A Taste of Fall with SoT, Kansas City's Go-To Cocktail Bar

Kansas City doesn't get more hip than SoT. 

This hidden gem is located in the Kansas City Crossroads Arts District. Its low profile exterior, boasting a single gold key projecting from a patch of ivy, is the bat call that first lured me in. Upon entering SoT your eyes may wander to its tufted blue-leather banquettes, expansive library nook or monitors featuring classic anime as well as black & white television series from the not too distant past.

Known for it's signature, elevated cocktails, this inventive bar also serves up an impressive line up of delicious small plates. With the recent debut of its fall menu, what better time than now would it be to stop in for nibbles and sips?

When I dip, you dip, we dip.

Brûléed Goat Cheese

If it has the word brûlée in it, 10 times out of 10 I will order it. SoT's Brûléed Goat Cheese is topped with honey and as you sink your bread into this warm, molten decadence you'll find a few surprises: marinated cherries.

Charcuterie Board, SoT Kansas City

Charcuterie

SoT's charcuterie board is one of the best in Kansas City. Featuring an array of meats, cheeses, mustard and pickled goodies, it is sure to please.

Pão De Queijo

If you aren't familiar with Pão De Queijo just try to envision biting into an airy cheese bread (or stop in to SoT to try it). Small dollops of roasted garlic pureé and romesco sauce are served alongside these babies to add an extra kick of flavor to your bites.

Cauliflower Bowl, SoT Kansas City

Cauliflower

Ain't no party like a cauliflower party because a cauliflower party don't stop!

This cauliflower bowl is a party in your mouth. Warm, smokey flavors from a charred chili aioli and chunks of salty pancetta flavor pieces of brussel sprouts and cauliflower. The party doesn't stop there. It is taken to the next level with a dusting of dukkah, an addictive Egyptian spice mixture.

Just look at it!

I couldn't get over how delicious and beautiful this dish was.

Mahi Mahi Ceviche

End your nibbling on a light note with SoT's Mahi Mahi Ceviche. This ceviche is mild but packs flavor from a mixture of jicama, green apple, jalapeño and red onion. Topped with colorful and curvy vegetable chips, it's a dish that was meant to be posted on the 'gram.
