Pierpont’s at Union Station

30 W. Pershing Road, KCMO

There’s no better time to visit Union Station than during the holiday season, when the historic landmark is decked out with lights and a massive Christmas tree. Stop at the iconic Pierpont’s for a martini and take in the scene.

After you’ve walked around the Plaza admiring the lights, pop into Capital Grille’s new location and warm yourself up with the signature Stoli Doli and a dry-aged steak.
