District. Pour House + Kitchen
Why you’re here: Nestled in a charming, neat row of storefronts in Waldo lies something you never knew you needed: District’s infused liquors. Poisons available for the picking are vodka, gin, rum, tequila and bourbon, and the infusible flavors vary by season and range from the subtle (pineapple and grapefruit) to adventurous (cardamom and pepperoncini). And if you’re looking for the standard pours, this rustic industrial American-fared bar offers those, too.
What you’re having: A flight of seasonal infused liquor.

The Well Bar Grill and Rooftop
Why you’re here: At the center of Waldo’s nightlife is favorite neighborhood bar and grill, aptly named for its bevy of drinks, late-night bites and live music that never seems to run dry. Its main attraction is the rooftop patio, which oversees the streets below and offers resort-like seating, fire pits and torches that appeal to Waldo’s mixed crowd of all ages.
What you’re having: A roaring Tiger, Duck, Bull!
7421 Broadway Blvd., Kansas City, Mo., (816) 361-1700, waldowell.com
Why you’re here: Bier Station is the Midwest’s first craft beer tasting bar/bottle shop. It’s the best of both worlds, blending a casual hangout with your neighborhood convenience store, but with extra perks like a double-decker patio, proper glassware and upgraded bar bites. Check out the digital display of 28 rotating taps or browse the coolers for a bottle or can of your choice. If a quiet night in is more your style, curate a custom six pack of local and international brews from the cooler dand take it home to enjoy.
What you’re having: A pick from the “just tapped” list
