It is where I saw the best concert ever, thanks to Frank. I got to see Rusted Root. AMAZING The venue is now my favorite ANY WHERE. everyone has an amazing seat. The drinks are reasonable unlike other places (where you can't even see the stage in most seat) You can afford to have a few drinks. Everyone is laid back, It's time to have fun and listen to some great music when you go to knuckleheads. Thanks again Frank You Rule, and gave Sheila and Rick the Best night this year yet and dough that it will be beat. Rock on.......

Some of the other reviewers have complained about the ""acoustics"" (a misnomer, as they are usually talking about hearing a sound system). But over the last year, Knuckleheads has dramatically revised their sound system, installing new sound boards, amps and speakers. In the last month, they've replaced the roof over the main interior stage, and will be building a new stage soon.
It's actually a complex: There is a main interior stage that can hold several hundred people, a back room that can hold a few dozen (and often different acts playing in both places) and an exterior stage during the summer ( they rotate the sound board to face the interior or exterior stage). The outside concerts are the most fun - there is a boxcar that serves as a seating area.

The bands we have seen have been wonderful...unfortunately, the acoustics of the place are horrible. Just good enough to realize the talent but bad enough to make you regret the $12.25-$25.00 cover. Will give it another try and probably go back many times because it's one the coolest and unique places in K.C.
Although this is widely regarded as a blues mecca in the KC metro area, Knuckleheads' Levee Town is one of those jam bands who use the venue as a showcase for their friends and relatives. Despite being second on the signup sheet, I waited an hour and had two beers (at $3/pint) before packing it in. All in all, it's family friendly (despite the bikers), the food's OK (they have generic Italian) and there's plenty of Boulevard on tap. For musicians looking to strut their stuff, you'll want to take your money and time elsewhere.

Here's another place where the session hosts use the venue as a showcase for their family and friends. I waited an hour despite being second on the signup sheet, finally walking out after two pints at $3 apiece. Food's OK (they have Italian available) and there's plenty of Boulevard on tap. It's family friendly despite the bikers, but if you're planning to play, take your money and efforts elsewhere.

Best little dive in KC, if you can find it! Go to the city market, drive east, follow the yellow signs.
We don't go there to eat, but we do enjoy a cold beer, great music and decent folks.
No snobs, no blender, so don't order a pina colada, but the beer is always cold and the margaritas in the plastic cups are so very refreshing when it's hot outside.
Great patio in good weather, cozy little dive full of hot blues when its cold outside, compliments to the owner, great job.
Knuckleheads Rocks!!!!!! Tampa Florida could use a PLACE JUST LIKE THIS We have nothing and everyone in KC has this Great place, great entertainment and talk about FUN !!!!!!!!! I will come as many times as I can everytime I RETURN to my Home town Kansas City "I'm not in Kansas anymore" There's no place like KNUCKLEHEADS

Basically under a viaduct just east of Isle of Capri, hard to get to, but NO PAIN NO GAIN. I have found generally bands are worth cover charge. Blues, Rockabilly, and the like. You know: workin' man's music. Refreshingly devoid of jazz and the rich people that listen to it. Cheap beer and drinks but bring green stuff cause its cash only. Also Crush and IBC in the glass bottle. Limited food menu that's reasonably priced.
I can't say enough about this place, so go see for yourself.
