The building’s collection of event spaces, spanning a total of more than 20,000 square feet, includes a 6,000 square foot rooftop. From historic and traditional to modern and unconventional, the versatility in the spaces provides a backdrop for a range of festivities. The meeting and event spaces are illuminated through hand-hewn walnut, carved stone, stained glass, and gilded plaster, preserving their originality from the early 1900s. The former Starlight Restaurant on the 15th floor has been transformed to Kansas City’s only rooftop indoor/outdoor space — complete with spectacular views.
