There isn’t anything much more exhilarating than being in a loud, exciting environment cheering on your favorite team, and we’re here to help you enhance that experience. March Madness is here basketball fans, and KC|OP is the place to be for a slam dunk!

First things first, have you gotten your team’s gear? Rally House has you covered for just about any team you’re cheering for. Of course you’ll want to stop in Made in KC for a unique KC|OP souvenir as well.

Next up: breakfast. Chow down on a delicious pastry from McLains Market or, start on a healthier foot with some avocado toast.

First Half


If you enjoy rooftop decks and heated patios while watching your favorite team in the tournament, massive walls filled with TVs tuned to college basketball, Maloney's in downtown OP is a no-brainer, a proverbial layup. The hardest thing you will have to do while you are here is to keep track of all the scores. 

Half Time

Q39 BBQ in Overland Park

Just enough time to get fired up for the second half at Q39. With mouthwatering ribs, brisket, wings and more, you’ll leave satisfied with a belly full of BBQ. This Grand Champion BBQ hot spot also features hand-crafted cocktails to keep the party going into the second half.

Second Half

Dave and Busters Overland Park

Get your game on while you watch the game at Dave & Buster’s in Corbin Park. With an arcade floor filled with more than 150 games, there’s no shortage of MVP opportunities for you and your crew. And over at the full sports bar and restaurant, your game is playing on tons of massive HDTVs with full stadium sound. Add dozens of beer choices and premium bar selection and you’ve got the ultimate gameday headquarters.


KC Power and Light District

The game may be over but the fun sure isn’t! Your team has (hopefully) just won and it’s time to cut down the nets. The Power and Light District in Kansas City is every local and tourist’s favorite place to be. P&L is full of lively restaurants and bars, each with a different atmosphere. We highly recommend McFadden’s Sports Saloon for the ultimate sports experience. With over 30 HDTVs, there’s not one bad seat in the house.

If you use this guide as your KC|OP March Madness weekend playbook, nothing will get in the way of having a winning weekend, not even a busted bracket.
