Crosstown Station is an exciting new music venue coming to Kansas City this fall. Located at 1522 McGee, we are in the heart of downtown wedged between the Crossroads Arts District and all the new development of KC Live and the Sprint Center.

Built from the ground up, Crosstown Station will be the place in Kansas City to see and hear your favorite bands. A true live music space cleverly designed so that everyone in the room has a perfect view of the stage, while also creating the perfect atmosphere to hangout and have a drink when the music stops. So what makes Crosstown Station different from those other bars with a stage in the corner?

From the first day our focus has been to provide the best environment possible to put on a live concert. In the conception phase, we concluded that people want unobstructed views of the stage when they pay to see their favorite band. Simple right? People standing in back should be higher than those in the front. The stage should be elevated enough so that people can see all of the performers even the drummers. All of these ideas brought us to our goal. Give our customers as many elements of a large-scale concert while maintaining the atmosphere of a smaller music club.

We started to tackle these ideas in the design phase where we added features to ensure that our sound and lighting production would be second to none. We used an acoustic modeling program to guarantee that all the music coming from our stage is hitting you loud and clear. The way it is supposed to be and with vibrant lighting. Lots and lots of lighting. Lighting so good you are going to have to come down to Crosstown Station and see it with your own eyes. If you come in during Happy Hour you will likely see an acoustic performer or trio up on our bar stage. That way you can get your fix for live music and grab a slice of our pizza for dinner. We will have you home by bedtime.
