#2 Tom's Town Distilling Co

Tom's Town is the perfect place to forget about the rest of the world, while enjoying some whiskey on the rocks. Tom's Town is much more than your regular distillery. This place offers a tour that tells the whole story of Kansas City during the Prohibition Era. They are not only good on the educational side, but their cocktails are just exquisite. Our recommendation: try their gin, vodka and whiskey drinks. They are well known for producing the best of the best.

#1 Green Lady Lounge

The place you were looking for... Green Lady Lounge! As soon as you get into this lounge, it will take you back in time. Their retro vibe combined with the best jazz musicians, will just make this place your favorite spot to have a few drinks and hang out with your friends. We are not sure what do we love most about this lounge. It is either their red velvet walls, the amazing jazz bands, or their delicious cocktails, such as their Bloody Mary. We just know the GLL has our heart.
