Time Out Lounge is a lot like your coolest friends basement circa 1998, complete with tunes by Dave Matthews Band, Fiona Apple and Eminem. The open space has a bar and a few tables at one end, flat gray carpeting, and four well-maintained pool tables. The laid-back hang was expanded earlier this year to make room for the pool tables, nearly doubling the size of the place, and it now feels like a miniature pool hall -- especially Mondays through Wednesdays, when league play takes over. The staff is friendly and the drinks are cheap, making this an ideal stop on the way home from a Royals or Chiefs game.
