A huge, beautiful vintage apartment with a craft kitchen/bar, three queen beds, newly remodeled bath and three striking outdoor spaces—a deck and two balconies with amazing views of downtown KC.
Ideally situated in downtown Kansas City between the historic West Side and Crossroads Arts District. Walking distance to the Convention Center, Kauffman, restaurants, music, bars, light rail line and lots more. Book this highly-reviewed loft now!
You'll be staying in a lovingly restored loft that takes up the entire second floor of a historic brick building. Ideal for business trips, family vacations, or friends traveling together. Enormous at over 1600 feet, the space includes a living/dining room, kitchen/bar, gorgeous bedrooms and newly remodeled bath. The open living space and front bedroom feature private walk-out porches near the skyline and the enormous full-size deck off the kitchen/office serves up stunning downtown views. I'm a student of the local craft cocktail scene, and the kitchen reflects that, with a bar-height counter, an array of glassware and all the tools you'll need to create a Manhattan or Mojito if the mood strikes you. Please note that the kitchen is fully functional, but minimal (think hotplates and toaster oven instead of a gas stove)—so if you plan to do a lot of cooking, scan my other listings, each of which have kitchens with full-size appliances. If you'd consider yourself whimsical and want to save a few bucks, ask about the Craft Beer Discount.
You'll have the key code to unit 2, which takes up the entire second floor and is otherwise known as the "Blue Fox." Also, not to be overlooked—the basement laundry room. (If you're staying five nights or more, request a key if needed.)
We may not meet face to face, but I'm typically close by and happy to offer tips and recommendations on the local arts and food scene, especially all things related to indie music, coffee culture, craft cocktails and beer.
You likely already know. But if not: You'll be in the heart of downtown Kansas City, which is enjoying an urban renaissance reflected in painting and music and dance and architecture, and also in local breweries, bistros, cocktails and coffee. It's a fun time to be here and you'll be in the middle of it all. You'll be within walking distance to everything (slight exaggeration, but not a large one). Two blocks from the Kauffman Performing Arts Center. Dozens of galleries, bars and restaurants around the corner. A half mile from Liberty Memorial, Crown Center, Union Station. Under a mile to the Sprint Center, the College Basketball Experience, and the Power and Light District. If you're looking for a home base for your downtown Kansas City adventure, this is it. Check out the Guidebook/Map for some of my favorite local gems. If you're interested, I also have a couple unlisted favorites I like to recommend.
Just So You Know... Depending on the route you take to arrive, your first impression of my neighborhood may not be awesome (a couple guests have mentioned this)—the city has some delayed maintenance to do on a highway ramp and several sidewalks, and there are a couple ugly buildings slated for redevelopment. But have no fear! This area is highly sought after and once you arrive, you'll see why (guests mention this too)—your loft is right in the middle of KC's downtown renaissance. So no worries.
A lot of your destinations will be within walking distance if you're working or playing downtown. Light rail runs downtown, and Bike Share KC rentals are available nearby, as well as a comprehensive bus system. Uber is also popular around here. You'll have free street parking at our location, a quiet residential boulevard just around the corner from all the action.
