We’re only 30 miles from the Myers Hotel Bar: Best of KC 2018

This month, we published The Pitch‘s annual Best of Kansas City issue. You can browse the results of the readers’ poll here. The issue also included a list, compiled and written by our editorial staff, of some our current favorite things about Kansas City in 2018. We’ll be publishing these items online throughout October. 

We have a new life dream, and it is to move in to the century-old Victorian roadside hotel in Tonganoxie, Kansas, that now houses the Myers Hotel Bar. Proprietors (and partners) Kate Frick and Stephanie Marchesi have revamped into the place into a bar, coffee shop, and gathering space. (And there’s also a detached one-room Airbnb). The property features loads of great original touches, including built-in cabinetry and a handsome ballroom, which is made comfortable and cool with vintage furniture, board games and a record player. The building’s variety of uses throughout the years (salon, diner, café) have lent it a number of charming quirks as well, including a glacial stone bar, with stones harvested in Tonganoxie and carried to Kansas centuries ago by once-formidable fields of ice. What truly makes the Myers, though, is the hospitality. Frick and Marchesi will serve you a great latte, Americano, or impeccably crafted cocktail made using their garden’s fresh herbs while telling you stories about the hotel or about their adopted hometown. You won’t want to leave.

Myers Hotel Bar. 220 S Main Street, Tonganoxie, Kansas.
