Country Club Plaza

Country Club Plaza

The 15-block district known as the Country Club Plaza is a popular, highly acclaimed, well recognized American premier retail, dining, entertainment and residential destination in Kansas City, MO. It is located one short block – across Brush Creek – from InterContinental Kansas City at the Plaza.

Here shoppers enjoy a wide variety of options including a blend of both locally-owned businesses and branded specialty stores for women, men and children. Pleasant surprises can be found along each block – from quaint boutiques featuring jewelry, handbags and luggage to establishments highlighting practical and not-so-practical necessities such as home decor, optical/eyeware as well as beauty and personal care items and services.

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.
