Julie · Getting married on 09/19/2020
Perfect venue for a perfect wedding! I highly recommend getting the full package. The day of coordinator, setup, and breakdown was a lifesaver to ensure the day of I could just relax and they would take care of the details. The suites for the bridal party to get ready in the morning of was so convenient and since I had a large wedding party I couldn't imagine getting ready anywhere else- lots of space! Guests loved the photo booth and the overall decor of the venue, little decorations are needed. Lastly, being able to bring your own caterer and your own liquor saved us a lot of money. Highly recommended!Sent on 04/27/2014

My husband and I got married on June 14, 2019 and had our reception in the Kansas City Room. When we visited back in July, this was ranked the top in both of our lists. The room is breathtaking! Not only is it big and perfect to accommodate any number of guests (we had 250), but the mural of the skyline is just so different and unique than any other venue! It was fun for our guests and is a great way to remember 28 Event Space! The staff is extremely accommodating. I felt Maura was extremely personable, even calming when I was stress crying (LOL- thank you!). Everything we had talked about and planned was perfect and went smoothly! The tables arrangements and decor looked amazing! We used their suggested DJ package, Icon Event Space. My parents, husband and I are so glad we picked this beautiful spot. Our guests had a blast, as did we! Everyone had such nice things to say! The only complaint we have is it was a little warm in the room before we opened the garage doors. We understand though because what room wouldn’t be with 250 people? Ha! However, it was totally OK! We highly recommend this space! Thank you, again!!!!Sent on 06/24/2019

We looked at so many venues and from day one this was our first choice. I loved that it’s all there set up for you and you as the bride dont have to worry about set up and tear down! All I had to do was set up my centerpieces and the natural beauty of the Evenf Space did the rest! Besides the event space being perfect they offer a loft area in the back that was the coolest spot to get ready! I just loved that we could all be at the same place and not worry about driving around trying to get to certain places at certain times. There are also a lot of cool photo options around the venue which made our photo session super simple and fast! The staff was definitely top notch, very professional and stepped in to help even when the issues were outside of their scope. I truly cannot say enough great things about this place! I wish I could do it all over again!!!

We rented 28 Event Space-Kansas City room on 02/03/18 for a wedding reception and our event was everything we expected and more. The staff from the planning stage to the day of were professional, accommodating and responsive. We paid for the basic package but they treated us as if we went “all out”. We did not serve alcohol but the bartender kept the soda, coffee and water filled to our expectation. Parking attendants were awesome as well. Our day of coordinator was one step ahead of us on things we didn’t think of in advance. Everything went so well I, as the mother of the bride, was able to relax and enjoy the event. For that I’m am so thankful!Sent on 04/03/2018

Honestly words can not express how much I love this venue. It is absolutely stunning and really doesn't require a whole lot of decorating because of how incredible the inside space is. Our pictures look amazing with the glowing lights that hang down from the ceiling. So many of my guests came up to me that night saying how much they loved the venue. It has a really cool outdoor space where the non-dancers were able to relax and have fun as well. Sylvia and Karly were a dream team. They answered all my silly questions leading up to the big day and were awesome the day of in making it look incredible. Everyone said it was the best wedding they have ever been to and I seriously think the event space was a huge part of it!Sent on 09/14/2016

I would definitely recommend 28 Event Space to any bride. My husband and I were looking for a venue where we could have both our ceremony and reception in the same place. It is also nice that 28 Event Space lets you choose your own caterer and bring in your own alcohol. A lot of the venues we looked at had in-house caterers you had to use and you were required to purchase the alcohol through them. Our package included bartenders, but we were able to get the alcohol through Top-Shelf liquor at a great price, and when we didn't use it all, they bought it back from us. (Big $ saver) Everything was so flexible, it was amazing. We couldn't have found a more convenient venue. We chose a package that was very reasonably priced that let us use the entire venue (complete with "bridal suite" and "groom's cave"). With our package we also got day of coordination, unlimited use of the photo booth, bartenders, party bus, limo, reception set up and tear down, patio heaters, and we got to stay the night in the bridal suite. My bridesmaids and I were able to get ready in the bridal suite (which has so many photo ops) while my husband and the groomsmen hung out in the groom's suite. My bridesmaids and I had stayed the night at a hotel the night before and 28 was able to pick us up from the hotel in their party bus and take us to the venue to continue getting ready. We used the party bus and limo to drive around and take pictures before the ceremony. The ceremony went smoothly. If you get day of coordination, 28 will contact your vendors the week of the wedding and confirm/arrange what time they will be arriving. It was a relief not to have to do that the week of the wedding when I was already stressing out over other things. We got compliments from guests on the convenience and how amazing the venue looked! It really speaks for itself. Maura and Renee were amazing throughout the entire process. It's so unique and I would choose 28 Event Space over and over again without hesitation.Sent on 10/28/2015

This space is perfection! It is incredibly unique, there is nothing like it in the Kansas City area. Everything about this space was fantastic, from the layout and amenities to the amazing coordination staff, I could not have had a more perfect venue to celebrate the best day of my life. Not only did we have our reception at the venue but we also had our ceremony and our rehearsal dinner and Maura and Renee took all the stress out of planning all of it. They know exactly what to do to make your day run as smoothly as possible, which is critical for your wedding day sanity. They are both so sweet and great to be around (another wedding day life saver.) Every single one of my guests commented on how beautiful the space was, how easy and close the parking is (sounds weird but at other weddings it can be a real pain), and how friendly the staff was. On the night before the wedding I stayed in the Bridal Suite space with all of my bridesmaids and we had such a fun time. We watched movies, drank wine, and chatted and it was so nice and so comfortable to be in the space where we were going to be all weekend. We didn't have to worry about waking up and rushing to another hotel, or rushing to a salon to get ready. We woke up and walked to the Roasterie for some coffee and we were able to walk right back to get ready for the big day- it was so relaxing! My husband and all of his groomsmen arrived later in the day, and they were able to watch sports and get ready in grooms quarters and we didn't have to worry about waiting to anyone to arrive or having to run from place to place. The whole time we were getting ready Maura or Renee would be setting up our space and making sure everything was perfect. We got to spend the whole day enjoying our time with our loved ones, instead of running around and I cannot tell you how much that keeps your mind at ease and keeps all the stress away. The girls helped the ceremony go perfectly and the reception was flawless.Sent on 09/30/2015

My husband and I were recently married at 28 Event Space and it was a WONDERFUL experience! Renee and Maura were so incredibly helpful from the moment we booked the venue all the way through our reception. They literally think of everything and they make sure they have every detail covered so you don’t have to worry about anything on your wedding day. They are both so organized and responsive and they made the entire process so easy for us. They took care of coordinating the arrival times with all of our vendors and just handled all of the last minute details. We rented out both loft spaces as well as the party bus to transport us off-site for our wedding photos. My husband’s parents stayed in the larger loft space Thursday and Friday night and they loved it. We had the best time getting ready in the gorgeous bridal suite the day of the wedding and the guys had a great time getting ready in the man cave as well. There is so much space for everyone that you have plenty of room for all the people coming in and out all day. Having everyone getting ready in one place made the whole day less stressful and when it was time to take our photos, we all loaded up on the bus and left, so easy! We had both our ceremony and reception there too and all our guests raved about how beautiful everything was! This is just an incredible and fun venue that has so many amenities you won’t find anywhere else! Thank you guys SO much for everything. You helped make our wedding day perfect in every way and we are so grateful to you both!Sent on 07/05/2015

Working with 28 Event Space was a great experience and I couldn't imagine having my wedding anywhere else! The space is beautiful and very spacious. The package additions with transportation, photo booth, and the conjoined sleeping rooms made it very reasonable and convenient as well. Maura & Renee were great during the planning process. They are very responsive and organized, making sure they know every detail so that they can set everything up perfectly. My mind was at ease knowing that they had everything under control. The reception was amazing and everyone is still talking about how beautiful it was! Thank you so much to 28 Event Space for making our special day so memorable!Sent on 05/26/2015

My husband and I were married at 28 Event Space in downtown Kansas City. This event space was literally a dream come true! On the day of the wedding, my bridesmaids and I had the best time getting ready in the spacious, well decorated and functional bridal suite. I cant wait to see the getting ready pictures! The guys enjoyed relaxing and hanging out in the man cave before the ceremony also. When it was "GO TIME" the event coordinators Renee and Maura took the lead and made sure that the ceremony flowed perfectly! After the ceremony, the event staff pulled the curtains and did a quick, 45 minute, room flip while our guests enjoyed a few cocktails.The reception was nothing short of amazing between the music, bartenders, photobooth...I couldn't have asked for anything more! I would recommend this venue to ANYONE!!Sent on 11/23/2014

Our experience with 28 Event Space was fabulous!! Renee and Maura were so easy to work with, they took the time to sit down with us and go over every detail! We had our ceremony and reception at 28 Event Space and all of our guests raved about how smooth the Room Flip was for the reception and they loved the cocktail hour to get ready to kick off the Live Band! Absolutely hands down, we are so happy we chose 28 Event Space! We highly recommend them - but book early because space is limited! We ended up having a Friday evening wedding, and so happy we did because we were able to utilize the loft space on Thursday and Friday which was perfect for our bridal party coming in from out of the Country!Sent on 09/28/2014

28 Event Space was perfect for our reception! Maura and Renee were great to work with. They were quick with communication and always helpful with any questions we had. They were always accommodating when we wanted to come in and take a look at the space to get better ideas for the day of the wedding. These ladies worked really well with our vendors and left us nothing to worry about. During the reception, Maura was wonderful with letting us know of any needs throughout. And I haven't even mentioned how amazing the feel is in the space! The lights and mural are the perfect touch to any other details you want to add. We loved our experience here and will recommend it to anyone and everyone!Sent on 07/29/2014

28 Event Space was beyond amazing!! Maura and Renee were so helpful with every detail of our big day!! They kept in contact throughout the whole planning process and allowed us to visit several times! I absolutely loved everything 28 had to offer. I highly recommend getting married on a Friday!! :) I was able to get the venue Thursday night and stayed in the suite.(REALLY REALLY recommend as well) My bridesmaid and maid of honor stayed with me while the groomsmen and best man stayed with the groom in his suite. Maura and Renee went out of their way to help with whatever anyone needed! Maura even helped to bustle my dress for the reception. There are several different packages to pick from which was very nice to have a pick from what we wanted. LOVED IT!!Sent on 09/03/2014

Such an INCREDIBLE wedding venue! The space is absolutely beautiful and they are so great to work with. We had about 300 people at our wedding and it was the perfect size for our reception. It was great to have both indoor and outdoor seating for our guests to enjoy since it was a nice evening out. The event coordinators, Renee and Maura, are so easy to work with and were A LOT of help the day of the wedding. They work so hard to make sure everything falls into place perfectly. We couldn't have picked a better wedding reception venue in Kansas city!Sent on 06/25/2014

The venue was a gorgeous and worked out perfect to host both our ceremony and reception there. The Bridal Suite is a must-have - it worked out great for our wedding party to hang out there during the day of the event.
The event planners - Maura and Renee - worked with us on everything and answered all of our questions throughout the planning process, leading up to the big day. I would highly recommend going through them for event coordination!
Our friends and family are still talking about what a blast they had at the event and how amazing the venue was.
I would recommend this space to anyone looking for a fun and contemporary event space!

This space was perfect for my husband and I. We wanted something larger, urban, and near downtown that would require limited decorating. The space is so beautiful we only felt a need to provide centerpieces to complete the look we were going for - which made for easy planning! The fact that they allow outside food & liquor was another BIG winning feature of the facility. We were able to plan every detail as we wanted rather than as the venue suggested like at some other venues. Maura and Renee are both super nice and easy to work with. We highly recommend this space to anyone wanting to throw a great bash!Sent on 10/14/2013

28 Event space was the perfect location for our reception. My husband and I did not want your typical ballroom reception and 28 Event Space was exactly what we were looking for. We loved the urban feel, location, big bulb lights and lanterns in the main ballroom and ALL the amenities 28 Event Space had to offer. Myself and all my bridesmaids used the bridal suite the morning of to get ready, which was so convenient! Then after the reception, my husband and I spent the night there. We also loved the fact that you could bring in your own alcohol and caterers, this helped save soooo much money. Many venues require you to use their own food and alcohol packages which cost a fortune. Maura and Renee were so great to work with, from wedding planning to the big day they were extremely helpful. Renee's event experience and support the day before and the day of the wedding was invaluable and the whole day was seamless. I loved that I didn't have to worry about a thing. The venue is breathtakig and the experience was incredible. I would highly recommend 28 Event Space to any couple looking for a beautiful and unique venue you can't find anywhere else in Kansas City!!! Sincerely, Alex & Nicole DSent on 11/04/2013

28 Event was a great place to get married!! Renee and Maura were both very helpful in planning our wedding, they were flexible, friendly, and gave us some great ideas! The wedding was beautiful, I would definitely rent out the Bridal Suite and the Cave. It was a great place to get ready and hang out with everyone before the wedding. 28 Event is very flexible and understanding, it's nice that you can bring in your own booze and caterers and they don't rush you out at the end of the night. We hired Renee to be the day of coordinator and she was awesome, she made sure everything was running smooth and on time and checked on me throughout the day to see if we needed anything. Would recommend this to anyone getting married soon. :)Sent on 11/13/2013

The lights are beautiful and we didn't have to do much decorating since the space is already so pretty. Maura was very helpful and easy to work with. They provided bartenders for us and we were able to use their sound system to do our music ourselves. Great dance space. We were also able to bring in our own caterer.
