The Grand Emporium is a true classic dive, dark (these are 4 and 5-second exposures to show the room,  in addition to the flash exposure to image the people), decor is "original" (never designer-touched - note the years of posters on the walls which saves on the high price of wall paper), great live music, is wildly popular, is a true hole-in-the-wall as far as the size across the front of the building and is one of THE KC nightclubs to go to.
