KANSAS CITY—A Kansas City affiliate of the Cordish Company is enlisting the talents of Ryan Maybee, a local mixologist and entrepreneur, to start a new club called The Kill Devil Club in the Power and Light district.
The name reflects old-timey slang for rum, and rum and live jazz are what the club is all about. As Maybee told the Kansas City Star:
“ECI approached me a couple of times before and the timing is good now. The concept is right,” Maybee said. “The idea of focusing on rum is kind of fun and sets you apart, gives you a specific identity.”
