Old buildings in the night have a certain aura. The Drum Room is part of the President Hotel, located downtown Kansas City in the Power and Light District. The President, built in 1926, is on the National Register of Historic Places. The Drum Room opened in 1940 and that year had entertainers such as Frank Sinatra, Count Basie and Benny Goodman, and regulars such as Charles Lindberg, Ben Siegel and Meyer Lansky. Other appearances in this historic venue include Sammy Davis Jr., Tommy Dorsey, Glenn Miller, The Marx Brothers and Pasty Cline, and it is still going strong today.
