Those in need of festive cocktail or stiff drink should head to Chaz on the Plaza inside Kansas City’s Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star Raphael Hotel. With an extensive list of regional wines, liqueurs, scotch, whiskeys and classic cocktails such as the Manhattan, the Forbes Travel Guide Recommended restaurant and lounge offers a cozy, clubby atmosphere and a cocktail menu to admire. Monday through Friday, the lounge hosts a happy hour from 4 to 6 p.m. featuring half-priced appetizers (popular with visitors and locals alike). You can also check out local musicians playing anything from jazz and classical tunes to the blues and rock 'n' roll nightly.
