Maybee is making a rum for the Power & Light District
One of the city’s premier cocktailians is about to be turned loose on the Power & Light District. The Kansas City Business Journal reports that the Cordish Co. is collaborating with Ryan Maybee (of Manifesto and the Rieger Hotel Grill & Exchange) on a new jazz club called The Kill Devil Club in the former Peachtree Restaurant space above Fran’s in the Power & Light District. The space at the corner of 14th Street and Main has been vacant since December 2010 when the Peachtree closed. Cordish will own and operate the 5,400-square-foot club, while Maybee is busy developing a cocktail menu that revolves heavily around rum.
