About Us

Formerly known as The Bullpen, KC’s Neighborhood Bar and Grill is owned by Bill “KC” Papon. A lifelong resident of Kansas with deep ties to the community, Bill dreamed about providing the loyal, hardworking residents of Wyandotte County with a friendly, neighborhood watering hole. In 2002, he got his wish, and re-christened The Bullpen KC’s Neighborhood Bar and Grill.

Since opening their doors, KC’s has grown from a biker bar to a staple of the neighborhood. Several years back, new legislation sought to ban smoking in bars. Bill protected the KC’s family by recertifying KC’s as a private club in 2009 and offering private memberships at just $10 a year—the lowest fee allowable by law. To date, KC’s is the only bar in Johnson County where private smoking is still permitted.

Since making the move to private club, KC’s has built a solid reputation for friendly service, offering the most talented behind-the-bar staff this side of the river. Come for the classic cocktails and busty brews, but stay to try our one-of-a-kind, hungry man home cooking. KC’s offers delicious daily dinner specials, mouthwatering appetizers, and enticing entrees that will remind you of home. Don’t have time to dine with us? No problem! We offer a convenient option to order online, providing the tastiest to-go option in the metro area.

KC’s stands out with an unbeatable calendar of activities for members. The rotating events include Xtreme Bingo, karaoke competitions, dart tournaments, pool leagues, and annual member appreciation parties. Looking for a venue for your bachelor or birthday party? KC’s offers the ability to host private parties, including customizable package options. We’d be pumped to have you party with us.
