The Blue Room is a museum by day and a working jazz club by night; part of the American Jazz Museum. Four nights a week, the Blue Room resonates with the sweet sounds of Kansas City jazz. As the only Kansas City club included in DownBeat magazine’s list of the Top 100 Jazz Clubs in the world, the Blue Room consistently books top name national and international entertainers.
Designed to resemble a 1930s nightclub, the Blue Room is a multifaceted exhibit focusing on the Kansas City connection to the evolution of jazz, featuring a wall of fame exhibiting the images of those local musicians that made the Kansas City-style swing.
While in the Blue Room, you can view “soundies” from a video jukebox that features performances of jazz greats such as Louis Armstrong, Charlie Parker, Billie Holiday, Fats Waller and John Coltrane. Alcoholic beverages are available at the bar and an appetizer buffet is available during Indigo Hour Friday evenings.
