The restaurant, at 1611 Genessee, is scheduled to be open 24/7 selling burgers, fries and breakfast items.
The former glass shop that previously occupied the first floor space made a $10,000 glass half-circle bar top for the new restaurant and the Smiths will keep the original tin ceilings.
They live in the West Bottoms and operate their other businesses there Voss Marketing, an internet marketing company; Voss Prints, a custom screen printing company; and Pole Worx, a fitness and events studio. Brian Smith also is co-owner of Kansas City Party Bus.
Im up late because of my internet business and used to go to Town Topic a ton, now at least once a week, he said. The West Bottoms needs some kind of late night eatery.
