    A speakeasy true and true, literally had to find it driving around a grimy alleyway. Love the stone walls and lit candles inside, just tell the mixologist what spirit you prefer and enjoy!

    It’s 5 years old and still going strong, thanks to Ryan Maybee’s solid cocktail program and intimate speakeasy atmosphere. This treasure is just downstairs from the Rieger Hotel Grill & Exchange. Read more

    My favorite bar in KC. Hidden and special with the best bartenders. Follow the menu or create your own boozy cocktail. Great escape!

    Do not miss this speakeasy. Multiple award winning cocktails and the best atmosphere; you'll feel like you're somewhere private, (and possibly illegal!) Text for a table, and DON'T BE LATE.

    One of the first speakeasies in town. Great cocktails with a posh atmosphere. You have to text your way in for a reservation, and enter through the back door.

    Hidden speakeasy bar located behind a restaurant. Make sure you have a reservation! But they also have a few spots for walk ins, just in case.

    Hands down my favorite bar in KC. Ryan, Beau and the gang know how to mix, shake and stir any drink you can think of. Brass in Pocket, Smokin' Choke & the Old Oaxacan are the way to go.

    This place is a proper speakeasy with a very strong and seasonal cocktail list. Talk to the bartender about what you like and you'll get something great.

    The attention to detail here is unparalleled, down to the types of ice cubes they use for each drink. My favorite bar in KC.

    Winter in Buenos Aires is terrific. So unusual and wonderful. Check out the Zombie Apocalypse.

    Must try the Smoke and Choke. Great Mix. Ask what they have off the menu, as their custom drink are awesome. :). .

    Love the place but they pick some bizarre music that doesn't fit the vibe at all. Pretty sure they're playing Goo Goo Dolls right now.

    Be prepared to spend some $, because you're not going to want to stop at one. Ladies try Anyone for Tennis, and the guys should try the Smoke and Choke. And remember, you didn't hear about it from me.

    After waiting 1,5h and seeing the lady at the doorway to let other people in,without a reservation,we decide to walk away. Probably a good bar, but will not last long with a attitude like that.
