Job Description:

Executive Chef Aparium Hotel Group is looking for an Executive Chef to join our team at the brand new hotel in Kansas City, Missouri. The hotel pours new life into the historic Pabst and Pendergast buildings and the flourishing Crossroads Arts District neighborhood. The historic Pabst and Pendergast landmark building has been transformed into an upscale, independently-branded hotel. Opened in 2018, the hotel was designed by local architecture firm el dorado inc and features 131 guest rooms, meeting spaces and a restaurant, as well as a bar and a rooftop terrace. Constructed in 1911 as a bottling and distribution plant for The Pabst Brewing Company, the building was also once used for beer and liquor distribution during Prohibition. This transformation represents another Aparium project aimed at fostering the development of a dynamic local neighborhood.
