KANSAS CITY DRINKERS DECLARE: JOHNNY KAW'S KILLING WESTPORT!!!



An evening tweet sent Kansas City booze hounds into a frenzy.

A quick overview despite MSM speculation . . .

Johnny Kaw's So... we are opening four more places in @Westport_KC

1- Jonathan’s “lounge / cocktail bar” 421 Westport Road (Spring)

2- Westport Event Space 427 Westport Road (February)

3- Shot Stop Westport 4120 Pennsylvania (Spring)

4- Bomb Bar Westport 4050 Pennsylvania (Summer)

It's not really news but that doesn't make the reactions any less hilarious.

Basically, and here's what local MSM is keeping quite, locals have posted a bunch of negative memes sharing their social media activism resistance, here's a quick peek at a few of my favorite in between outright cussing and threats from midtown pub patrons . . .



And so we ask . . .

WILL THIS THE JOHNNY'S KAWS TAKEOVER FINALLY KILL WESTPORT?!?

Some of the most loyal patrons seem to argue as much.



You decide . . .

Westport has been dead, this is just the final nail in the coffin.

This is it, this is the last effort to SAVE Westport, not kill it. If this doesn't work, it's yet another Banister mall.

Now it's a going to be a drinking strip mall. With some of the lamest bars out there. I thought hop cat was bad, these new places SUCK. Why are they closing Char Bar? Dumbest decision of all time.

I guess Westport was desperate to give P&L District an advantage.

Are they going to add a fourth Karaoke bar? That should make things really "fun"for the tourists.

I noticed that the Pitch got the story wrong this morning. They should have been on top of this. It's a shame that TKC is just quoting a tweet and still more accurate.

Westport is going the way of the plaza, nothing but lame offerings that don't have much to do with Kansas City.

TKC, Westport has been dead for 3 years. Please!

Nobody but tourists, thugs poseurs and visiting college idiots go here.

^^^^^^^^^ Sounds like a good time.

I, for one, welcome our new Kansas overlords.

Westport needs a couple of hip hop rap bars.

KCJd said...

^^^^^^^^^^ LOL!
God no. I think that might actually do the trick and kill it.

But I have to wonder if a whole district full of sports bars might be overkill.

Westport is suffering the same effect as the rest of the city. Too much overbuilding and speculation. It chases away the real business and real residents in order to try and get rich quick. Rarely works and what we're left with is nothing but empty buildings.

Oh God no not people looking to make an investment in property and start a business based on the previous businesses that have succeeded at the same location! Really don't understand why people are so upset about this without it you have bars that are struggling that really can't make it that don't stand a chance in today's Marketplace. Instead you've got a proven company with a track record of that knows what it's doing. Just don't see how this is a bad thing and I think the people who are complaining about it or just being overly sentimental. It is Christmas after all but regretting this kind of decision is sophomoric at best.

Why do drunks care where they get drunk? Way too much hand-wringing about this one I've seen some of the FB post and you think that they're killing somebody's dog. Get over it!

12:55--Would those be near the salon that specializes in dreds, fake fingernails, nail jewels and butt injections? I think Westport needs a pawn shop too.

^^^^^ +100

@ 2:26 is absolutely correct. Let's not get too sentimental and carried away with what Westport really is. Maybe one historic building and a bunch of quickly crafted stucco around it.

Oh yes just wait the tourists will fall all over themselves from all over the world for the privilege of visiting KCMO's sophisticated and historic Shot Stop and Bomb Bar. We'll need to expand the new airport design right now of course to include two dozen more gates that can hand Boeing 777's and Airbus 360's.

Shot Stop and Bomb Bar? Incredible and now all the tenants who will be moving into the OPUS apartment thing will have something to do!

2:26 You forgot they also do hair color and hair extensions.

I remember years ago a hot dog vendor in Westport got caught in an alley sucking off a homeless guy while shoving one of his hotdogs up his ass. There also used to be a popular local news anchor that would drive around and masturbate........and sometimes people would get murdered.

Why don’t they start up a whorehouse in Westport? Hire a bunch a hot young sluts and some hot MILFs looking to make some money and get fucked. It would at least be a commercial success.

Bevins said...

If that's a troll, it's BRILLIANT.

Nice work.

Actually picked that one out to read. Cracks me up.

Anonymous said...

Hey, could we explore the whorehouse idea just a bit further. That's the highlight of the discussion. Not sure if Westport has really explored that idea. But they should it's the only thing that will bring people back.

Westport is DONE. So many murders near there and shootings inside the district. The little gun trick isn't going to work, people have finally figured out the place is DANGEROUS.

There's nothing wrong with going there, you can still have a good time and the people watching is excellent but the days of the average person being able to hang around there until 3 o clock in the morning are OVER unfortunately. It was fun while it lasted.

The easy poon tang is in Leawood my friends. You are missing out.

Brosephus said...

This was a good year for westport really when you think about it.

They beat the crap out of that proud boy fuck.

That racist ass security guard got his ass fired.

And then an off duty smacked the shit out of a shooter and got a medal for it.

That is KC, that is my city.

Westport's glory days for relatively safe fun are DONE! Today's decent thirty-somethings have not been in that cray craphole since their mid college years (19 to 20 yr olds with fake IDs). Plenty of that demographic, and all ages, are hosting their friends at each other's homes. I know, from having constructed portions of basement bars, wine cellars, man-caves, and various entertainment features in kitchens/garages/guest houses/outdoor kitchens/etc.
