Surprise your loved one with a night out on the town! We don’t mind if you steal our ideas.
Let your palette travel the world without even leaving your seat. When you’re sick of the same old same old, Avenues offers tastes of Europe right here in Brookside. We’re happy to host you for an evening of bistro plates and beverages or settle in a little longer by choosing one of our selected entrees. Our menu changes frequently, so with each stop at Avenues you know you’re getting something unique. The lobster ravioli is a fan favorite, and meat-lovers can’t stop raving about our filet burgers.
The experience doesn’t just stop at food. Avenues is known for our impeccable wine selection. Don’t consider yourself a wine expert? No worries. Let our servers give you a lesson and help you pick something that’s perfect for your meal and your taste buds.
Finish the night off with the perfect dessert by choosing one of Avenues Classics. A partnership with RumChata led to the creation of these delectable bites. The RumChata cheesecake is the move for patrons who can’t get enough of white chocolate, while our Chocolate Gateau is for the chocolate-lovers who just can’t get enough. Somewhere in between? Try the RumChata mousse cake. Three layers of rich chocolate, topped with white chocolate mousse and shavings.
From dinner to dessert, Avenues can be the perfect start to your Brookside date night. If you’re looking for a way to spend quality time together without blowing your budget, book a Tastable. Tastables are reservations with built-in discounts for your table. Treat yourself to a date night without spending your grocery budget for the month.
After you’ve filled your stomachs, take a stop at the Leopold Art Gallery. These nationally ranked pieces can be found anywhere from H&R Block to Arrowhead stadium. If you’re a Royals fan, they have you covered with their incredible pieces on Kansas City’s home team. The gallery is two floors, so take your time exploring these local creations. Their intent is to help build regional culture, so this gallery will definitely give you a taste of Kansas City.
Brookside is full of niche shops and markets to explore with your date. Stop in at 5B&Co for locally made candles whose names will make you smile and scents will make the perfect gift. For nature lovers, The Fiddly Fig offers an eclectic blend of house decor and gorgeous flower arrangements to brighten any day or date! A Store Named STUFF will bring adventure to your date night with beautiful handmade pieces from handbags to rugs and jewelry. World’s Window is the perfect end to your night with accessories, clothing, and art from Kansas City and around the world. After a taste of Europe at Avenues, finish off your world adventure by exploring the shops that surround Kansas City and give you a taste of culture.
Kansas City has a rich history of music, specifically jazz. Close to Brookside you can find The Green Lady Lounge or the Blue Room to finish off your night surrounded by romance and good music. Grab a drink and take a listen to hear the heart of Kansas City. If Jazz isn’t your thing, check calendars for the Midland Theater and the Riot Room and buy tickets for your favorite performer.
