Overland Park, Kan.
“Klassy” with a “K,” the Red Balloon is tucked into a strip mall with a tattoo place and cheap Mexican take-out. The first time I stepped into The Red Balloon, I didn’t know what to say. So I sang instead. The Red Balloon is Kansas City’s only bar exclusively dedicated to karaoke seven days a week. If you hate bar fights, oversized quantities of light beer, and karaoke, don’t even think about setting your pretty little foot inside this place.
