The 3 a.m. closing time is one of the best things about our city. So after the first wave of bars issues last call at 1:30 a.m., finding the perfect place to spend the next hour is a must for any self-respecting Kansas City drinker. That's why we head to the News Room to continue the lushery. This gritty midtown dive, which serves up cheap drinks and has a stellar jukebox, attracts an interesting mix of frat boys, hipsters and the sketchy. When viewed through a haze of drunkenness, the assortment can make for quite the entertaining end to the night. And we can't help but gloat: Take that, Denver and Boston, with your 2 a.m. closing times!
