Travis Stewart has been shaking things up in Kansas City since 2010. He has worked in many of KC’s finest bars including Manifesto, Port Fonda, Kill Devil Club and his current “home behind the wood’ Extra Virgin. Travis has been a finalist in a handful of cocktail competitions and was awarded Kansas City’s Best Bartender by the Pitch in 2012. When he isn’t creating new libations, much of his time outside the bar is dedicated to his other profession as an artist. He specializes in mixed media painting utilizing packaging and materials found behind the bar to create time capsules of the present cocktail, spirits and wine culture. Much of his work can be found hanging in the Crossroads and in the private dining room at Extra Virgin.
