Trip Planner: USA / Missouri / Kansas City / Tom's Town Distilling Co.
Tom’s Town Distilling Co. draws its name and inspiration from the country’s most polarizing and corrupt political boss, Tom Pendergast. Pendergast had roots in the liquor business as a saloon keeper and as the founder of a wholesale liquor company.Take the guesswork out of planning a Kansas City vacation by using our trip itinerary maker.
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 like water, right out in the open. When a newspaperman asked Pendergast how he justified ignoring Prohibition, he shrugged and said, “The people are thirsty.”
Today the people are still thirsty in Kansas City and across the U.S. We aim to satisfy that thirst by distilling spirits in the time-honored ways that produce superior products. 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. The deco optimism and glamorous magnetism of the roaring 1920s comes alive through Tom’s Town.

Some friends and I went for a bachelorette party. We did a tour, tasting, and ate some food in the restaurant. All of it was so enjoyable. Our tour guide, Dick, gave us a wonderful history lesson...

Super distillery tour. Excellent service. And the bartender made the absolute best drink I've ever had. They have the downstairs set up for Halloween right now, it is called The Cloven Hoof. Had a drink and dinner there after the tour then moved upstairs for dessert. I absolutely recommend this place if you have the chance to go. Loved it!!
If you are thinking of having your wedding or event at Tom's Town do it! My wedding was 10/29/22 in the Rickenbacker Room. I got so many compliments about how beautiful the space was! It has an open concept with windows throughout overlooking the city with beautiful exposed bricks and art deco vibes. The space was perfect for our 75 guests seated. We also had extra space for cocktail tables and a small seated area! The event coordinator, Britney, was FABULOUS! I was one of the events that started with the old coordinator that wasn't as good but once Britney took over all my stress about the event disappeared. She listened to our wants and gave out wonderful advice. Also, the staff at Tom's Town is the best out there. Matty and the rest of the bartenders were FANTASTIC! You can tell they enjoy their jobs which gave out the best energy to my guests. We can't wait to enjoy our anniversaries and just date nights at Tom's Town because they really do have excellent cocktails!
