Power & Light District’s Next Big Dress Code Debacle: Thongs at The Jones?

Will thong-wearing hotties corner the market on the Power & Light District’s next gargantuan dress code controversy?

Word recently leaked by Tony’s Kansas City of an outdoor, rooftop pool atop the hoity-toity new Cosentino’s Downtown Market raises that and a number of questions.

Rafael Architects Web site describes the pool thusly:

“RAI is pleased to announce a new project on the roof of Cosentino’s Downtown Market at 1200 Walnut Street, Kansas City, Missouri, a 20,000 (square foot) Roof Top Pool Project. The project is located within The Kansas City Power & Light District and will provide a pool, sand volleyball court, sunbathing deck with lounge seating, cabana seating and two bars. The facilities will have shower wash off located adjacent to the pool area, changing rooms, lockers and a toilet facility.

“The project will be managed by Cordish who represents The Kansas City Power & Light District. Expected opening date is Memorial Weekend May 23rd and will stay open thru Labor Day Weekend September 7th.”

Insiders say the new pool will be called The Jones and memberships – perhaps in the neighborhood of $700 per summer – will be available in addition to a daily cover charge of perhaps $25.

As for the pool’s nomenclature, you may recall that the massive, legendary Jones Store department store stood for decades at the corner of 12th and Main.

Sound familiar?

For several summer’s Woodside Health & Tennis Club in Westwood, Kansas has had the hottest beach party scene going.
