About Voltaire "We're all in this together"

by: Olney Fisher  

Spaces Kansas City

In an area visited primarily for the American Royal, the antique and flea markets on First Fridays, or perhaps by those in the food industry making a mad dash to Restaurant Depot, the West Bottoms has a new destination—Voltaire at 1617 Genessee St.

Previously home to R Bar, the space was designed by John O’Brien in 2009. “Urban Saloon” best describes the atmosphere, which is completely appropriate to its location in the West Bottoms, former home of the Kansas City Stockyards. The new tenants of the space knew to leave well enough alone. The long, almost tunnel-like space is at the same time both open and cozy. Lots of warm, dark wood, vintage lighting, and original tile and concrete floors define the space. The walls are hung with art that should inspire conversation, if nothing else. The sounds of vintage vinyl albums being played behind the bar add to the atmosphere (you can, in fact, bring your own vinyl to play). And the impressively stocked bar runs almost the full length of the venue.

Chef Wes Gartner and Jill Myers, a former Hallmark designer turned caterer, moved into the space more than a year ago. Phase one was an expansion of the kitchen for Moxie Catering, their successful catering business known for its interesting and inventive cuisine. Voltaire quietly opened its doors in April this year, and the noise has been growing ever since. The name was inspired by the Cabaret Voltaire in Zurich, an avante-garde establishment that played host to the Dadaists and others questioning the status quo in Europe during the First World War. I don’t think they want to start a philosophical revolution here in Kansas City. I think they just want to shake things up a little—like a well-shaken martini.
