The Monarch Cocktail Bar & Lounge, owned by David and Noelle Manica, was established in 2017 for the cocktail curious and the fine drink connoisseur alike.  The artful creations are inspired by the various flight paths of one of the world’s most intriguing creatures - the Monarch butterfly. The Monarch Bar is located in Kansas City, MO in the Country Club Plaza.


Exit Strategy manages and oversees all day-to-day operations. 


Inspired by its name, Verdigris was named after the natural green patine formed when copper, brass, or bronze is weathered and exposed to air or water over time. The alchemical symbol, otherwise known as a sun cross, for Verdigris is reflected in the logo. Verdigris is located in Leawood, Kansas. 

Due to COVID-19, Verdigris opened exclusively for bottled, to-go cocktails only in March 2020, officially opening to the public for indoor seating in June 2020. Verdigris is owned and operated by Exit Strategy.



Located on the 14th floor of the Reverb Luxury Apartments, The Mercury Room offers a one-of-a-kind cocktail experience. Similar to the smallest planet in our Solar System, the space is most suitable for small gatherings or an intimate date night. The menu changes according to the number of days it takes Planet Mercury to rotate around the Earth, approximately every 88 days.

The Mercury Room is open for reservations and walk-ins, and adheres to a strict dress code. Please visit the website below for more information. The Mercury Room is owned and operated by Exit Strategy.
