Now open in Kansas City

We opened Saturday, Feb. 25 with a grand opening like no other - more than 300 people waiting to get in. We have 100 craft beers on tap, including rarieties from local and national brewers. Thanks for the warm welcome, KC. Come visit! Thanks to Kansas City's The Conquerors for allowing us to use their song "Turned Me To Stone" from the album "Wyld Time."


It isn't just a 14-letter word

We're serious about our role as conscientious business owners, constantly looking for ways we can be better stewards of our environment. We recycle or compost most of our waste, reducing the amount of trash going to landfills and incinerators by 90 percent. We also strive to source food and products from companies with similar commitments.

Doing this isn't easy. We train every employee to sort waste, including the packaging that food and other materials arrives in and the leftovers on your plate when you finish dining with us.

Instead of just dumping everything in one place, food waste is placed into our compost bin, along with our compostable paper products, used straws and other compostable items. We recycle almost everything we can't compost - cardboard boxes, cans, glass, plastic containers -- you name it. So what makes up the "other" 10 percent? Often it's made up of unmarked plastic wrappings, disposable gloves used by our kitchen staff when preparing food and garbage brought in by our employees and guests that can't be recycled.

Why do we do this? Well, take a look behind your average restaurant. There's often a big, overflowing garbage bin - almost everything bound for a landfill or an incinerator. We decided that had to stop. So we talked to our employees, did some research and developed our waste-reduction program. A lot of people said we were crazy, that it would cost too much. Once we understood how much waste we could divert or eliminate, we knew it would cost us too much not to do this.

We're Hiring!


We're open, but still hiring.

We're looking for experienced bartenders, cooks and servers as well as barbacks, dishwashers, hosts, foodrunners and security team members.

Who are we looking for?

People with a passion for incredible service and quality who want a family-like work environment. It helps if you like craft beer, too. Our employees don't wear uniforms. We train everyone to recycle and compost about 90 percent of our waste and we have a great time working hard together.

 Stop by and ask to apply. The best times to do so are between 2 and 5p.m. Monday-Thursday or by appointment by emailing kc@hopcat.com.
