The Drum Room Restaurant, located in the historic Hilton President Kansas City, is open nightly for dinner and drinks, and daily for lunch. The hotel is in downtown Kansas City, Missouri and is the only hotel in the Power & Light Entertainment District. It is just a short walk to the Sprint Center, within walking distance of the Kansas City Convention Center and ideally located across the street from the new H&R Block World Headquarters.

This upscale cosmopolitan restaurant & lounge has a fun, laid back atmosphere, and features a broad dinner menu which includes fresh seafood and steaks, served from 4 p.m. to 10 p.m. The lunch menu is designed to be fun and served fast! It is served from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

The lounge is known for its 9 oz martinis with such fanciful names as First Lady, U.S. Mint and Preztini.

The Drum Room opened in 1941 and celebrities such as Frank Sinatra, Benny Goodman, Sammy Davis Jr., Tommy Dorsey, Glenn Miller, The Marx Brothers and Pasty Cline all performed in this historic venue. Guests can still sit in the "Rat Pack" booth, as well as enjoy live entertainment Friday and Saturday from 9:00 p.m. - 1:00 a.m. There is no cover charge.

Once again the Drum Room is the best place to meet your friends for drinks or dinner. We also host a Happy Hour daily from 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.
