Rustic Event Space With Courtyard
Kansas City, MO
Before the Power & Light District; before the Sprint Center; before First Fridays; even before the new Kansas City Star building, Ron Berg was hanging out at 15th and Grand in one of Kansas City’s hippest urban loft spaces. You may never have met Ron Berg, but I’m sure you’ve seen his photography. He does commercial work for top-tier companies: AMC, American Century, Amoco, Backwoods, Bayer, Beechcraft, Blockbuster, Blue Bunny Ice Cream…. I haven’t even gotten to the C’s yet. Anyway, years ago Ron got the wild idea to buy the old Midland Motor Company showroom at 1525 Grand and convert it into a studio. He was way ahead of his time: these days it seems like everyone in Kansas City is moving to the crossroads. 80% of our space is below the surface. You can get a decent feel for the space by looking at the pictures and reading the facts, but to really understand, you have to visit. Our event space has a certain electricity and life about it. It just feels like a good place for a party. It could be the location, or it could be the combination of vintage guts and modern refinement. More importantly, the space has some great people behind the scenes, namely Jillian. When you book an event at the space in Kansas City, you can be sure that Jillian will be keeping tabs on things, making sure that the space looks great and the vendors are tactful, tasteful, and on time. The Fun Stuff We have a range of unique features that make it a perfect fit for weddings. Here’s just a few: • Our courtyard: The courtyard has become something of an icon in the Kansas City Wedding Scene. If you’ve spent much time looking through photographer’s websites, you’ve probably seen the shots of the courtyard lit up at night in all its romantic appeal •The freight elevator: I know this sounds like a strange perk, but we love it. This isn’t a modern elevator. It’s an old wooden dinosaur with huge wooden doors that look as if they’ve survived a few wars and but still open gracefully to the event space. Many brides and grooms use it to enter the ceremony or reception. It’s a great urban twist on the traditional church door entrance. •Beams and rafters: These are great for hanging lights, lanterns, garlands, fabric, etc… In fact, some couples even get married in the center of the room with the chandelier overhead and ceiling treatments such as paper lanterns radiating from the center. •Steel Wall: At the front of the room, beside the freight elevator is a wonderful curved steel wall. It makes a great place to display pictures and memorabilia. The Facts •Rates: At the time of this writing, the rates are $2,500-$4,500. •Max standing/seating room: The event space can accommodate 250 people in a mixed standing/seating party. For ceremony/sit down dinner the space holds 200. •Max seating room: If all guests are to be seated at tables, the event space can seat about 185. •Ceremony & Reception in one location: Many couples like to have their wedding and reception in a single location. Jillian and her staff can accommodate with ease. The space can be configured in several different ways for a ceremony; then after the ceremony, the guests can mingle at the landing or in the courtyard while the staff flips the room for the reception. •Time Available: Rental rates include five-six hours for the event and four hours prior for set up. Last call is at Midnight. Additional hours needed are billed at $300 an hour.

About Kansas City

This town was first known as the Town of Kansa, followed by the City of Kansas, and finally the current Kansas City. This cheerful town was home to the first Happy Meal as well as Walt Disney’s very first animation studio which went by the name of Laugh-O-Gram Studios. That studio was also where the famed Mickey Mouse character was created, named after a real mouse who lived in the building. You might hear people call Kansas City the City of Fountains, which is well earned as over 200 fountains can be found scattered throughout it.

You’ll have much to do in this town, like visiting the Country Club PLaza which was the first suburban shopping district in the country, or taking a stroll in the beautiful Swope Park which is over twice as big as New York’s famous Central Park. With more boulevards than Paris, 103 playgrounds, 220 parks and 29 lakes, you’ll get lost having fun in Kansas City.

Reception Options in Kansas City

A reception venue is usually a gathering of people who are participating in the same event. Whether you are holding an anniversary reception, dance recital reception, gallery reception or function of some other type, there are several things that you will need to plan before hosting the get-together.

  • Decorations
    You will need your reception venue in Kansas City to be welcoming for your guests, and decorating the space is a great way to do that. Consider visiting a decoration shop or hiring a professional company to help you out.

  • Music

  • Caterer
    You might not need to feed everyone at your reception venue a full meal, but having a small buffet table or a waiter circling around with some platters and finger foods will keep your guests satisfied. A local Kansas City catering company can help you plan this part of the event.

Pros and Cons of Receptions in Kansas City

The location that you choose will play a large role in your event and how it will play out, and some locations are better suited for different events than others. Here are some advantages and disadvantages of hosting a reception venue in Kansas City.

Advantages

  • The nightlife
    Kansas City is one of the places that comes to life at night with lots of restaurants and nightclubs to visit. Many people also like to celebrate the sporting events in this city, and “watch parties” are a common occurrence.

  • Lots of free events to attend
    One great thing about Kansas City is that it is very affordable as most of its tours are free to the public. The Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art, Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art as well as the Boulevard Brewing Company and Harley-Davidson Vehicle and Powertrain Operations facility are some of the attractions that you don’t need to pay to see.

  • Barbeques
    Kansas City is ranked as one of the top best barbeque cities, and you’ll have a hard time finding food at a restaurant that isn’t absolutely delicious. The Westside of town is also known for its Mexican food, if that is more your taste.

Disadvantages

  • Getting around
    The metropolitan district in Kansas City is a big area, spanning almost 315 square miles. This means that there is lots to explore, but you will most likely need a car to get around. Kansas City does offer a metro and bus system, but not all outlying areas can be easily accessed through public transportation.

  • High crime rate
    Unfortunately, Kansas City has a fairly high crime rate ranking in the top five of the country’s most dangerous. Violent crime in this city is almost 4 times higher than the national average. This is still a great location for a reception venue, just be sure to lock your personal belongings away and stay with a friend if you are planning to go out late at night.

  • The weather
    This city has a hard-to-love climate, with humid summers and fairly unpredictable winters. As well, the temperatures tend to switch rapidly depending on the time of year making spring and fall seasons practically non-existent. Try to research the average temperatures at the time of your reception venue in Kansas City, especially if you were planning to have it outside.

Famous Locations in Kansas City

  • The National World War I Museum
    This famous museum is located at the Liberty Memorial and offers the chance to see a variety of historical artifacts dating back from 1920. They boast the world’s biggest collection of items relating to the first world war, with over 75,000 objects available to the public to see.

One of the most astounding models is a full replica of the city that uses more than 1.5 million pieces of LEGO. Other attractions at LEGOLAND include a 4D cinema and interactive rides.

  • American Jazz Museum
    This museum, unsurprisingly found in the city’s jazz district, has immersive exhibits like listening stations and videos educating on the history of jazz. You can also enjoy live jazz music by visiting the Blue Room, a club that is found right inside the museum.
