PnL has the "fashion" district (guido clothes), AMC Main, Sprint Center, and the bars and restaurants in the middle. The actual loop downtown of Kansas City has almost nothing that interests me outside of the Negro League Baseball Museum and a few of the events that the Sprint Center draws. I think a lot of the visitors to PnL are out of towners, because the majority of the people that I know from KC won't touch PnL with a 10 ft pole. It is overpriced compared to the rest of the city, and also has a reputation for attracting the Jersey Shore types. Whether that reputation is warranted or not is debatable, but I find myself avoiding PnL in favor of Westport or Martini Corner.
PnL does have a really big TV (projection) though, so they got that going for them, which is nice.
