Our Story


Our Daily Nada is a bookstore and bar located in Kansas City's River Market. Our name is a nod to the Hemingway short story "A Clean Well Lighted Place" which is a story in part about everyone needing a place to escape. Our Daily Nada aims to be that place. Slow down. Get back to basics. Connect with your favorite characters (whether in books or the barstool next to you) in a more meaningful way.

Founded by Amy Covitz and Andrea Baca, Our Daily Nada is a dream five years in the making. The two share a love of good books, good conversation and a good drink. We wanted to create a place where everyone can enjoy those simple pleasures.
