Harry’s Country Club
Located in the River Market, thepatio at Harry’s Country Club is the ideal spot to unwind afterwork. Grab a group of your co-workers, post up at a picnic tableand order a round of Moscow Mules.
The patio of SoT -- itstands for South of Truman -- is tucked away on Grand Boulevard.There you’ll enjoy the bar’s elevated cocktail menu, which includesthe Ghostface Painkillah, made with rum and pineapple, and theSmoky Cocktail, served full of smoke from charred banana leaves.

Brown & Loe
If you’re a fan of Harry’sCountry Club, you’ll enjoy the owner’s second concept located inthe former Merchant’s Bank, built in 1920. Request a table at theoutdoor patio for a great view of the district with quality foodand drink to match. We love the el-Loe-co cocktail.
Come for the Napoleon-style pizza, stay for the drink specials.This family-owned River Market spot opened in 2015 and has been afavorite of local diners and drinkers ever since. The outdoordining area is both spacious and quaint, with enough room to sharea table with your closest friends. If you bring your Passportalong, you’ll receive a two-for-one special on Vermouths of theMoment, Amaros of the Moment, or Negronis on tap.
In themood for a martini? In Kansas City, that means Café Trio. We lovethis Plaza-area bar’s Liquid Cocaine, made with Stoli, SouthernComfort, amaretto, triple sec and pineapple juice. The sexy patiohas its own bar so your next drink is never far and there is enoughshade to keep you cool on the hottest summer day. The view of oneof Kansas City’s crown jewels doesn’t hurt.
