A Kansas City landmark on the corner of the old Garment District in downtown, The Phoenix is downtown’s best jazz joint. I’ve had very good Old Fashioneds and Side Cars here, they do the best Guinness pour in town, and they always have a good selection of local favorite Boulevard beers on tap. But you come to The Phoenix for the music. The band is right by the door surrounded by seats for couples and groups, or enjoy the porch out that looks back at The River Market. To experience what Kansas City is all about, come to The Phoenix’s Friday Happy Hour from 4:30-8:30pm to hear Lonnie McFadden play the blues.
