For over a decade now, you've known the multi-award winning Knuckleheads Saloon as The Best Damn Roadhouse in the World, Where The Best Damn Musicians Play.  Fans, bands, and artists from around the world have made Knuckleheads Saloon in Kansas City a must-visit destination for the best in blues, roots, and rock and roll music.  

And now, Knuckleheads Saloon is proud and excited to announce the construction of Knuckleheads Garage, located just across the street from Knuckleheads Saloon.

The new Knuckleheads Garage music venue will allow us to increase our winter capacity by three or four times that of the current Knuckleheads Saloon.  With the Garage, we'll be able to bring in bands and artists that are too big for the Saloon, giving fans another music venue choice here in Kansas City.  The possibilities are endless with the new space, and we've got plenty of surprises planned, but we need your help to get started!

We're asking for your pledges to help us with construction start-up costs and to get the building up to both safety standards and city codes.  After that, we can get down to the real nitty-gritty of building what will surely become one of Kansas City's best live music venues, while retaining the down-home flavor that has made Knuckleheads Saloon the go-to music destination in the Midwest.

If you're a band or artist who have played Knuckleheads, or one of the many fans that have made Knuckleheads your second home - please help however you can so we can bring even more great live acts to Kansas City! 

Risks and challenges

This project is going to be quite a challenge. It involves renovating a huge garage space into a quality music venue - and that comes with its own unique set of problems. But then again, look what we did with a railroad boarding house built in 1887. We can do it, and you can be a part of something great!
