Kansas Citians can literally taste what the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema has to offer this weekend. The theater chain from Austin, Texas, which created a fair amount of local buzz when it announced
that it would be taking over the Mainstreet Theatre (1400 Main) from AMC Entertainment, is preparing to debut its cocktail menu at the Chesterfield, the rebranded bar that was the Marquee under AMC. But as The Kansas City Star discovered
yesterday, there won't be nude waitresses.
The bar, which will offer live music and pulls its name from the Jazz Age days, is naturally focused on classic cocktails (a list of drinks is here). The drinks are $9 and include the Side Car (brandy, orange liqueur, lemon and sugar), French 75 (gin, lemon, sugar, finished with sparkling wine and a lemon twist), and the Ward 8 (bourbon, orange, lemon, and house-made grenadine). The Chesterfield will also serve beer and wine.
