Welcome to the Rumely Event Space located in Kansas City’s 12th Street Bridge district of the historic West Bottoms. Built in the 1880’s the building was once operated by the Advance-Rumely Thresher Company, giving the building its unique name. The Rumely Event space is a product of two years of extensive restoration in which no cost was spared to preserve the history and authenticity of the landmark site. The result is a seamless combination of historic architecture with modern convenience and enduring elegance.
The priceless history of the Rumely Building with its original tin ceiling, wood floor, exposed columns and antique fixtures is joined seamlessly together with all the amenities one would want in a modern venue. The Rumely Event Space truly evokes a feeling of timelessness gained from it’s rich history and reminiscent of the industrious boom of the past while maintaining the modern elegance demanded today. These unique qualities of The Rumely will enhance your event’s character and create lifelong memories for you and your guest.
The Rumely has approximately 8,500 sq ft of interior space. Enough for a seated dinner for 400 of your guest but is warm and welcoming for much smaller parties too. It features a secluded bridal chamber and Groom suit both with private bathrooms. The massive freight elevator is complete with chandeliers and feels more like a time machine than a way of ascending to the space. You and your guest will be transported back to a time when opulence and style were a way of life. A time when industrial tycoons in horse drawn carriages shared the streets with the cities first automobiles. It’s an experience you will never forget.
