Welcome to the Kansas City Concrete Company…definitely NOT a speakeasy. On the 2nd floor of Tom’s Town Distilling, we serve elevated cocktails & live jazz music to a thirsty and decadent clientele. But only those who have an “appointment” with Mr. Pendergast of course.
We make award-winning premium spirits. You can taste our high standards and attention to detail in every sip of the gin, vodka, and bourbon we make on Main Street in downtown Kansas City.
Under Pendergast’s influence, Kansas City flouted Prohibition. Tom’s irreverence for federal statutes in favor of bare-knuckled local business dealings allowed his town to emerge as the “Paris of the Plains.” Money, jazz, and spirits flowed right out in the open. When a newspaperman asked Pendergast how he justified ignoring Prohibition he said, “The people are thirsty.”
