Third Street Social is an American restaurant that is inspired to bring the big city feel to Lee’s Summit. After witnessing the culture of different restaurants in Chicago, Domhnall Molloy and Andy Lock immediately knew they wanted to bring that same feeling back home. Arnold Hall is the perfect spot to create this atmosphere. With it, Third Street Social is able to provide a unique spot that boasts plush booths, exposed beams, a large open kitchen and a three-season patio. Alongside a menu that is driven by the chefs’ imaginations, how can you not have something to talk about with friends and family while you’re here?
Arnold Hall was built in 1946 by Sherwood Manufacturing, currently across the street from City Hall in the heart of Lee’s Summit. It was donated to the city in 1950 by Joseph Arnold to create a community center. Since then, the building has been a senior center, restaurant, business incubator and meeting space for the city council and other community members. Arnold Hall is listed in the National Register of Historic Places. The building sits in the spot where the old Memorial building used to stand, a building made famous from former President Harry S. Truman declaring his candidacy for Eastern Judge of the Jackson County Court on the steps.
