Art galleries, retailers and other participating art venues located in the Crossroads Art District showcase art from 7-9pm. With ample parking and an abundance of indoor and outdoor entertainment, there's no better way to spend a night than enjoying drinks or dining at an area restaurant, followed by a stroll through the galleries and shops of KC's heart of cultural activity.

In keeping with the eclecticism of the neighborhood, the Crossroads District is home to a variety of restaurants, bars and eateries including; fine dining, Italian, Mexican, Barbecue, Thai, Cajun, Seafood, Steaks, Burgers and more!
