TKC EXCLUSIVE!!! KANSAS CITY'S FIRST LOOK AT KELLY'S ROOFTOP DECK!!!
Because TKC is the juggernaut of blogs, just last night I received an invite to the Grand Opening of Randal's Rooftop Deck at Kelly's.
At first glance I was pleased with the view.
The bar was open but I was too busy getting photographs to drink.
Again, I've wondered if the view from this bar will save Westport.
The place has always had loyal regulars and pictured above are the wives of owners. I didn't capture it but the one in the foreground was wearing some neat looking leather pants.
The turnout was pretty good but not as packed as I had thought on this First Friday.
What I liked is that the staircase leading up to the deck is filled with Kelly's history and the tribute list of donors who helped build the place is just as prominently featured as the three flat screen TVs.
There are a lot of variables involved but this will undoubtedly be a choice spot during this Spring and Summer and is maybe the last, best chance at reviving Westport or at least earning some biz away from the clutches of the P&L District.
