Sporting Kansas City has teamed up with The Cordish Companies to debut a new flagship entertainment concept in the Power and Light District. Located in a 21,000-square-foot space at 1370 Grand Blvd. on the second level of the Kansas City Live! Block, No Other Pub represents an extension of the Sporting KC brand into a new form of entertainment.
“Our club has celebrated many special moments at Power & Light in recent years, including the announcement of the rebrand in 2010,” Sporting Club CEO Robb Heineman said. “On that day, we stated our desire for Sporting Kansas City to become a true cultural brand for our fans. The opening of No Other Pub is a natural extension for us. We are excited to create more memorable experiences at P&L, and hopefully expose even more people to our brand.”
The announcement comes on the heels of an exciting wave of energy for the district, which attracted national attention from Royals watch parties and the opening of One Light Luxury Apartments.
“We are on a great run,” said Nick Benjamin, Executive Director of the Power & Light District. “In a lot of ways, our current momentum and growth, and that of downtown as a whole, really took off with our partnership with Sporting KC to host World Cup Watch Parties in 2010. The success of those events and the national attention they generated gave us lift we are still feeling today.”
No Other Pub is being marketed as a “playground for millennials” showcasing a social lounge with every local craft beer and spirit made in Kansas City. It will be home to Sporting KC watch parties and will serve as a transportation depot for fans before and after matches at Children’s Mercy Park.
