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.

For the most up-to-date information about events + shows, follow us on social media! Check us out on Instagram @WoodysKC.

The best way to know what’s going on is to check us out on social media! We pride ourselves on having a party every night of the week! Here is a rundown of out reoccurring monthly events!

Decade Night: Every First Friday of the Month, we throw it back to a different decade!

Bear Bust: Every first Saturday is BEAR BUST, the ultimate party for bears, cubs, and hairy men aficionados! With special guest star go-go’s, drink specials, and much much more!

PYNK: Every second Friday of the month is our monthly sapphic night. This event celebrates everything about female identities. PYNK is about teamwork, networking, socializing, business building, empowerment, love, good company, and music. 

DOWN LOW: Hosted by our resident Amanda, this party is for those who crave house music. Amanda never fails to bring in special guest DJs, and always packs the house all night long. 

Serving Country: Every third Friday, the cowboys come out to play! It’s a country takeover night, with boots, hats, and much much more.

THICC: Every third Saturday, it’s time to flaunt what you’ve got with DJ SirQueen. Come as you are, or as you want to be for a night of body positivity, and good beats!

Body Euphoria: Every Fourth Friday, Lana Luxx presents an all-trans cast of performers for a night like no other. Not only are the performers incredible, but Lana also delivers decor and a photo booth! 

Happy Hour: We have a happy hour, 4 PM – 6 PM, Tuesday – Friday!

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.
