Majestic Kansas City

The Majestic Steakhouse and Jazz ClubIn Kansas City for work, some colleagues and I went in search of some live jazz last evening.  Our host suggested The Majestic Steakhouse – just two blocks from our hotel.

The Majestic is located in the historic Fitzpatrick building (the name is still outlined in tile on the entranceway), a building with a colorful past.  Built in 1911 as a saloon and bordello, it became a popular speakeasy during prohibition – and that basement hideaway is now the home of the jazz club.

The Bram Wijnands trio (piano, drums, and sax/flute) was good – and made up of a couple of colorful characters. 

For many people, Kansas City is a real surprise in the heartland.  I had been in town before with a group of National Trust supporters and knew we were in for a treat.  We heard last night they are “down” to only 70 barbecue joints and they have about an equal number of jazz venues.

The Majestic and Kansas City – recommended!

More to come…
