Experiencing Bourbon Around Kansas City

Bourbon trails are all the rage right now, and while Kentucky is the place to experience a true bourbon trail, we wanted to showcase the many options we have right here in our own back yard. Kansas City is home to many fine establishments that offer top of the line bourbon and unique and exquisite variety. Here is our quick list of top places to enjoy a great bourbon around town.

The Monarch Bar



Applewood-smoked J. Rieger & Co. Whiskey, Yunnan Black Tea-infused Lustau Vermut Rojo, barrel-aged cream soda reduction, No. 22 Boondock Bitters

This drink is created with a sugar lid fully encasing smoke inside the glass and cracked upon serving. As you might expect, this drink has a wonderful smoky rich flavor. This is an excellent choice for those that prefer the traditional Old-Fashioned but are looking to change it up.



You Can’t Rollerskate in a Buffalo Herd


+ Buffalo Trace 

+ Rhubarb Liquere

+ Luxardo Bitter Bianco 

+ Mole Bitters

The Rhubarb introduces an extremely subtle hint of gentle sweetness and unique flavor that is nearly undetectable but helps to create a trendy twist to the standard and expected bourbon cocktail. 



“Blistered Aroma”

+ Russell’s 10 year Bourbon

+ Russell’s 6 year Rye Whiskey

+ Amaro Nonino

+ Orange Bitters

+ Aromatic Bitters

+ Housemade Rosemary, Blood Orange, and Naval Orange Simple Syrup

+ Torched Sprig of Rosemary

+ Dehydrated Blood Orange Wheel

The addition of rosemary along with 
hints of orange sets this apart.

P.S. is Hotel Phillips’ contemporary incarnation of the 1930’s speakeasy.
