After more than 8 years in its previous Westport location, Mike’s Wine and Spirits announces the grand opening of its new Westport store on Dec. 11. The new, locally owned Mike’s Wine and Spirits is a major neighborhood investment of $3.5 million, spanning three lots at 1110 Westport Road, across the side street adjacent to its previous location at 1106 Westport Road.
The new Westport location of Mike’s Wine and Spirits is nearly triple the square-footage at 7,500 square-feet, greatly expanding the selection of brands. This new store offers three times the selection than that of the previous Westport location.
A wine sommelier and beer manager are on staff as resources for customers. The new spot also features a walk-in wine cellar, cigar humidor, reserve room and the largest selection of craft beer in Kansas City.
Mike Doohan started Mike’s Wine and Spirits nearly 20 years ago and has grown to three locations. The other locations are in Brookside and Waldo. The Westport location also serves as a hub for its liquor delivery service. As Mike’s has grown, so has the family involvement with Mike’s sons, Pat and Andy, now involved in the business.

- Wednesday, Dec. 11, 4 – 7 p.m.: Wine Tastings
