Restaurants in Kansas City

Upcoming Events

Culinarily compelling events happen often on the Kansas City cuisine scene and at the area’s many diverse restaurants. American Slang Modern Brasserie included.

Diners and bar-goers, of course, can expect the restaurant to be ‘open’ daily. After all, American Slang is easily accessible on the lobby level of the InterContinental Kansas City at the Plaza.

What matters, too, is what happens at the bar/eatery when it comes time for special events or holiday dining – whether its Valentine’s Day or Easter. Mother’s Day or Thanksgiving. Christmas or New Year’s Eve.

Here’s what’s offered next.

Summer Specials

Each week during the summer, come in and enjoy Slang specials. One way or the other, we can quench your thirst!

On Mondays, sip on the Rat Pack Special: $8 Martinis all night long AND savor a complimentary appetizer buffet from 11 PM – Midnight.

Tuesdays are all about $8 Wine Taps.

And on Wednesday, we’re serving up $5 All Beer Taps.
