About O’Dowd’s Gastrobar

We first opened our hand-carved double-doors on the Country Club Plaza over 20 years ago. We kept those beautiful doors, but have given the old pub new life. We are modern and chic. We are inviting and entertaining. We are chef-driven and food-focused. Our bartenders don’t just pour drinks, they meticulously craft them. Welcome to the new O’Dowd’s Gastrobar.


Kansas City has been good to O’Dowd’s, and we love Kansas City. That’s why we believe it is important to use local companies and locally-sourced ingredients in our dishes and drinks. We use items from Farm to Market Bread Co., Kurlbaum’s Heirloom Tomatoes, and Green Dirt Farms to name a few. We have a vast selection of locally brewed beers and distilled spirits. Even our drink books were handcrafted by KC’s own Sandlot Goods!
