the bar

Whatever suits your fancy, the bar at Parker has something for everyone. Curiously crafted cocktails, locally sourced taps, and a delightful curation of bar bites set amidst Parker’s rooftop setting make for an inviting atmosphere from day to night. Live music elevates the evening experience with an option to enjoy your occasion al fresco at our large poolside terrace, and for those looking to partake in an after work cocktail or pre-dinner nosh, Parker is delighted to offer one of the best happy hours on the Plaza from 4pm to 6pm, Sunday through Friday.


Join us at Parker and indulge in progressive American cuisine, with a unique twist on comfort classics. Our seasonally-driven menu features signature dishes such as our 5-Spice Short Ribs, Bacon Onion Tart, Beef Tartar & Brioche, Cedar & Rosemary Salmon and Parker’s Brick Chicken.

While you're here, don't forget to pair your meal with one of our curiously handcrafted cocktails; a mix of new and classic recipes served with a twist. Sip the Brown Butter, with brown butter-washed Four Roses bourbon, demerara sugar and aromatic bitters, or the Local 627, featuring J. Rieger Whiskey, Big O ginger liqueur and Cinder Block cider, sourced locally in the Kansas City and St. Louis region.




The Fontaine’s restaurant, Parker, is an extension of the hotel itself. Featuring a refreshingly modern design that delights and pays tribute to the City of Fountains, the space becomes more than just a place for dining entertainment. 

The new bar lounge uses various types of seating, such as intimate bar height pub tables and long communal tables for groups, to create an atmosphere that encourages guests to gather, linger, and indulge – much like the atmosphere one experiences while exploring Kansas City’s Country Club Plaza. Inspired by the plaza at night, the color palette is a fresh mix of cool grays and deep blues that are reminiscent of fountain lights, while unexpected pops of olive green and copper reference the more urban elements of Kansas City’s architecture. 

Hints of antique mirror in the back bar bring a rippled, reflective quality to the design, giving a subtle nod to the properties of water. Paired with plush furnishings and warm wood tones, Parker further embraces its authentic and unique character, creating a sophisticated and moody setting that resonates with tourists and Kansas City locals alike.
