Stockyards District

Our neighborhood is expanding!

Stockyards District

Located in Kansas City’s most accessible location right between Kansas City, Kansas and Kansas City, Missouri.

Originally established in 1871, the Stockyards area quickly expanded from its original 13 acres to 55, adding multiple loading docks on both the Kansas and Missouri Pacific tracks, new sheds for hogs and sheep and developed one of the largest horse and mule markets in the country.

Hy-Vee Arena

A newly renovated multi-use, state-of-the-art recreational youth and adult sporting facility.

Once known as the historic Kemper Arena, the redeveloped Hy-Vee Arena is officially opening on October 5th, 2018. With two levels of basketball courts, an indoor track, office spaces and restaurants, this renovated 45-year-old arena is expected to bring new life to the thriving community of the Kansas City Stockyards District. The building is currently in the midst of a $39 million renovation, which will be finished this fall. The Hy-Vee Arena is already booked solid for the first full year of operation!

A locally owned urban winery producing small lots of handcrafted wines attracting wine enthusiasts, wine tasters and events.

Amigoni Winery is the only winery in the state that exclusively grows Vitis Vinifera grapes. Enjoy their beautiful tasting room in the urban core of Kansas City’s West Bottoms, inside the historic Daily Drover Telegram Newspaper building, built in 1909.

Amigoni has succeeded in bringing their wines to the people of Kansas City, where they can be sampled, shared and purchased easily. Guests can taste wine or local beers, visit the barrel room, or enjoy the patio. The event space is available by reservation.

Genessee Royale

A great place to meet clients for lunch, their seasonal menus are a compliment to the neighborhood and rich history.

Located in a former filling station, the Genessee Royale is named after the street location and the American Royal. However, it’s pronounced Royale in the French manner, an acknowledgment of the French families that once occupied the neighborhood.

The owners have brought new life into the structure to create an inviting and friendly atmosphere. The seasonal menus are a compliment to the neighborhood in which it is located and a nod to the rich history of the West Bottoms.

Stockyards Brewery

Great tasting, locally made beers with modern techniques; located right in the Livestock Exchange Building!

Within the historic space that was once the home of the Golden Ox, Stockyards Brewing Company makes great tasting, locally crafted beers with modern techniques. The Stockyards brews their craft beer behind a 65-year old meat locker. This custom setup enables the front bar to serve fresh quality brews.

The spirit of the Golden Ox lives on in the bar and taproom, while honoring the industrious history of the West Bottoms, reviving the space for the present-day community.
