Open from 4pm to 2am, in evening Mac's might remind one of "Cheers", a relaxing place with friendly, familiar faces every day. After 10:00 the younger crowd comes in and Mac's transforms into an energized dance club.
(We were invited in before opening to take some photos. The photo above with the crowd is one we found on the Internet.)
For entertainment, there are dart leagues Wednesdays and Thursdays, and a DJ on Tuesdays, Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays. There is also a live band once a month.
Mac's is where KC native and rising star Tech N9ne launched his career. Some of Mac's guests also include comedian Reynaldo Rey, as well as the Blue Angels, both of whom stop in whenever they are in town.
In business for 10 years, Mac's is owned by the McKenzie family. Ken McKenzie runs the club, and his wife Etta is also active in the local business community.
Mac's is on the north side of Blue Ridge Blvd, a quarter mile northeast of US 71 Hwy. Most of the parking is in the rear, so don't be scared away if the front lot looks full.
