We are thrilled to welcome you back to travel! As you prepare to hit the road for your next adventure, you’ll find the world a little different from what you remember, but don’t worry, we’ve put together a list of our favorite local spots to help ease all of your planning woes. Here’s our guide to the Kansas City community for your upcoming visit…
First, here’s what to do right here…
You don’t have to go far to explore, indulge and recharge when you stay at 21c Kansas City. As you walk through our doors, you’re immediately immersed in our current exhibition “Labor & Materials” and site-specific installations. You’ll even stumble upon exhibitions in our restaurant and on every guest floor (“Elevate at 21c“).
Start your day with Mildred’s only two blocks from the hotel that has “The Best Breakfast Sandwich in the City”. Have a sweet tooth in the morning? Try a pastry from Banksia or go a healthy route with avocado toast and juice from Ruby Jean’s Juicery.
Now it is time to explore Kansas City! From shopping at Country Club Plaza to hanging out in the Power & Light District there is always some fun happening around town. Looking for an outdoor adventure? About 25 minutes outside of downtown is Shawnee Mission Park– there are boat rentals and a beach, mountain bike trails, disc golf, a dog park, and more! If you are wanting to stay closer to downtown, Berkley Riverfront Heritage Trail has both pedestrian and bike lanes.
Worked up an appetite? It wouldn’t be a weekend in Kansas City without having BBQ- we suggest Gates BBQ, Jones BBQ, or Joes. If you are ready to treat yourself, Bristol Seafood and Steak is less than a mile from the hotel. Also, just one block from the hotel is The Phoenix a historic jazz bar/ speakeasy. Head over to Yardhouse and find the largest selection of draft beer and elevated bar food. Grab a few snacks and taste local beers at Boulevard Brewery. Beer, not your thing? Amigoni Urban Winery may be more of your style with $8 tastings.
