Abbott Events was created with the vision of transforming neglected buildings into vibrant & unique event spaces that would mesh seamlessly with the artistic and creative culture of the neighborhoods the venues reside in. That vision has been transformed into reality. We started with an abandoned warehouse in 2017 and brought it back to life as The Abbott. The Abbott, which is located in the heart of the East Crossroads, was just voted Kansas City’s best wedding reception venue of 2021. The transformation & success of The Abbott only strengthened our vision.
In 2019, we unveiled The Harlow. Located off Grand Blvd. and originally a two-story car dealership, The Harlow still has every ounce of original character with exposed brick, a car-sized elevator, and a view down Grand Blvd. unlike any other.
At the beginning of 2020, we hosted the inaugural event at our most ambitious venue yet, The Bardot. This once abandoned four-story building is now a recognizable jewel on Grand Blvd. and offers a fully equipped rooftop bar overlooking downtown Kansas City.
Seeing our Kansas City vision turn into reality is a joy beyond words, but it isn’t the most rewarding aspect of our journey. That recognition belongs to YOU. To the community. To the people who choose to include us in their celebrations. Moments that will be remembered for a lifetime. That trust and inclusion is a reward far too great to put into words. And because of you, we’ve decided to share our vision outside of Kansas City. The Winslet located in Wichita, KS is slated to open in 2022! We could not be more excited to continue celebrating with each and every one of you.
From our Founders
Kansas City holds a special place in our hearts. We were married here and have always been drawn to the energy of this city.
We are both honored and proud to share Abbott Events with you. We’ve created Kansas City’s premiere venues for weddings and corporate events for one simple reason: we want you to feel as much togetherness and purpose within these walls as we feel within this city, specifically the Crossroads Arts District.
In our properties and our personal home, we’ve always loved to entertain, and we’ve brought that vision and enthusiasm to Abbott Events. So, share. Celebrate. We hope you love it here.
Every event is special and different in its own way. To our team, it's more than an event, it's a celebration of the people who are gathered together. And we are here to celebrate alongside you as your friend. You’re more than just one day. You’re more than just a date on a calendar.
We build relationships to last
We live our passion
We are a family. Abbott Events is comprised of much more than just our venues. It's our team. It’s the experience from start to finish. It's the peace of mind we provide knowing we'll do everything in our power to make your dream event a reality. We take pride in what we do, your happiness is our success.
We exceed expectations
We disrupt the standard
Each design choice in our venues have a purpose. That purpose goes beyond the obvious aesthetics. This careful planning is built into the core of the entire experience with us. We are not only committed to providing you with a unique and gorgeous venue, but we're committed to being by your side when you need us every step of your journey
The world is ever-evolving, and so are your needs. We understand the importance of adaptability. But beyond our ability to adapt alongside your needs, it's our promise to you that we will be uncompromising in providing you with the special moments you'll remember for a lifetime.
