Once lights are lit in Kansas City’s Country Club Plaza, there is no better place to go for a cup of good holiday cheer than Bread & Butter Concepts’ sophisticated Gram & Dun. With a bar scene that can go from cozy to raucous depending on the night of the week, Gram & Dun caters to a mature but fun crowd.

Located on one of the most desirable corners of the Plaza, the interior is covered in luxe golds, creams and dark brown. On warmer nights or when the heat lamps are running, head outside to enjoy the fireplaces glittering on the patio.

Behind the bar, in addition to a solid beer and wine list, there is a real dedication to delicious and seasonal cocktails without the pretension that too often comes with them.

Seasonal drinks from Bread & Butter Concepts beverage director Scott Tipton include a creamy new coffee cocktail, Strange Brew, featuring cold-brew coffee with bourbon, green chartreuse, Averna amaro and an airy banana-flavored foam, served over ice with a side of sweetened condensed milk that guests can add to taste – perfect for a post-dinner pick-me-up or enjoyed in place of dessert.

Highly recommended is Gram & Dun’s most popular cocktail, its seasonal Moscow Mule, now featuring Dark Horse Distillery’s vanilla-infused Rider Vodka, pear liqueur, ginger beer and lime. Finally, seasonally rotating cocktails on tap are also being served – right now, get The Tillerman, a take on the classic Pimm’s Cup with Pimm’s No. 1, dry curaçao, ginger tea syrup and lemon.
