Drum Room Lounge

In 1926, The President was the first hotel to be able to produce its own ice in Kansas City, and moving forward with this “in house” concept, we will be using essential, fresh, regional and homemade ingredients in almost every craft cocktail we produce. These simple precepts will take a bit of work, planning and skill, but will be instrumental in setting us apart in the Kansas City bar scene; in the Power and Light district, and as a destination hangout – not just the convenience of a hotel bar and restaurant. Please note that the kitchen is open until 9:00 pm.
