The Guild consists of 20,000 sq. ft. of indoor and outdoor areas, including a large open ballroom and private urban garden.
The event venue radiates a distinct vintage charm. Notable features include exposed hangar ceilings, floor to ceiling subway tile, a unique bar, family-style tables constructed from reclaimed timber and salvaged architectural design elements, including a 12 ft. chandelier from the 1930s.
The Guild was created with the intention of channeling like-minded creatives and encouraging collaboration and partnerships across artisan trades. Much like the guilds of past eras, the space was designed to be a hub of creativity and a place for local artists, musicians and builders to gather, work and play. The two buildings that make up The Guild are located in the Kansas City Creative Crossroads district on 1621 Locust Street. The understated, yet eclectic area is home to artists of all types. Dozens of galleries, studios, restaurants and bars contribute to a bohemian, fun and inspired neighborhood energy.
The event space was specifically designed to accommodate live musicians, and a scalable dance floor.
The event venue is next door to a cross-disciplinary creative studio, which is home to directors/photographers The Wade Brothers and digital artist Judy Rush. The studio features private offices and large shooting areas. The studio is fully functional during business hours, yet often doubles as additional space for event staging, production support, green rooms or private receptions.
A breath of fresh air in the middle of the city, the private outdoor green space can be used for picnics, garden ceremonies and more.
