Welcome to the Dining Experience at Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts where the Center invites you to enjoy a gourmet meal freshly prepared and served in the comfortable and sophisticated Founders’ Lounge. Located just within the south doors, the Founders’ Lounge offers you a sweeping view of Kansas City in a sleek and sophisticated atmosphere. Arrive ahead of the crowds and indulge in a relaxing meal just steps away from your seats.

Available prior to performances, the Kauffman Center invites you to sample one of the gourmet artisanal meal combinations offered in our signature Marquee box. The Kauffman Center has crafted an exclusive modern-American dining option featuring exquisite yet casual gourmet cuisine.
