab a bite to eat with your friends before one of our Friday or Saturday shows. If you don’t finish your Rieger Kansas City Whiskey Cocktail, favorite Boulevard beer or tater tots in time, bring it with you to the show… or grab another round to stay hydrated while you laugh.
Around us is a whole great neighborhood of new and classic Kansas City options to try. Looking for a nice dinner out? Head to our neighbor Char Bar for some barbeque and lawn games, Beer Kitchen for a nice craft beer or Port Fonda for a great Mexican dinner or brunch. Californo’s is a personal favorite of ours.
If you’re going out on a weekend night, make sure to hit Sailor Jack’s, Throwback, Westport Icehouse, Westport Saloon or Buzzard Beach. We highly suggest visiting one of our late night Kansas City Improv Festival partners Off Key for private-room karaoke and a tower of beer or cider Westport is a great place to start and end a great evening, no matter how late.
Our Kansas City district also has you covered for a sweet snack. For something on the cold side, Westport Ice Cream Bakery or feeling a little more funky, Donutology has a fun, customizable doughnut for every sweet tooth.
Westport is the perfect place for almost any occasion, from eating to drinking, shopping to entertainment. From a first date to a bachelorette party to an anniversary outing. We hope your next trip to our amazing neighborhood includes a KC Improv Company show at the Kick Comedy Theater and a fun night out with friends and family.
