Happy Hour Review: Harry's Country Club

  Located on Missouri Avenue just South of the City Market area, Harry's Country Club reminds me of a 1940's style honky-tonk bar. The low light, wooden tables and chairs, retro bar stools, and jukebox all add to this persona. During Happy Hour the crowd noise can swell to the point that you find yourself almost shouting to your table mates.

  Sitting in the front window area of Harry's, you find yourself looking out at the Kansas City skyline. The view is obstructed at times by the constant flow of traffic searching for a parking spot, which are limited nearby the bar/restaurant. The windows do bring in some extra light, so that is an added benefit. 

  Happy Hour brings in groups from all around the Market area, as well as from downtown offices. The specials run from 3:00 to 7:00 pm on Monday through Friday, and from 11:00 am to 7:00 pm on Saturdays. The majority of the Happy Hour offerings are in the drink category, but they do run a few specials on appetizers. We found the food to be passable, but nothing special. The drinks are where they excel. They offer a handful of $5.00 cocktails that each have a unique combination of flavors. The Pom Collins is delicious, and on our next visit I plan to give the Rumchata Root Beer Float a try. harry's Country Club makes a great stop after some heavy duty Farmer's Market shopping on a Saturday afternoon, and the weather is getting just right for that activity.
