Located in the Creative Crossroads district of Kansas City, The Guild is a uniquely malleable space suitable for a full range of occasions, including corporate and private parties, weddings, fundraisers and more.
The Guild includes a 6,500 sq. ft. indoor space with a large open ballroom, as well as a private 5,000 sq. ft. urban garden adorned with café lights. A breath of fresh air in the middle of the city, the outdoor green space can be used for picnics, garden ceremonies and more, with parking in abundance nearby.
The interior venue radiates a distinct vintage charm with polished original concrete floors leading to exposed brick walls and 12-foot windows. A 20 ft. hangar ceiling sports a stunning salvaged 12-foot chandelier centerpiece in front of a beautiful custom bar. Floor-to-ceiling subway tiles complement our large family-style tables constructed from reclaimed timber to complete the look.
Rental of the event venue also includes use of the garden space, accessible parking, a prep kitchen and dressing room, tables, chairs and linens, as well as usage of the built-in bar and glassware. Security, bartenders, set-up and break-down services are also included.

Bartenders & gratuity
The Guild provides trained, licensed bartenders. We determine the number of bartenders required for adequate service based on the size of your event. We offer two options in regard to bartender gratuity: if you allow tip jars to be out the evening of your event, you do not owe a fee. If you choose not to allow tip jars, we then charge a 5% gratuity fee based on your bar package total.
Beverage packages are priced per person for guests over 21 years of age. All bar packages include up to 5 hours of service, bar stations, glassware, napkins, ice, mixers and other necessary bar items. We do have a large variety of beer and alcohol options so if you'd like to change or add something please ask the Guild Manager, we'd be happy to accommodate if possible. If you would like to add a champagne toast or specialty cocktail, those items can be priced out for you by our Guild Manager as well. Alcohol from outside sources may not be brought in to the venue.
