Cash/credit bar.

Please let us know if you plan to attend on Facebook!

For generations, Kansas City has been home to a thriving landscape of neighborhood bars, restaurants and cafes that play an essential role in our sense of place and community. “Legacy Bars and Restaurants” is an educational and community building initiative that invites users to experience the history of some of Kansas City’s most legendary eateries, watering holes, dives, and haunts to celebrate the iconic establishments that contribute to the culture and character of Kansas City. Losses of local institutions like the Golden Ox and Italian Gardens underscore the need to develop new strategies for supporting and protecting places with intangible cultural significance.

The businesses featured have achieved longevity of 35 years or more, possess distinctive architecture or interior design, and/or contribute to a sense of history in the surrounding neighborhood. If you are interested in sponsoring or supporting the “Legacy” project, please email acrawley@historickansascity.org. Know of a business that should be included? Send us an email!
