The Country Club Plaza (often called The Plaza) is a privately-owned regional shopping center in the Country Club District of Kansas City, Missouri. Opened in 1923, it was the first planned suburban shopping center and the first regional shopping center to accommodate shoppers arriving by car.

Planned in 1922 by J. C. Nichols and designed in Baroque Revival and Moorish Revival style echoing the architecture of Seville, Spain, the Plaza comprises high-end retail establishments, restaurants, and entertainment venues, as well as offices. The Country Club Plaza is named in the Project for Public Spaces' list 60 of the World's Great Places.
The center consists of 18 separate buildings representing 784,000 square feet (72,800 m2) of retail space and 219,000 square feet (20,300 m2) of office space.

  • Came for the architecture and did not leave disappointed! It's a lovely open air market / mall with your standard retail shops housed in some beautiful Moorish Revival.

  • Thought this would be a place for some evening shopping and activity, but they pull in the sidewalks and the place is deserted by 8pm.

  • A nice shopping mall in Overland Park. The entire mall has Moorish architecture, which is very distinct and memorable. It has all the stores that you would expect a mall to have. The streets can get a bit loud as you walk from store to store, but I imagine at certain times it gets better.
  • Nice area with lots of shops to look at. A lot of the shops in my opinion, were on the expensive side or were more geared towards females(clothing), but still enjoyed walking around. The architecture of the buildings was pretty neat.
  • Nice places to visit, shop and dine within walking distance from the Marriot hotel. Perfect for an afternoon walk with the perfect KC fall weather. Most of the restaurants required a reservation so plan ahead. Oh we even got to spot Spider-Man (apparently not a rare sight) he was to fast to take a picture.
  • Always nice to go out & walk on the plaza. Lots of food/shopping but it'd be nice if they still had the Nike store down there. Forever 21 is good to have but no plus size options in the store. More "luxury" brands and small businesses down there which is good. Plenty of food options ranging from snacks (auntie Anne's) to high end restaurants
  • Great shops and restaurants! I didn't have time to see them all, but I hope to come back and visit more!
