Southport is an anomaly of sorts, a quiet, tree-lined avenue with dozens of hidden neighborhood bars. At Crossing Tavern, a brightly lit, residential masterpiece, large front windows open to welcome in the breezes and the sounds of summer, and skylights allow patrons to bask in just the right amount of sunshine.
Whether you come for dinner with many, or lounge in the very back with a best friend to watch games, Crossing Tavern has something for everyone. It's also the favorite hangout of University of Kansas alums, who've been known to pack the place during the NCAA men's basketball tournament. Arrive early to linger in one of the sheltered patio's popular wicker booths.Advertising Content
