Championed by owner/founder Chris Goode, Ruby Jean’s is a local juicery and eatery that offers fresh, health-conscious dining and dieting options to Kansas Citians—and an inspiring story driven by community involvement and investment. 

Explore some of his Kansas City favorites:

wild  way

Kansas City’s very own coffee camper is more than a fun novelty—the coffee is excellent, and the positivity is very real. During winter months, find them in a semi-permanent space in the Crossroads Arts District. When it’s warmer out, track down the Wild Way posted around the metro, including their popular spot right next to Martini Corner.

The campground

Found in the blossoming West Bottoms district, The Campground pairs unparalleled spirits with stylish digs in one of the city’s hottest cocktail concepts. Post up post-work or pre-dinner to enjoy a lively menu featuring house-made drinks, wine and beer, plus brunch, lunch and dinner. 

Those in need of fresh haircuts need look no further than 180V Barber Salon, a community mainstay calling the 18th & Vine Historic Jazz District home.
