books-picHappy Hour in the Crossroads at Afterword Tavern & Shelves – Wednesday, APRIL 17th

Join us for a Happy Hour at Afterword Tavern & Shelves in the Crossroads of Kansas City, MO!

Luke and Christian, two U of I alums from the class of 2003 and now proud Kansas City residents, opened this bookshop / bar / café on September 26, 2018. Located at 19th & Grand, Afterword has cozy areas for reading, high top tables for meeting up with friends, and a long bar boasting bartenders making delicious cocktails. Never fear, Illinois natives, Old Style is also on the menu.

In homage to Champaign-Urbana, Afterword features an Illini Mug Club for KC Illini members. The Illini Mug Club card gets the lucky bearer a $2 Old Style any time he or she wishes.


In addition to Illini Happy Hours, Afterword aspires to host a mix of intriguing and scintillating events, such as book clubs, TED Talk-ish events, wine tastings, political Q&A and the like. Any suggestions regarding events that you would like to see will be warmly welcomed!
