Small venue but cozy. Fun place to go and listen to live music. Wide variety of songs played. People were very friendly both wait staff and patrons. Definitely worth going.

We lucked out!! Wandering around DT and found the Phoenix. The music was fabulous, the "regular" singer reminded me a lot of Della Reeves. Our martinis were perfect and the sandwiches were great. Met some very friendly and helpful people (we were abode hunting). Hear its one of the best jazz clubs in town.

Working in downtown and having never been here, going on co-workers recommendations. This place is smaller, but also has outdoor seating. Great old historic building. Kitchen is downstairs so the stairs see lots of use. Good bar. Didn't get a chance to hang out, but will be going back.

Three of us visited the Phoenix more for the convenience of a meal than for the Jazz. However, their history is interesting as they were once on the edge of the Kansas City Garment District. Gather the Phoenix may have been a bordello style hotel with a speak easy bar on the first floor. So perhaps you want to visit,... More

We have been to the Phoenix many times and we always have a great evening. We love the atmosphere and the setting. The staff is great and is always checking on what we might need. We love all the food items we have selected. The 1/2 price apps(happy hour) is such a wonderful bargain. The Reuben is outstanding and their... More

Love the atmosphere at the Phoenix in KC. Relaxed, the bartenders hook you up with good drinks & friendly service! You have to try the fried risotto, it's SO good & I love the avocado fries too.

We were in search of some live Kansas City jazz and Phoenix was recommended by a few locals. The music was pretty good (a piano player who was later joined by two guitarists) and the drinks were tasty. We went on a Thursday night with a coupon to waive the cover charge but the place was so empty, they weren't... More

We ordered our food after flagging... More

This spot has been around KC for years; it's more of a live music venue which happens to have great cocktails and food. It can get busy sometimes, especially on the weekends. They don't claim to be a fine dining restaurant, but for a live music venue, it's pretty darn good. I recommend the Firehouse Chicken and to drink the... More
