Kansas City is the home of great food, awesome live music, an incredible number of playhouses, museums, concert venues, sports complexes and an abundance of areas to participate in indoor and outdoor activities.

ReachMobi Office Amenities

ReachMobi’s Kansas City office is officially part of The Plaza, a humongous shopping center (more on that later). We walk to lunch each day, dine at the best restaurants and shopping area in KC.

If you didn’t have time to grab breakfast before making it to the office, not to worry – we’ve got you covered. You’ll find cereal, AMAZING coffee, hot chocolate, energy drinks, and more.

Lunch anyone? ReachMobi’s KC’s team is treated to a catered lunch twice a week, with famous KC BBQ making a frequent appearance! In addition, we have snacks, cookies, chips, Gatorade, and if there is something special you would like… just ask. Seriously.

For those team members who need a break to get their creative juices flowing again, our game room has just the answer! We have Ping-Pong, pool, foosball, darts, hoops, and other assorted mischiefs. It gets better… we have a beer fridge that’s always stocked to the brim for that crucial 4:00 brewski.

Country Club Plaza

The Country Club Plaza (also called The Plaza), a gigantic shopping center designed with a distinctive theme of Seville Spain. It’s filled with stories of all varieties plus a lot of awesome places to eat or sip cocktails!

The Plaza’s popularity and reputation have been recognized around the country. The entire 15-block district, with more than 150 shops and dozens of fine restaurants, makes the Country Club Plaza Kansas City’s premier retail, dining and entertainment destination.

It’s a must-see at Christmas time during the Country Club Plaza’s “Season of Lights.” It’s one of the city’s longest and oldest traditions where a special guest or celebrity “flips the switch” each year.

During Thanksgiving, thousands of people gather to enjoy local entertainment.

The shopping center consists of 18 separate buildings, totaling 804,000 square feet of retail space, plus 468,000 feet of office space. Yeah, it’s gargantuan!

Food & Bars

When some people think Kansas City – they may not immediately think “BBQ” – but they should!

Kansas City is famous for its steak and its barbecue and was once world-renown for its Kansas City strip steaks. Even though it may not be “deep down south” – Southern cuisine is also extremely popular, prepared to perfection and everywhere in Kansas City.

When it comes to good food, delightful drinks, and inspiring atmosphere – in Kansas City – are in abundant supply.

ReachMobi is not far from one of our favorite hangouts, Char Bar, which features some of the best Southern-inspired BBQ, cocktails served in big ol’ Mason-jars and a gaming area where the whole gang can get involved.

Nearby, you’ll also find ethnic cuisine of every variety including Chinese, Thai, Mexican, French, Italian, Japanese, Southern, homestyle American, Greek and more – all within a short drive.
