Welcome to Woody's KC


Welcome to Woody’s, Kansas City’s premier queer space. We pride ourselves on our diverse and welcoming staff and events that match. Our goal is to provide a safe, fun, and inclusive experience to everybody who steps into our bar.

Daddy Issues: It’s all in the name. This party is all about daddies, and those that love them. Drink specials for men over 40. (First Friday of the month.)

U-Haul: This event celebrates everything about female identities. U-Haul is about teamwork, networking, socializing, business building, women empowerment, love, good company, and music. And of course, it’s about lesbians. (Second Saturday of the month.) 

HE.R: Hosted by our resident DJ, Wstendgrl aka Cquence, this party is a celebration of masculinity, femininity, and fluidity. This night is all about dancing. (Third Friday of the month.)

Discobit: Music lovers rejoice — this event is for you. This themed party is for anybody who wants to dress up and dance it out. (Monthly TDB)

Locker Room: This is a male-dominated, underwear encouraged party. We feature two DJs, and offer clothing checks to accommodate the theme. This party happens quarterly — it’s too hot and heavy to happen every month. (Quarterly TBD) 

Bear Cave After Party: Bear Cavers — no need to hibernate early. We host the official after-party. (First Saturday of the month.) 

Happy Hour: We have a happy hour, 4 PM – 6 PM, Tuesday – Friday! $3 wells and $3 domestic bottles!

In 2019, on the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Riots, we built our PRIDE stairs to pay homage to our LGBTQ+ community.  Since then they’ve become a highlight of our space.  Check out our patio for the “picture perfect” moment!

Acceptance and inclusivity are our core beliefs. We’ve built a place that everyone in our LGBTQ+ community can enjoy and feel safe. We also believe as a space that holds space for our community that we have a responsibility to our community. Our tenets of our space include:

  • Respect the space.
  • People of all colors, shapes, and sizes are invited to join us!
  • Consent is sexy and required!
  • And pay your tab.

We love our community. That’s why we do a series of “Give Back,” events where we “party with a Purpose!” For example, during our summer Retox event, we work together to give a portion of our sales of the event to donate to our local LGBTQ+  organizations. If you are a Kansas City LGBTQ+ organization that would like information on our “Give Back” opportunities, connect with us through Facebook.
