Kansas City Barbeque – Top Gun Bar
Kansas City Barbeque is a restaurant and bar located in the harbor district of San Diego, California. Self-proclaimed as the “Top Gun Bar”, it is known for being the filming location for scenes used in the film Top Gun.
While working in San Diego, the location director for Paramount Studios visited Kansas City Barbeque for a beer. He liked the atmosphere and brought the bar to the attention of film director Tony Scott. Scott asked the owners to shut the establishment down for a day in order use the bar for shooting.
The bar was used in a scene in which Goose and Maverick (played by Anthony Edwards and Tom Cruise, respectively) belt out “Great Balls of Fire” while seated at the piano. The now famous line by Meg Ryan, “Goose, you big stuuuuuud! Take me to bed now or lose me forever!” was uttered in the dining area of Kansas City Barbeque. The bar was also used in the final scene, where the song “You’ve Lost That Lovin’ Feelin'” is heard playing on the jukebox.
