Book Your Wedding with 28 Event Space
A BALLROOM IN KANSAS CITY, MO
Located in Kansas City, Missouri, just 35 minutes from downtown, 28 Event Space is a premier location for wedding ceremonies and receptions. With an impressive overall size of 7,500 square feet, there is plenty of room for elaborate celebrations. This venue was originally a warehouse, but it has been completely remodeled. The atmosphere is clean and modern with touches of vintage charm. There are two main event spaces available along with areas for the wedding party to prepare for the ceremony.
The Kansas City Room is the largest room in this facility. It's ideal for large wedding parties of 300 or more guests and comes equipped with a dance floor and a stage for those who want live entertainment at their reception.

Hundreds of small twinkling lights line the ceiling, creating a whimsical look.
The Station is another reception room, and it's smaller than the Kansas City room. It's lushly appointed and features floor-to-ceiling windows that allow natural light to stream in. Guests can directly access an outdoor terrace from this room. This space can comfortably seat up to 200 guests.
Located just off of the Kansas City Room is The Vanity Room. This room is commonly used as a bridal suite and serves as the ideal place for a bride and her party to get ready for the big day. It features a large, well-lit vanity that's ideal for styling hair and applying makeup.

When we got engaged, top of my list was 28 Event Space. I loved the urban setting, but yet still extremely classy. However, because they are so popular, they only had Friday availability left. We didn’t want a long engagement and after meeting with Karly, we decided on a Friday wedding because of the availability. There are many perks to a Friday wedding at 28 Event Space – the biggest and most helpful was having Thursday access to the venue. The all-inclusive price included Friday night in the lofts, but a Friday wedding included an extra night (Thurs). It kept my mind at ease knowing we had a full day for set-up and to get acquainted with the space. We had our ceremony at a church near by, but a room flip would have been great in the space too. All our vendors had experience working at and with 28 Event Space and there was a sense of familiarity for them when we would go over the details of our day. There was only one snafu and it was that we had a couple of different coordinators in our 9 months. Karly was a constant so that helped, and for our day-of, we worked with Courtney. Courtney was AWESOME to work with. She was new-ish on our wedding day but Karly being there was super helpful and kept me at ease. Courtney has a great energy and enthusiasm about her….just what we needed nearing the end of our engagement! On the day-of, we spent it getting ready in the suites. It was so helpful literally being in the next room as our vendors. It was great having a front-row seat to seeing the magic happen. Being type-A, it was great to just have my hands in everything! Everything and everyone that was part of 28 Event Space was highly personable, approachable and patient (perfect for brides to deal with!). We used one of the suites during the reception as a “Child’s Suite” and had a babysitter come in and watch the young kiddos as their parents had fun on the dance floor. My parents and in-laws were extremely impressed at the ease of having it in that location! So many things I didn’t have to tend to because of 28 Event Space: accommodations for the night before/night-of, shuttle services for our guests, party bus for the bridal party, a place to get ready (the vanity is picture-perfect) and so much more. Parking was great for the guests and the space was so open that no matter where anyone sat, they were able to see everything! We used the stage for our cake cutting and it was great to look out into the crowd and see our reception in front of us. 28 Event Space is a one-stop shop for a great wedding.
What a wonderful venue this is! We had our wedding reception here on October 21st 2017. We had actually originally toured 28 event space’s KC room before The Station space had even been built but this is when we learned about it. We were only planning on having 75-100 wedding guests so the KC room was going to be a bit too large for our needs. The Station being a smaller space, was more accommodating to the smaller wedding guest count. Now since we got word of this new event space before it was built, they were not quite accepting deposits for dates at that time. Once we were alerted to put our money down, there were a few hiccups but nothing to really mention now since everything worked out in the end AND you always have to expect with a new event space there are going to be a few things to sort out in the beginning. We didn’t really have an assigned main point of contact (as far as I know) leading up to the big day which seemed like maybe a downfall but honestly it was never an issue because any questions we had you could send in through the online portal and get a fairly quick response. I think the majority of the responses came from Karly and she was always extremely helpful. We decided to do the largest package with The Station which included, but not limited to, two overnight suites (takes care of 2 hotel rooms!), linens (even ones in my color theme), tables/chairs, bartenders, parking lot attendants, the limo/party bus for 4hrs-ish, photo booth, car racing game, pool table, day of coordinator... I am sure I am forgetting something- We had to find our own DJ, caterers, photographer and liquor provider but this was nothing considering all that was involved with the venue itself. We had a meeting with Courtney about a month before and she took very detailed notes about our wants and needs for the day of- made us feel very confident for the upcoming big day! Fast forward- wedding day we ended up getting Courtney for our day of coordinator and she was fantastic! The scheduled bartender ended up not being able to come in, so Courtney manned the bar! And if there was anything that went wrong throughout the evening, we had no idea- she really was wonderful. (we had many compliments from our guests as well about her!) I highly recommend this venue space regardless of if you pick the KC room or The Station. We had the best time and would do it all over again if we could!
I can't say enough about 28 Event Space! We had our wedding there in June of this year and were so happy with the choice we made! The girls we worked with were always quick to respond and answered any questions we had leading up to the wedding and on the day of the event they made sure everything went smoothly and we had any/everything we needed. We would highly recommend 28 Event Space!
Just had my wedding here and I got so many compliments on how wonderful and beautiful the venue is. The staff is so helpful and will do anything to make sure the day runs smoothly. Great experience.
This venue was absolutely amazing! We could not ask for a more beautiful place or more helpful/flexible staff. Communication was great and very straight forward. This is a perfect place to have your special day!! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
We held both our wedding and reception in The Station at 28 Event Space. The event space was beautiful for both events and the staff was very easy to work with. We loved everything they included in the price for the space and it was really nice to be able to choose all our own vendors.
I would NOT recommend this venue to my family or friends. While this space is absolutely beautiful the coordinator we had on our wedding day was extremely rude and disrespectful to my Mom, My husband and I ( the bride and groom) as well as our family that was helping us the day of the wedding. Completely unacceptable actions by the staff and unprofessional. I would hate for another Bride to have to experience the unprofessionalism and disrespect that we encountered.
Didn't even go to see it because the woman was so hard to work with. We scheduled an appointment for a Saturday at 1:30 and she emailed me the day before saying "are we on today for noon?" I responded with no we said Saturday at 1:30 and she said no I have you today for 1:30 (already changed time in one email?). I then forwarded the email and she was not helpful and didn't attempt to make another appointment. Lost our business
They were so accommodating all day! So great to work with and really made the day stress free!
28 Event Space was amazing for wedding. They helped with every detail and their packages were great to ensure that we could get everything we need from one place. While upfront, the cost sounds like a lot, I was able to save so much money because of everything that our package came with and because I was able to use food and beverage vendors from elsewhere. Courtney and Karly both did an awesome job with coordinations and the wedding went off without a hitch! - Sarah
This venue was my dream venue. The location was perfect, central in the city. There was ample parking for a city location and the staff was incredible. You get some many extras with 28 Event Space, including security, parking attendants, bar tenders, plenty of restrooms and of course, day of coordination. I LOVED that the venue provided so many decor & set up items and that it was beautifully decorated so I didn't feel like I had to spend a bunch of money on making the place look presentable. They are very organized, kind, and helpful, from the moment we contacted them for a tour Karly and her team set us as ease. You won't be disappointed if you book with 28 Event Space.
I am not booking the 28 Event Space for my event. While it is a beautiful venue with a pretty good location downtown, it is overpriced compared to similar spaces with similar amenities. The reason I felt compelled to write a review is when I contacted the space to request pricing information and to ensure the date I needed was available, Courtney (28 Event Space Coordinator as of May 2017), responded by emailing two prospective customers at the same time and failing to bcc us. The other customer and myself then went through a week of irritating miscommunication before we realized neither of the other was the coordinator (Courtney did not respond to emails within days of receiving them to clear this up). She then did not apologize or even acknowledge that she had made an error. I could have gotten over that initial communication error if when I finally was able to schedule a time to tour the space, Courtney had taken the time to re-confirm that the date I needed was available. Instead, I made a special trip to see the space only to arrive (and wait for her to show up for another 10 minutes), for her to tell me the date I requested wasn't available. Are you kidding me!? How difficult is it to re-confirm a date prior to making a prospective customer waste their time?! In summary, the space is pretty. There are better investments scattered through the city, and beware Courtney's planning abilities.
This venue was the most amazing place to have our wedding! Not only does it look amazing on its own, so there isn't need for a huge amount of decoration, the people who work there are incredible! I felt like all my millions of questions as a bride were answered with a friendly response and quickly. hey went above and beyond all my expectations and even ran an important errand for the wedding party the day of when a two year old needed pull-ups! I cannot say enough great things about this venue and if you are lucky to get a date there you will be in great hands and your wedding will be amazing! We did reserve the back room and it was the perfect place to get ready and have our hair and makeup done as well.
Courtney was amazing!! She was so easy to work with and so helpful! It was great to bring in our own alcohol and food in, and the bridal suite was great for my husband and I to stay the night! We were even able to use a limo for after the reception to drive around while everyone left. Overall my wedding was picture perfect and a lot was thanks to Courtney and the 28 event space.
Amazing space and perfect size for our reception! The people we worked with were great and the extra amenities were well worth it!!!
Words cannot describe how amazing our wedding day was because of 28 event space! I can't thank their coordinators, Courtney and Karly for helping out with every little detail! Courtney and Karly were so simple and easy to work with! They went above and beyond to make our wedding day so special. The event space itself was breathtaking! Lights on the ceiling and kc skyline on the back wall! This place is a must! It is so clean and the bridal room was spacious and bright! I can't thank them again for making our day so special!
28 Event Space was absolutely wonderful. The space itself is gorgeous but the staff takes everything to the next level. We were so impressed with the help and dedication they have to making your event exactly what you need. I cannot thank them enough for making our wedding so perfect!
28 Event Space, The Station, Karly & her staff were so great & accommodating. We were extremely happy with the venue and its many offerings. It was beautiful, our guests loved it- many compliments! Its an awesome KC venue from ambiance, sound, bar, lighting... all were amazing. Thank you! Highly Recommend this amazing venue & staff .
Everything was beautiful and everyone who helped from 28 Event Space was on top of their game! I didn't have to worry about a thing during the wedding and reception. Fantastic!
We had our wedding at 28 event space new venue called The Station. We were the very first wedding in the space. It was amazing! The staff was great, Sylvia handled all the details like a pro. The space was so beautiful and perfect for our wedding. Literally the coolest photo booth I have ever seen, and beautiful finishes. We couldn't have asked for a better venue.
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 that this was the best wedding they have ever been to and I think that the venue had a huge part in that!
I cannot say enough good things about 28 Event Space! Karly and Sylvia are simply amazing! They answered every crazy question I had and smiled through every change I made, even up to the last minute, and made me feel like they were genuinely happy to help. Our wedding went off without a hitch and we could not have done it without 28 Event Space and specifically Karly and Sylvia. The venue is also BEAUTIFUL. We received SO many compliments on the venue and the staff. Book this venue - you will not regret it!
We did not end up going with this venue only because they didn't have our date available. But the girls here are so professional, helpful, and responsive, the best we have come in contact with. The KC Room is beautiful and spacious. Loved it all!
Karly was so great to work with. Our day went so smoothly without any hiccups or issues and we could not be happier about it! The venue is absolutely gorgeous and needed very little decoration from us because it was already perfect! It was a nice low to mid 80s that day and they opened the garage doors the whole night to help give our wedding the summer night feel that we dreamed of. The only little blip with the venue would have been the photobooth. Unless you held really still for a few seconds after the photos were taken, they came out blurry. But otherwise, everything was great, the rooms were amazing and allowed us to stay and keep a small party going with our wedding party after. Couldn't say enough great things about this venue!
My bride and I went to multiple venues and bridal shows looking for a possible and an affordable place for our wedding, and I can honestly say there is no place in KC that compares to 28 Event Space. We fell in love with it not only because of the modern look and ample space, but because the staff was so accommodating and helpful from the day we booked the event space until the very last minute of our wedding. Thank you 28 Event Space!!
