Kansas City is the happening place for Jazz for one reason ... Lonnie McFadden and his new club, Lonnie's Reno Club. You cannot live in Kansas City, like Jazz, and not have been a part of a least one unforgettable evening of exquisite cocktails and fine dining and the kind of Jazz entertainment that that takes you back in time to the swinging, bluesy sounds of artists like Count Basie and Charlie Parker, if you really want to have lived! This is not merely an entertainment show ... it is an entire experience you will not want to miss! You are greeted with a complimentary champagne cocktail and ushered into the the beautiful night club, reminiscent of the 30's to begin your evening's festivities. The cocktails are fabulous, the food absolutely scrumptious, and the entertainment ... there is nothing like it in all of Kansas City. Five Stars!!!

If you have never seen Lonnie McFadden perform, I'm not sure what you are waiting for...He is Kansas City Jazz History performing in front of you and putting on a great show. The Reno Club he opened with the Ambassador Hotel is still being fixed from a busted pipe and he says it will be reopened in a couple of weeks. The food served is excellent, the pacing was perfect to enjoy the show while we comfortably ate our way through the meal. The service was attentive but not annoying.
This is a true throwback to the days of when Kansas City Jazz was the standard of style, class and entertainment. Grab some friends, show some style and have a night to remember

This was probably one of the best experiences we've had in ages! The service started when we got off the elevator and were presented with a complimentary champagne cocktail. We were seated and served very quickly. Lonnie and the band were FABULOUS! The food was absolutely wonderful. We were celebrating two birthdays the evening we attended and both commented that it was the best evening they'd had in a long time! We will be back frequently!

We had an amazing evening! Lonnie is a very talented performer whose shows we have enjoyed for many years! He sings, dances, and plays trumpet. His songs bring joy and happiness just as he does with his great smile! His new club provides a great meal with great service to provide the total nightclub experience! We will return!

Like stepping back in time to a jazz club in the 1940’s, Lonnie is the BEST entertainer, horn player, singer, storyteller of Kansas City Jazz age and Count Basie, Charlie Parker etc. the food was excellent and the service 10 STARS! I would recommend this venue to any age group! We will be back!

Lonnie puts on a great show, every time! However I felt a couple things would make this experience better! The food was at best very average. Specially for $85/person. The steak had no flavor and the chicken cordon bleu was over cooked.also, Lonnie needs way more room to move around and do what he does best, ENTERTAIN. He stuck in that little space on the stage and barely can move. When I saw him at Plaza III it was great bc he had space to move around, dance and interact with the crowd. It was great!

We have gone to see Lonnie for years. But this experience was definitely something special and completely unforgettable. What I love the most were the stories and details Lonnie shared of the history of jazz in Kansas City. that is what made the show extra special as it was a true appreciation of our heritage and a demonstration of Kansas City pride. I really loved the fresh spin that he put on some of the old songs, it made them very exciting. Not only is he a phenomenal entertainer/musician but the rest of the musicians were absolutely outstanding. I personally have never seen a live show in Kansas City with this much talent.

Lonnie is a Kansas City legend! It is an honor to get to see him and his band perform their captivating show. Lonnie exudes energy, happiness and gratitude. His authentic talent is unmatched - whether singing, playing trumpet, tap dancing or storytelling, Lonnie is a true performer. The meal and staff were also excellent at Lonnie’s Reno Club. It is a special place for a memorable night!

The experience was absolutely fabulous. I love the small venue as it makes it very intimate. Would be nice to have a small area to dance. Martini was overpriced for size. Food was very good. Definitely will be a place we'll frequent.

Incredible evening at Lonnie's Reno club last night. We were lucky enough to get reservations on somewhat short notice but had never been, and had honestly never heard of Lonnie's. Not being a true jazz lover I can't say I was terribly excited but the reviews were great so I opened my mind and away we went. Lonnie's is in the Ambassador Hotel, which is a treasure on it's own. Valet parking is included and concierge service was immediate and so friendly. As a matter of fact all that we encountered were over the top happy and friendly, which had to put a smile on our faces and began to sway my expectations in an entirely different direction. We were greeted with a champagne cocktail upon entry and shown to our table - front and center as luck would have it! At first I was concerned that it might be too loud, but as the night went on it was clearly perfect. At times we felt that we were at a private serenade just for us. In the beginning there was a three piece band playing, but soon after Lonnie came out and the true entertainment began as they played together. Lonnie was funny, handsome, versatile and extremely talented. This type of entertainment is rare and unfortunately nothing like what we see in most venues. Lonnie's dance moves were smooth and stylish, and his tap moves had everyone shouting and clapping. And he can sing and play horns just as well! It was a true evening to remember and we will definitely be returning - with friends!

Reservation process easy. Our table size (4 people) was appropriate with good views of stage & room. Food was great. Server was awesome! Entertainment was fun, captivating & just what we were looking for. Lonnie was fantastic!! Pricing is a little steep though. Great for special occasions once in awhile.

Lonnie is the consumate performer: singer, trumpet player, tamp dancer. Plus, he's just a sweet and friendly guy. And he performs with such great energy! The food and service were also excellent. Our wait staff were friendly and awesome. I wish the menu was more expansive so we could go more often and not feel like we're having the same meal, but that's a small issue in an otherwise great experience.

The new, Best Jazz Club in Kansas City. Kansas City's #1 Entertainer is here, along with 3 more of Kansas City's finest jazz musicians providing world-class performances. The food is exquisite, served by the most attentive and professional servers in town. Lonnie's Reno Club is the place for enjoying outstanding food and jazz in a comfortable friendly environment.
