Kelsey Alt

General Manager

Wine director, general manager, and Kansas City native, ​Kelsey Alt​ brings her extensive hospitality knowledge and love for her hometown to ​Hotel Kansas City’s The Town Company​ and ​Hotel Kansas City’s​ Lobby Bar concept.

As a native, ​Alt​ has witnessed first hand the evolution the historic city has undergone. In approaching The Town Company’s wine curation, ​Alt​ tasked herself with epitomizing Kansas City’s spirit into a wine list. Mimicking Chef Johnny Leach’s intention of working with what Kansas City’s land, farmers, and purveyors embody, she has worked to translate those qualities into her wine curation. Although this wine list is the shortest ​Alt​ has written in her career thus far, showcasing around 60 bottles, she has used this opportunity to execute a dream lineup she has envisioned for years.

Through her fine dining service experience, ​Alt​ has honed the ability to create an atmosphere similar to a friend’s table, while simultaneously incorporating special moments that make guests feel truly celebrated. ​Alt​ revels in the opportunity to contribute to her hometown’s burgeoning culinary and sociallandscapethroughT​ heTownCompany​and​HotelKansasCity’s​ lobby bar​​experiences.
