I wanted to compile a list of my favorite Happy Hours here in Kansas City. I get many questions from you guys, who are either visiting KC or live locally for my favorite spots. Hope you enjoy these places as much as we do.
Monday-Friday: 3PM to 6PM, all day Sunday & half off bottles of wine Wed & Sun
North has been one of our very favorite restaurants for years. We love to go for Happy Hour because all of your favorite items are on the menu. As I am writing this I am referring back to the menu and honestly I love every item on the HH menu. Michael and I love to split the Chefs Board and their famous Zucca Chips. I usually order a glass of Rosé but when I’m at North for Happy Hour I will order the Red Sangria- it’s so good but definitely sweet. The daily pizzas are always amazing. Micheal loves The Pig and I love the Margherita.
As for items that aren’t on the Happy Hour menu (but I still wanted to share), Micheal’s favorite dish is the spicy chicken parmesan which on the menu is just listed as the chicken parm but he likes to make it spicy. I love the Burrata Tortelloni or the Seasonal Vegetable. And be sure to end with their Hazelnut Torta. If we are feeling brave and take the kids with us they love the spaghetti and meatballs and I love stealing a few bits.
All night on Monday, Tuesday-Saturday: 4-6PM, Sunday: 3-6PM
Jax Fish House is on the Plaza which makes for a perfect date night stop. We love stopping by for Happy Hour. It is the best time to try it out because you can’t beat the prices for level of seafood and drinks. I highly recommend the Jax Strawberry Lemonade or the Rosé on Tap. We love the Steamed PEI Mussels, Peel N’ Eat Shrimp, and/or the East Coast Oysters. All so delicious for you seafood lovers.
I am sure you guys have heard of Brookside Barrio. It’s created quite the buzz in KC. It opened this year in Brookside and has been very popular. Michael and I love to go down and sit on the patio. We haven’t got anything we don’t like. To drink I recommend any of the margaritas. My personal favorite is the Skinny Margarita. We love the Loaded Quesa, Quacamole and also the Mini Chimis with the dipping sauce is sooo good!
Blue Sushi Sake Grill is by far our favorite sushi restaurant in town. We like so many items on the menu. To drink we like the Signature Martini. For Happy Hour we love to start with any combo of Edamame, Shishito Peppers, Lettuce Wraps, Brussel Sprouts. Our other favorites are the Beach Roll and the Itchy Salmon.
Monday- Thursday: 4-6:00PM, 4-11PM on the 2nd Floor
If we are wanting to eat downtown, Michael and I love to go to Rockhill. The bar is beautiful and it makes for a great date night and since we don’t venture downtown often, it feels like we are on a little mini getaway. Also ask about the upstairs when you go. When we went the second floor there was a full service bar and HH was extended till 11pm! For drinks I love their Rosé for Happy Hour or the Rockhill Collins is delicious! We are obsessed with the Bruschetta! It is the best and a must if you go! I would also recommend the Calamari and Michael likes the Pig Wings.
Monday- Friday: 4-7:00PM, Saturday & Sunday: 3-6:00PM
Ainsworth is located in Park Place which is one of our favorite areas to take the kids. We can enjoy Happy Hour while the kids run and play on the green area. From the menu our favorites are the Brussel Sprouts, Chicken and/or the Fish Tacos and the Oysters. We also like the sliders, we either do the beef sliders or the slider trio.
