North of the River
Why you’re here: This Liberty newcomer gets its name from the Spanish word for “to sip, gulp or drink,” and we promise you’ll be doing that, plus a whole lot more. Trago features a full-service communal bar and a spacious lounge area that serves up Spanish wines, sangria, cocktails and local beers. Best part is it’s open late. Couple that with tapas inspired by Hispanic dishes made by owner Kandi Kern’s grandmother, and you’ve got a recipe for an incredible night out.
What you’re having: A selection from the wine board, sangria or a tequila tasting

Trezo Maré Restaurant and Lounge
Why you’re here: Kansas Citians are already familiar with Trezo Maré’s magical patio and hand-selected wine list, but it’s worth getting acquainted with its lounge. Italian-influenced like the cuisine, Trezo’s lounge features Tuscan sun-drenched decor and a fully stocked bar. Seasonal cocktails and small bites are best savored by the fireplace with good company.
What you’re having: A “Mule” Berry or any other seasonal creation

Why you’re here: That “king of the world” feel of catching the stunning view of downtown Kansas City from the patio and dining room. Located just a stone’s throw from Trezo Maré, you’ll find Piropos and the taste of Argentina. And it’s not just limited to the cuisine: The eatery’s wine list consists of mostly reds, whites and sparkling Argentinian wines with an exclusive selection of global varietals.
What you’re having: A glass of Malbec from Argentina
