chaz's mini-makeover

Chaz has a fresh look and feel designed to enhance the dining experience. The most visual impact of a November makeover was replacing white-cloth tables with black granite table-tops and Queen Anne chairs with sleek, espresso-stained wanut with fire engine red textured upholstery. The chairs are crafted with spring-set construction to provide greater comfort as well as to present a more transistional look. Subtler changes include black linens, new stemware and sound system enhancements.

A kansas city Feast for the senses

Chaz is noted as one of Kansas City's most romantic dining restaurants. As a local magazine noted, "The restaurant has always been romantic. Now it's sexy too." The interior design of polished granite, natural walnut finishes, and soft colors is energized with bold  splashes of red.  Eyes are drawn to an floor-to-ceiling mural that incorporates a photographic montage of Plaza landmarks and translucent acrylic panels enhanced by graphic images. The aromas and music are enhanced by the pleasing decor with antique bronzed mirrors and granite surfaces along the bar and windows, which offer intriguing views of the Plaza's enchanting streetscape.
Chaz on the Plaza Lounge

Chaz Lounge

The Lounge is a vibrant atmosphere for gathering over drinks and appetizers. Chaz mixologists serve up single malts, classic cocktails and specialty drinks created in homage to famous local personalities and places. A favorite is the Hazy Hayden, inspired by KC's international renown for barbecue and smoked meats. The well-balanced cocktail blends Basil Hayden Bourbon, sassafras liquor and house made cinnamon simple sugar in a smoke infused glass. It creates a dramatic presentation and gives the drink a natural smoky flavor. A Chaz mixologist created the apparatus for infusing the smoke. Wine lovers may explore old and new world wines from Chaz's Wine Spectator Award-winning list or the Coravin Wine List featuring more exotic and expensive wines. Hear talented local musicians perform an array of musical genres, including classical, jazz, blues, and pop, nightly (click for entertainment calendar). Stop by for Happy Hour Monday through Friday, 4 to 6 pm, featuring drink specials and half-price appetizers.
