The downtown location of one of KC's oldest bars draws in patrons with the promise of satisfaction from gigantic chicken wings, BLTs and cold beer. Just off of Broadway, the friendly, no-frills dive gets a good mix of white-collar workers, loft dwellers and occasionally, day laborers. Once a popular spot for local aspiring rappers, the Peanut has since shut down its Sunday night "Hip Hop and Hot Wings" and put the focus on food and football games. Open until 1:30 a.m., the Peanut is definitely casual, neighborhoody and a good pick for happy-hour office gatherings.
If theres a better reason to go to the Peanut than the holy combination of hot wings and beer, it could only be the strong pours and dive-bar prices. This mecca of no-frills casual offers the spiciest (and arguably the tastiest) wing sauce in town, so go ahead and hunker down and order the hot stuff alongside your favorite draft. Dont forget the napkins. The menu also features fried mushrooms, chili-cheese fries and burgers with portions big enough to share.
