Ladies, how long has it been since you last had a girl’s night out? Chances are, it’s been too long! If you’re finding yourself going nuts at the office and bored at home, it’s time to get the girls together and go out for the night, or even the weekend. After all, friends are good for the soul, and so is a little pampering.
Kansas City provides any number of places and things to do to make your girl’s night out memorable (and low budget). Check out some of the most popular destinations here, but feel free to make your own itinerary. After all, different tastes call for different places!
If food is your thing, check out the Sante Fe Café. Located on 87th and Switzer, this little family owned restaurant has a fantastic menu, especially for breakfast. Try the cinnamon rolls – definitely worth the indulgence! A great and exotic lunch place, including an amazing view of the bluffs of the Missouri River, is Piropos Restaurant. For the wine connoisseurs (or wannabe ones), head out to Jowler Creek Winery. They regularly hold workshops as well as tours and wine tasting, including weekend hours.
For those looking to spend some time outdoors, Merriam’s Antioch Park is a great place to start. Enjoy walks around the lake and woods, and catch a scent of the sweet at the Memorial Rose Garden. Or take a stroll through the overland Park Arboretum and Botanical Gardens. Check out the hiking trails here and enjoy lush, natural ecosystems preserved in over 85% of the park.
Don’t forget about getting out and on the town as well! Lill Studio on the Plaza can help you host your own handbag party, where you can ooh and ahh over the custom bags the studio specializes in. Or snack on the artisanal delights that are Christopher Elbow’s Artisanal Chocolates. Even better? You don’t have to share with the kids! Also, don’t forget to designate a driver before hitting up the nightlife at the hotspots. Danny’s Big Easy features R&B and soul, with a Louisiana flair, while Manifesto offers a vintage, speakeasie feel with classic spirits and timeless cocktails.
Whatever you decide to do, Kansas City offers a variety of options to customize your own girl’s night out. Now get out there and have fun!
