Night owls get a bad rap. So what if you like to sleep in? You’re still productive. You’re just on another schedule. You’re on the moon’s time. When you’re in Overland Park, here’s what to do under the twinkling Overland Park night sky.


Gametime District

open until 10 PM

Gametime District consists of Gametime Bar and Grill, Exp Bar, VIVO Live, and LEVELUP Arena. This new entertainment district is a cluster of restaurants, live music, large patios with yard games, gaming and esports, and plenty of TVs to watch…well, sports. LEVELUP is one of the nation’s largest gaming venues. It’s a place for serious gamers. But it’s also a good place to grab a beer and beat your kids at Mario Kart too. Night owls create night owls, right?


Sheridans’s Frozen Custard

open until 10 PM

Early birds have their coffee. Night owls have their ice cream. Or frozen custard. This walk-up dessert place offers custard in a wide range of flavors: Mexican Hot Chocolate, Fresh Strawberry Shortcake Sundae, or Key Lime Concretes. Custard is smoother and denser than ice cream because there’s less air whipped into it. It’s also served a little less frozen than ice cream.


I Am Frozen Dessert Café

open until 9 PM

If we’re talking about desserts – there’s another place you should stop by. It’s open until 9 PM, but it’s definitely one to start the late evening. This friendly little spot in Overland Park serves shaved cream. It’s a hybrid of ice cream and shaved ice. Think: the texture of fluffy snow mixed with creamy ice cream. And try the honey toast! You need those calories to get you through the night! I Am Frozen Dessert Café also sells coffee if like to be an extra night owl.



open until midnight

TopGolf is an outdoor, three-tiered golf range where the weather is always perfect for a round of golf, even in the rain and snow. And your kid might be better than you – just sayin’. TopGolf is a well-known night spot for dates, families, or just a bunch of friends so you’ll need to reserve a bay in advance. The rooftop has fire pits and live music and down below there is a full-service bar and restaurant. Lots of dessert options too!


Prairiefire Summer Music Series

open until 10 PM

Every Thursday night, head to Prairefire for some drinks, dinner, shopping, and bocce bowl or bowling at Pinstripes (open until 10 PM). The best part? Free live concerts under the stars. Prairefire closes off the streets to allow you to enjoy some of Kansas City’s best bands. Bring a lawn chair, pick out one of Priariefire’s patios or do what night owls do best – dance in the streets. Everyone knows night owls perked up by the moon.


Coach’s Bar and Grill

open until midnight

There are two Coach’s in Overland Park. The best part is their patios. The 135th location has a rooftop with one of the most incredible views of a Kansas sunset. The patio off College has lounge chairs and firepits. Besides the notable patios, there’s a great late-night menu, and sports memorabilia line the walls. It’s a nice place to grab a night cap.
