The corner of 119th and Roe is a treasure trove of dining and shopping - sometimes called the Crossroads of Johnson County. It has a vibrant mix of retail, cuisine and entertainment, this golden corner literally offers everything from delicious fare to free summer concerts and winter ice skating.

Hawthorne Plaza boasts some of the most celebrated shopping in Kansas City. From sparkling baubles at iconic jeweler Tivol to one-of-a-kind home decor at StickSisters Art Furnishings and couture bridal gowns at Nolte's to luxurious lingerie at Claire de Lune, there's something for every taste and style.
