If you prefer to recreate your favorite cocktails at home, make sure your bar (and refrigerator) is stocked with everything you need. Beer lovers, make a beeline for Bier Station, where you can pick from an astounding selection of bottled beverages to drink in-shop or take home. Boulevard Brewing Co.’s gift shop is a great source for glassware and bar décor like tin signs, coasters and more. Cellar Rat, located in the Crossroads Art District, may not be the biggest wine shop in Kansas City, but don’t let that fool you. A diverse wine selection is accompanied by a carefully curated liquor inventory that’s perfect for the discerning drinker. In the Crestwood Shops, Underdog Wine Co. might be small in size, but there’s plenty to see. The bottles, which are organized like a wine list, have all been handpicked by the owner, which means you’re getting the best of the best. Don’t miss the hard liquor and artisanal chocolate bars.
How’s that for a shopping guide? And to think we’ve only scratched the surface of Kansas City’s retail scene. Happy buying!
