New Power & Light cocktail bar makes national 'what's hot' list

A new bar in the Power & Light District has made Eater’s “heatmap.”

The national restaurant, bar and nightlight blog put the Kill Devil Club as No. 15 on its list of “21 Hottest Cocktail Bars Across the <st1:country-region>U.S.</st1:country-region>: Where to Drink Right Now.”

Eater describes Kill Devil Club as: “A new Kansas City piano bar with live jazz and a nice mix of classic and original cocktails. The food menu, which includes foie and fig empanadas, ensures you’ll have something to soak up the booze.”

The Kill Devil Club is a collaboration between local restaurateur and mixologist Ryan Maybee and ECI, an affiliate of Power & Light District landlord and developer the Cordish Cos. The bar is located in a second-floor spot at the southeast corner of 14th and Main Streets.

Other bars on Eater’s list include a members-only venue in St. Louis called Blood & Sand, and an underground bar in San Francisco called Local Edition.
