    This is a very beautiful building! If you get coffee make sure you try the blend especially made for the venue! Check both bars to see which one has it.

    World class architecture. Stunning several story glass view overlooking Kansas City. Helzberg hall is all natural light grained wood with great acoustics and a stunning modern design pipe organ.

    Drinks are outrageously expensive and not that good. But the rest of this place is AMAZING. Great views, wonderful performances, solid staff, etc.

    Best venue in the Midwest. Only downside is congested exit, but that's because it's always packed!

    The second floor bar is far less crowded pre-show than downstairs since people don't expect it to be there if they haven't been before. Tip doesn't apply to intermission when they figure it out.

    Classic oncorked. The building is absolute fantastic. If you ever come to Copenhagen go visit the DR concert hall - it's even more fantastic.
