In 2004, at age 75, Gary Mace, a pool enthusiast, local jeweler and long time resident of the Kansas City Northland, pursued his lifelong dream to open a world class pool hall. The Brass Rail established a new benchmark in the industry as a upscale & classy environment to showcase pool & billiards gaming.
In 2007, Gary passed away leaving his dream to languish without his leadership and passion. The Brass Rail was in jeopardy of being re-purposed as a strip mall.
In 2008, Shane Bright, a local Kansas City resident and entrepreneur, sought to re-establish the Brass Rail as the marquee establishment it once was.
Along with his team of experienced hospitality veterans, the Brass Rail has been transformed into more than just an average pool hall. Brass Rail Restaurant, Sports Bar & Pool Hall serves quality food & drinks and strives to set the benchmark for pool, billiards and additional recreational gaming in Kansas City. The Brass Rail is a local Kansas City owned and operated establishment.
