With the recent arrival of national chain establishments to downtown Kansas City, newly opened Czar Bar provides a locally owned alternative for visitors to the urban area. Get a true taste of Kansas City nightlife and culture in the old-school lounge environment of KC's newest venue - booking the best in local and national acts, serving a superb selection of boutique and small batch liquors, and featuring a diverse menu made from scratch.

Czar Bar not only represents the future of downtown Kansas City, but gives a nod to the history of the district as well. The location has served the city in a variety of capacities since it was erected in 1888. Curiously enough, it began life in a similar manner - as a saloon owned by Kansas City icon William Muehlebach. The historic building also served as the Colonial State Bank, was a previous location of local landmark Italian Gardens, and in more recent years as the home of Late Night Theater.

Owned and operated by long-time area residents, and service industry veterans, Czar Bar provides a top-notch drinking, dining, and entertainment experience to an ideal populace of locals and visitors to the resurrected downtown district.
