Parkway’s signature cocktails will feel familiar, and they’re always delicious. Any of these drinks are a great way to end a happy hour on the Kansas City Plaza.
- Fig Old Fashioned: The Old Fashioned is arguably the cornerstone of all cocktails. Most bar enthusiasts trace its roots back over 200 years. It’s reliable, and it has stood the test of time. Parkway’s Fig Old Fashioned is a slight twist on the classic recipe — not so different that you won’t recognize it, but unique enough to give you a new experience. This Fig Old Fashioned is built on Parkway’s house-infused fig and vanilla bean whiskey, perfectly mixed with maple simple syrup and bitters. Sip it slow and savor it — you’ll want more when it’s gone.
- The King of Swing: This is a house favorite among bartenders and Plaza happy hour goers alike. The King of Swing is a local beverage that builds its house on Kansas City’s own Mean Mule Pure Agave Spirit. Combined with St. Germaine elderflower liqueur, Aperol, fresh grapefruit juice and a splash of lime, the King of Swing brings a bright citrus flavor that rests right in between sweet and mellow. If you’re feeling something fruity, this is your drink.
- Parkway Sangria: Sangria is a traditional drink with a thousand variations. A quick search will yield websites listing the six, or 10, or 50 best ways to make sangria. But, why worry about making sangria at all when the bartenders at Parkway can do it for you? For a fruity and refreshing addition to your happy hour on the Plaza in Kansas City, order Parkway’s sangria, with your choice of red or white wine.

Hopefully, happy hour has you feeling good. That is the whole point, after all. Why not stay for dinner?
