Kites was established in 1954 and named after legendary Kansas State athlete, Keith "Kite" Thomas! Today we're keeping his tradition alive as Manhattan's most legendary establishment. We hope to give the next generation the same great memories and you just can't do that without a place in Aggieville called "Kite's". From our world famous mozzarella sticks to our sweet Cookie Bakes to grabbing a game day pint with your buddies, we love being a part of the Manhattan and K-State communities. We hope you make Kite's your new tradition and follow the suggestion that has been in our logo for over 68 years. . . 

Meet your friends at Kite's!

From our humble beginnings as a "beer" only tavern to our present day status as a Manhattan establishment for gameday and more, we're proud to be a place where the community can get together with their friends and make great memories!
