Vintage Kansas - A Celebration of Kansas City Past!


The Egyptian Room.

    Off from the main corridor again, as you walk along on the right is the Egyptian Room.  It is used as a cafe and is designed to carry the diner back to the Egyptian period; the entire design and decorative scheme is carried out in the Egyptian style and in a most unique way. There are Egyptian columns, pilasters, vases, all richly carved with the hieroglyphics of ancient Egypt. The hieroglyphics are inscribed and cut into the walls with tool instruments and afterwards picked out in color by the artists.

     The fixtures are purely Egyptian in character, and in fact the whole room depicts so little of American effect that it carries one back to Egypt and creates food for the mind of the diner while he is being ministered to the wants of his inner man.
