Musician Lonnie McFadden Opens Lonnie’s Reno Club

Musician Lonnie McFadden has long been a fixture of Kansas City’s local jazz scene. Now, he takes center stage at Lonnie’s Reno Club, a jazz joint underneath the Ambassador Hotel Kansas City, 1111 Grand Boulevard. The 1930s-inspired supper club is a nod to the original Kansas City Reno Club, the historic 12th and Cherry Streets venue where Count Basie made a name for himself. In addition to hearing McFadden and his jazz quartet, guests can enjoy a pre-fixe, three-course menu featuring timeless dishes like shrimp cocktail, beef Wellington and chocolate mousse, as well as classic and 30s-era cocktails, as part of a dinner and a show package. The club is open 6:30 p.m. to 11 p.m. Thursday, Friday and Saturday, with walk-in seating available after 9 p.m.
