Happy Hour III - 12 Baltimore

12 Baltimore -  KC's Longest Happy Hour


The Hotel Phillips in the heart of downtown truly qualifies as a remarkable location. For one thing, it was put on the National Register of Historic Places in 1979, fifty years after it opened. It has art deco down pat and a gilded elegance you seldom see here.  Just walking into the hotel takes you back to a time we see only in the movies. 

Its restaurant and bar, 12 Baltimore, has a lovely, looonnnggg happy hour – from 3 – 7p.m. weekdays, which means, for many of us, dinner is available at a highly reduced rate – all the apps are half price. Beers are cheap, cheap I say and they have drink specials every night – the best are $3 margaritas on Mondays, 1/2 price signature cocktails on Tuesdays, or $4 wine (Coastal Vines) on Fridays. They also have a $6 blue Royals vodka lemonade drink on days the Royals play, though I haven’t had it yet.

The place has a laid-back vibe and feels cozy – you can come by yourself and not feel weird.  There is music three nights a week, Acoustic Thursdays, Feature Fridays and Live Jazz Saturdays.  Although I haven’t seen her, there’s an artist (and her studio) in residence.  How cool is that?


Lots of Kansas Citians forget this place.  They shouldn’t.
