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.
