The nearly 12,500-square-foot restaurant and bar, at 1300 Main St., will have an open floor plan featuring a mix of warm woods with stainless steel accents. A glass-enclosed keg room, kept at a constant 34 to 36 degrees, will house as much as 4,000 gallons of beer at one time.
The space, which will seat 318 people, also will have original abstract art by California artist Jerome Gastaldi.
Yard House will feature 130 beers on tap, including 32 selections from Kansas and Missouri breweries like Boulevard Brewing Co., Cinder Block Brewery, and Kansas City Bier Co. The Chalkboard Series will feature five hand-picked draft selections rotating frequently.
Menu items will include grilled burgers, tacos, steaks, seafood, salads and ribs.
