After a year spent franticly assembling palindromes, your mind and body deserve a break. Today's Groupon feeds both with $20 worth of meals, drinks, and augmented fifths at The Phoenix Jazz Club for $10. Everyone at your table can use one Groupon, and you can even use yours during happy hour or for lunch and dinner specials.
Like a Steinway piano with a refrigerator installed in its body, the Phoenix Jazz Club accompanies its menu of small plates, sandwiches, and wraps with live jazz six nights a week. Amid the swirling atmosphere of colorful horn solos and drum brushes, improvise a hot set of your own with an opener of buttermilk popcorn shrimp ($8). Complement it with a back-up band of crab cakes with Cajun aioli ($8)—named after jazz sousaphone great, Crabby "Crab Cake" Caker—or the Cobb salad with egg, chicken, avocado, and kind of blue cheese ($8). And for those who prefer their meals encompassed by bread in some fashion, there's the patty melt (half-pound of beef under swiss and onion on rye, $7), Kansas City's famous Phoenix Philly (with onions and peppers on a sourdough hoagie, $9), and the reuben on rye (corned beef, swiss cheese, and sauerkraut, $8).
The Phoenix Jazz Club's calendar is packed with talented musical outfits playing the kind of jazz that made Kansas City famous. With today's Groupon, you and your entire estranged funk band can get your music fix, your food fix, and—if the evening goes really well—your carburetor fixed.
Stemming from its building's late 19th-century origins in downtown Kansas City's bustling Garment District, The Phoenix now celebrates over 20 years as a showcase for top local music acts. Billed by The Pitch as a top music venue, these artists energize the musical palette of the historic club with soulful sounds of blues, funk, bluegrass, jazz, and folk.
While absorbing the local sounds of Kansas City, it's only appropriate that guests can take advantage of several local food offerings from The Phoenix's new menu as well. Kicking off with appetizers such as Avocado Fries and Mac Bites, diners can round out their meals with entree favorites such as Steak Diane, Firehouse Chicken, and Downtown Dip. For earlier risers, patrons can indulge in the club's Jazz Brunch, held every Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
