Knuckleheads Saloon is a music venue in Kansas City, Missouri. The facility is a complex of four stages - a large outdoor stage featuring a converted caboose to one side as a VIP seating area, an indoor stage and a 64 seat lounge known as the "Retro Room." The last doubles as a music oriented church on Wednesday evenings when it is renamed the "Gospel Lounge." Live music can be presented on all Four stages at once.

Outdoor Stage and Courtyard
This is where we have great outdoor shows. We have a large horse-shoe type deck that has clean sights to the stage and dance floor. What more can your ask for than to see your favorite artists under the beautiful skies of Kansas City!
Back in 1899, Electric Park was built on the grounds where we are today. Electric Park had a large seated-bandstand and the later park had the first outdoor stage in Kansas City. Today, over 100 years later, here we are with an outdoor stage as well.
The Garage is our new venue we have accessed across the street from The Saloon. It has a great Industrial feel, but with a cool Funky Vibe to it, A stage that is visible from all areas
The Saloon Main Indoor Stage
This where it all began, starting out with some of Kansas City's (and the world's) best Open Jam Sessions - hosting such artists as Tower of Power, JJ Grey, Leon Russell and many, many others - it has the coolest vibe anywhere and music just pours out of the walls.
The Gospel Lounge
The Gospel Lounge is where folks come from all over to hear some great music in an intimate setting. Every Wednesday night Pastors Carl and Sharon Butler present a Good Music, Good Message session with local or national special guests - It's Music for Your Soul!
On other nights, the Gospel Lounge hosts some of the greatest talents in the world in this comfortable, intimate, and unique setting - all of which make for a great Listening Experience.
