The Very Best Cocktail Bars In Wichita, Kansas

Ross Walker

Wichita’s nightlife is mostly breweries and pubs but there are a few that serve fantastic cocktails for very reasonable prices. Whether you’re interested in having a few creative shots at a dive bar or enjoying a cigar and a martini, you’ll find something to love about Wichita’s premier cocktail bars.

The Anchor

The Anchor is part restaurant, part cocktail bar and a local favorite in Wichita. The drinks aren’t wildly creative but there is something refreshing about Anchor’s simple cocktails, like the Black Cherry Mojito. It retains the tartness and freshness of the traditional Mojito while adding the sweetness of the cherry.
The Anchor, 1109 E Douglas Ave, Wichita, KS 67211 (316) 260-8989

Morts Martini and Cigar Bar

What goes better together than cigars and martinis? Morts is the perfect choice for a classy night out in Wichita. The martini menu is astounding – there are over 160 different martinis for you to choose from. The cigar menu is equally impressive – Macanudo, Arturo Fuente, and Romeo y Julieta are all on sale. Every night there is a different drink special and some nights the cigars are discounted as well.

Rain Cafe and Lounge

Rain Cafe and Lounge is a trendy spot with classic cocktails, a solid wine list, and a few beers on draft. We recommend the Cumbermelon Slice, which is a vodka drink mixed with cucumber juice, topped off with a juicy slice of melon. At the weekends Rain Cafe becomes Club Rain, a hip night club that plays current pop and dance songs.

J Lounge

J Lounge is a self described upscale dive. J’s offers over 101 different types of martinis. The real sell of J’s is the drink specials every night: Mondays mean $3.50 Cosmos, and the Thursday special is $2 off every martini. Come to J’s for an afterwork drink or an impromptu social gathering – they have a pool table, a dart board, and even a Wii to play with.

Oasis Lounge

Oasis is a bar and restaurant serving almost any type of liquor you could think of as well as pub fare like burgers and sandwiches. Oasis’ cocktail menu is fairly straightforward but they do get very creative with their shots menu. They have Jaeger bombs, Tuaca bombs, and car bombs alongside bombs you’ve never heard of, and might not be able to remember.
