The holidays are a time of indulgence. We adorn our homes with festive lights and deck the halls with garland, holiday kitsch and red and green galore. We also attend gatherings where the focus is food and drink—and presents, too! If going out sounds better than toiling away in the kitchen—not to mention all the post-party dishwashing—these bars and restaurants will gladly host your holiday festivities.
Steak, seafood, pasta, brunch—Kansas City's restaurant scene delivers when it comes to holiday menus. Lidia's and Jax Fish House serve elaborate coursed meals of seafood, and Sullivan's Steakhouse and Chaz on the Plaza feature more classic holiday fare.
A holiday toast is always in order, and what better way to show your out-of-town guests around than by visiting bars with cheery cocktail menus? Knock back a few before dinner to help make spirits bright.
If you're looking for a more over-the-top experience, Kansas City's holiday pop-up bars deliver. Each destination has its own vibe—with plenty of festive decor and cocktails to match.
