Country Club Plaza

Country Club Plaza

The Country Club Plaza is a popular, highly acclaimed, well recognized American premier retail, dining, entertainment and residential destination in Kansas City, MO. The 15-block district is an exceptional blend of more than 150 major fashion houses and local favorites, along with dozens of fine restaurants.

And it is located one short block – across Brush Creek – from InterContinental Kansas City at the Plaza.

Shoppers will recognize fine stores like kate spade new york and Michael Kors. Original Kansas City stores like Baldwin KC and Tivol are local contributions to the Plaza’s reputation as a national fashion center. Pleasant surprises can be found along each block – from quaint boutiques to delicious chocolatiers, couture clothiers, stylish salons and fine jewelry.

The Plaza dining experience ranges from contemporary American to Kansas City steaks, authentic Italian to cosmopolitan burgers. It can be the hot spot that caters to the late crowd or a quiet courtyard café for the more subdued. Plaza restaurants offer an atmosphere that many other districts emulate, but no other district can duplicate.

The Plaza is lively year ‘round with an eclectic calendar of music and special events, including the famous Plaza Lights (Thanksgiving to New Year’s Day) and the widely recognized Plaza Art Fair.

Come experience for yourself its rich history.
