    "When I used to read fairy tales, I fancied that kind of thing never happened, and now here I am in the middle of one!” —Alice

    Kansas City's newest underground 'wonderland' opened to the public this year with an ambiance like no other in town; step into The Fall, and immediately "go down the rabbit hole" to a dark and intimate, whimsical and wild lounge accented with rich velvet chairs, vivid rotating images, and properly themed and adorned cocktails!

    “Would you tell me, please, which way I ought to go from here?” —Alice

    Perfectly situated in KC’s Westport corridor, and located beneath sister-bar, Westport Ale House, @thefallkc becomes "curiouser and curiouser" as you navigate your way to the amber-lit bar and foliage-filled walls after entering through its speakeasy-esque entrance. One won’t want to miss their Insta photo-worthy option with either the bold, blue butterfly wings or the spiral mural prepping you for the fall. Descend down the stairs through the dark green stairwell, and look up, up and around to enjoy the actual life-size grandfather clock suspended amongst with dimly lit sconces and thematic, vintage timepieces.   

    “I suppose I ought to eat or drink something or other; but the great question is ‘What?’” —Alice

    I recommend The Queen of Hearts, of course! While there is no shortage of themed bars around town, The Fall is the first of its kind, tapping into both one’s more refined, mature senses, all while captivating the inner child within who grew up living vicariously through Alice’s Wonderland fantasyland adventures. With four VIP rooms to reserve offering bottle service, step into The Mad Hatter, Alice’s Room, or one of two Queen’s Rooms (Red vs. White) for an intimate arrangement with your squad in luxurious tow. 

    “I do wish I hadn’t drunk quite so much!” —The Rabbit

    The Fall is a family member of KC-based Trident Investment Group; be sure to visit sister restaurant, Parkway: Social Kitchen on the Country Club Plaza, as well as upstairs neighbor, Westport Ale House. Each offers its own distinct, amazing experience in the heart of two of Kansas City’s best entertainment districts.
