The Top 5 Downtown Kansas City Wedding Venues


Downtown Kansas City never ceases to amaze us. It seems like every month there’s a new wedding venue popping up somewhere. But the crazy-amazing thing about those wedding venues? No two of them are ever the same. There’s something to cater to everyone, whether it’s super modern, classic, fun and funky, or even a little bit rustic.

Downtown Kansas City Wedding venues seem to have it all. 

Add in the convenience factor (hello super close hotel rooms and streetcar access), and all of the entertainment options guests will have if they’re coming into town for your wedding, and downtown is the place to be. Living downtown we know just how special this part of the city is to so many of you, and why you must have your wedding ceremony here. 

Plus, with access to so many truly unique and great wedding photo locations, you’ll truly have a day unlike any other. 

The Top 5 Downtown Kansas City Wedding Venues 

The Gallery Event Space

The Gallery Event Space sits at the heart of downtown in the Power & Light District. One of the best things about The Gallery? It’s convenient!! It’s literally walking distance from some of the best hotels and restaurants in Kansas City. With a location in the Power & Light District your wedding day is sure to feel like a celebration, no matter the time of year. Add in the absolutely amazing custom experience and delicious food provided by the chefs at The Gallery, and your day is set.

28 Event Space

Friends, meet 28 Event Space and her two equally beautiful but so different wedding spaces: The Kansas City Room and The Station. Situated just blocks from Boulevard Brewery off Southwest Boulevard, 28 Event Space holds a special place in so many of our couples’ hearts. Both spaces at this venue include super awesome bride and groom suites, in addition to use of the venue’s busses for transportation. 

The Kansas City Room is the larger of the two spaces, and features a super unique mural of the Kansas City skyline. Add in the space’s ceiling of twinkly lights and this is for sure a heart stealer. The Station is a smaller, more intimate, and modern space. With two story white marble walls and giant garage doors, this space is perfect for more intimate celebrations.

The Otten on Main sits in the heart of the Crossroads District, just far enough away from downtown Kansas City to be able to see the full skyline, but close enough to just be a streetcar stop away from Power and Light. This venue is perfect for the downtown loving couple that wants to be downtown, but still wants a super unique venue for their wedding day.
