Default Westport Ale House opens Friday in former Streetside Records building





Westport’s iconic Streetside Records building will reopen Friday as Westport Ale House.




FRED BLOCHER | The Kansas City Star Zach Marten and Bret Springs are preparing to open their Westport Ale House on March 3 in the former location of Streetside Records at 4128 Broadway. On Monday, there still was some interior and exterior work going on.



Zach Marten and Bret Springs, owners of the Coal Vines pizza and wine bar on the Country Club Plaza, liked the building’s unique 1950s architecture, its high profile location along Broadway, and its close proximity to another unique locally owned concept, Port Fonda.
But since they signed a lease last summer, other locally owned venues also have signed on nearby, including Ca Va, a champagne bar, which had a soft opening Friday, and Julep, an upscale whiskey bar that is scheduling an April opening.
Marten and Springs also liked the size of the building — 5,000 square feet for the restaurant and sports lounge, along with 5,000 square feet on the bottom level for kitchen, offices and storage — a rare commodity in Westport.
“We are happy to have our own concept in Westport and I think we are bringing something new and needed — 20 plus televisions, the rooftop, the sports lounge concept,” Marten said.
Westport Ale House will specialize in American beers and beer cocktails and offer an upscale sports bar menu that will include Maryland crab tater tots, specialty hamburgers (including one with pecan-smoked bacon, smoked Gouda and stout barbecue sauce), beer brats, Hawaiian hot dogs (cheddar jalapeno brat, pineapple, and house-made beerkraut on a jalapeno cheddar pretzel bun), the California chicken sandwich (grilled chicken breast, Monterey Jack cheese, chipotle salsita, avocado, lettuce, tomato, red onion and mayonnaise).
It will have a fried chicken special on Sundays, a prime rib special on Mondays, and 1/2 price wings on Tuesdays.
Desserts will include Tank 7 Donuts (doughnut holes, vanilla bean ice cream, and house-cured bacon, topped with a Boulevard Pale Ale caramel glaze).
A central rectangular bar dominates the room. There also are two cozy 13-foot sofas in the lounge area, or customers can be in the middle of the action at one of the community tables in front of the floor-to-ceiling windows along Broadway. The windows will open to the outdoor patio during warmer weather.
The partners also plan to put in a rooftop deck this summer.
Westport Ale House, at 4128 Broadway, is scheduled to open at 4 p.m. Friday.
Hours will then be 4 p.m. to 1 a.m. Monday through Thursday; 11 a.m. to 1 a.m. Friday and Saturday; and 11 a.m. to midnight Sunday.

I am excited to try this. CaVa (Howard Hannah's new champagne bar) opened this past week as well and I approve.

Wish I could find that blonde that worked there circa 1986. It's been a missed connection that has bugged me ever since.

Please tell me you've been searching 'streetside records' since the internet was created and that's how you found this old thread...

I'm pretty sure they opened the rooftop patio before it started getting real cold (the soft opening occurred anyway,) but apparently its supposed to be pretty rad! It's a nice different change for a westport bar (sports bar concept, thing.) I kinda like it, the staff is pretty great. Dez rulez.
