This is such a hidden gem in the KC area. The location is prime and the décor is awesome. The best part, you can bring your own food and alcohol. Roxanne is so great to work with and always there to answer questions. If you're looking for a venue north of the river, this is... Read More place. Thank you to the Black on Burlington team for making my wedding so great!

Roxanne was amazing all the way through the process. There was a huge misunderstanding with the linens 2 days before the wedding. Our colors were Royal Blue and Violet. However, the linen company called a lavender shade “Violet”. When I saw the linens together and they confirmed... Read More they were for our wedding, I flipped! They were HORRIBLE together. I hated to be “that bride”, but I had to be. Roxanne and I argued back and forth about whose fault it was and how much it was going to cost her to fix the problem. I finally said, “I don’t care how much it cost you to fix the problem, but this purple will NOT be at my wedding” and requested the correct shade of purple. What upset me was that she told me the whole office was saying how ugly the colors were together, but no one called me or texted me a picture. Nothing. I would have been glad to go down to there to make sure everything was perfect. I left feeling very uneasy. The day came and the linens were beautiful. The only problem the day of was that there was an entire row of tables at the back that weren’t supposed to be there. We had decided not to have them because we didn’t have as many RSVP as we thought we would. So the day of, it looked like we had a lot of people not show up, but in reality, there were 32 seats that weren’t supposed to be there. Roxanne helped throw in some decorations she had to go with our theme and let us take pictures on the rooftop. Overall, not too bad, but the linens and tables were a big deal to me which is why I didn’t leave a 5 star review.

I can not say enough good things about Roxanne and her entire team at Black on Burlington! They were so wonderful to work with. We had both our ceremony and our reception at this venue and we were so pleased. The space itself is very modern, with exposed brick walls, metal... Read More sliding doors by the bar, and exposed beam ceilings. I received so many compliments from our guests about what a neat space we had chosen, and how friendly and accommodating the entire staff were. They do have a DJ they contract with exclusively (Platinum Productions - reviewed separately), but we really liked them, and felt that this was a benefit, not a drawback. They also have their own in-house catering company (Above and Beyond Catering - also reviewed separately), but this is a choice, not a requirement. I was fortunate to work with Roxanne directly for almost everything, and I have so say, she was absolutely wonderful. She was flexible and easy going, she was helpful in the entire planning process, and she allowed me access to the space any time I needed it, which was a lot in my estimation. She was also very responsive to all my texts and emails, even late in the evening sometimes, when I didn't expect to hear from her until the next day. On top of all the wonderful service, this place is a bargain compared to many that we looked at. It wasn't the cheapest, but since they let you shop caterers, this gave us an opportunity to save some money where you typically end up spending the most. Also, Roxanne gives you access to all their decorations to use as you need, so this saved us a TON of money on decorations, as we only had to supplement any extras we wanted: colored candles and flowers as desired. I'm sure there is so much more I could say about the wonderful experience we had working with Black on Burlington, but my best advice is simply meet with her and see for yourself. You'll be as impressed as I was from from the first meeting to the final clean up.

Hidden Gem with Great Features

If you're looking for a venue that includes the necessities yet provides flexibility Black on Burlington is your go to choice. Our top priorities for a reception venue was that we could provide our own alcohol and choose our caterer. Not only was these options included but... Read More Black on Burlington also provides, set-ups, and takes-down the chairs, tables, and linens. Another fantastic feature was if nothing is booked the day before or after they allow you to begin decorating a day or 2 beforehand as well as gather all of your belongings the next day. This is a must in my opinion as the day goes by so fast that is the last thing you need to worry about on your wedding day. We were very satisfied with the bartenders and security that we hired through B.O.B along with the day of event staff to ensure our reception went off without a hitch. Oh and lastly, all of our guest loved the event space and are still talking about it a month later! :)

This was the perfect venue for our old-school Hollywood/1940s style wedding. The exposed brick walls & old metal doors give it this incredible vibe. Tina is wonderful & makes the best food.

Roxanne and team did a wonderful job for our wedding reception! She was available for multiple meetings before the event to make sure all of our questions and concerns were addressed. Roxanne used her past experiences to help make our day run smoothly. She gave advice on... Read More layouts, centerpieces and lighting and if there is not an event the night before you are allowed to get in and get everything set up. We arrived at the space at 8am on the Saturday of our wedding and the staff had all of the tables set up in the agreed upon layout and ready for us to add our centerpices and decorations. We were allowed to bring in our own catering and alcohol which helped us stay within our wedding budget. The bar area looked absolutely stunning once we had all the candles lit and the bar stocked. Overall, it was a great venue and I definitely recommend checking it out! Thanks Roxanne & Team! :)
