Delicious cocktails and good vibes at Drastic Measures

Drastic Measures cocktail lounge has opened up in Shawnee, KS. This new spot is serving up delicious cocktails and good vibes at the corner of Johnson Drive and Neiman Rd.

The mixologists at Drastic Measures have created a bright, upbeat, complex and diverse menu that is made with care to be approachable to all patrons. The menu has a cocktail for everyone and if not, they will create the perfect drink for you.

People often think they are a speakeasy because of the way the entrance is setup. This has actually helped to limit the amount of people that can get in and has been very beneficial during the pandemic.

The building was constructed in 1850 and from the front appears to be a random office. Walk inside though and you’re surrounded by natural stone walls, geometric tables and lighting, live plants and a relaxed atmosphere.

Drastic Measures creates all of their mixers in house so your gin & tonic will be made with a house made lime and lemongrass tonic. They are a spirits only establishment so don’t expect a pinot or a beer.

Currently the bar is cash only but they do have an ATM on site. They do not take reservations and work on a first come, first served basis. You can view the cocktail menu and learn more on the Drastic Measures website.

Amid Covid reopening, Mini-golf concept bar still plans to open at P&L this summer

Sinkers will open at KCP&L this summer

Kansas City based small business Swell Spark is bringing a new concept in entertainment to KCP&L this summer. Sinkers Lounge will have nine mini-golf holes along with tabletop golf which is a mashup of mini-golf and shuffleboard.

You may be familiar with several of Swell Sparks other concepts. They are behind the Breakout KC escape rooms as well as Blade & Timber.

The lounge will be located at 53 W 13th Street next door to Blade & Timber. It’s nice to see that even amidst the pain and distress that was Covid-19, we still have businesses deciding to open up.
