TitleOut of Tune
AbstractReview of the Phoenix Piano Bar and Grill, located at 302 W. 8th Street. Includes background information about previous proprietors of the Phoenix Hotel and Restaurant, which opened at the same location in 1888, and at one time was "rumored to be more of a bordello than a traditional hotel."
NotesThe building is on the National Historic Register with original brick walls dating to 1888. "The Phoenix opened in the Garment District in 1990 and later changed ownership before closing in mid-2007. It was named after the original tennant, the Phoenix Hotel. In the beginning, the street-level space was a saloon with the hotel on the upper floors. Jones said the rumor is [that] a bordello operated out of the upper floors at one time. Now condos have taken those floors." - The Kansas City Star, November 7, 2008, C1:3, Citscape column by Joyce Smith.
