For almost 30 years, the Outland Complex has been a staple in the live music scene of Springfield, MO. Providing the widest variety of entertainment, The Complex houses three interconnected venues: The Outland, The Outland Ballroom and Odyssey Lounge.
The Outland has an intimate vibe with booth seating in the bar area and a stage in the adjoining room. Open 7 days a week hosting local and touring bands, DJ’s, stand-up comics, and a weekly open mic night. Largely unchanged since it replaced the SOUTHLAND Restaurant in the late 80’s (the sign was missing the ‘S’ and ‘H’, hence the name), the room is soaked in live music history.
The Outland Ballroom is the big brother of the Outland, located on the second floor with twice the capacity and an open feel. Featuring national level entertainers and musicians every week along with all the local favorites, the Ballroom has established itself as a premier venue in the Midwest. Don’t forget to check out the ’59 Cadillac on the bar!
Odyssey Lounge (formerly the Highlife and Front Of House Lounge) completes the triad with its own stage and eclectic atmosphere. Serving as a main entrance to The Ballroom, Odyssey Lounge provides another choice to patrons and also includes Sweet EMOtion, a walkup service Pop Punk/Emo-themed ice cream parlor serving oat milk-based (vegan) ice creams, fruit Dream Whips (Dole Whip) and by-the-slice pizza.
9 a.m.–1 a.m.
