The Loft

Located upstairs on our beautiful second floor, you’ll find this warm and inviting space makes you feel like you are somewhere in Tuscany.  With large window’s encased in exposed brick, locally reclaimed wood and breathtaking views of the Western Auto building and downtown, The Loft is perfect for any occasion.

The Loft may accommodate 85 guests for a seated event, and up 100+  for receptions.  The Loft also provides a lift for guests who cannot make the stairs as well as private restrooms.

With a reservation in The Loft, the charming herb garden located on the first floor is available to you as well. The hum of the passing trains provides for a wonderfully romantic outdoor venue for a cocktail and appetizer reception.

The Terrazza

Sexy meets sophisticated in  The Terrazza. The gorgeous glass enclosed space boasts a curved roof line and  majestic views of Union Station and downtown. Located on the main floor of our restaurant, the Terrazza may accommodate up to 104 guests with perimeter glass doors that open to give guests an open air feel and an event unmatched by any event space in Kansas City.
