Hi, bridesmaid! Your best gal pal has a ring, and you have a new job: throwing the perfect bridal shower. It can feel like a lot. No pressure or anything, but this is a day that she — as well as all of her family members and friends — will remember for the rest of her life. The shower needs to be as special as she is, and we know that’s no easy task. The good news? The Lounge is here to help.
When it comes to planning a bridal shower, it’s vital that you find the perfect bridal shower venue. Your space sets the tone for everything else, and we can’t overstate how important it is that it’s perfectly suited for the activities you have planned for the event. Luckily for you, The Lounge at Parkway is among the best bridal shower venues in Kansas City. We know you have questions, and we have answers. Browse through the following FAQs, and don’t hesitate to contact us at 816-214-5616 if you’d like to learn more about reserving The Lounge as your Kansas City bridal shower venue.
What is The Lounge?
The Lounge is located beneath Parkway Social Kitchen and serves as a bar and lounge for live local musical acts as well as an event space that can be rented for private parties. We’ve got a very specific speakeasy vibe — think red velvet, candlelight, wooden bookshelves with leather-bound books, and brick accent walls — and we’re proud of it. We’ve also got a projector presentation screen, a killer speaker system, a stage for live music or DJs, and a full bar — all which make us an elite bridal shower venue in Kansas City.
How big is The Lounge?
We’re a small event space that can fit up to 80 guests, which is perfect for a bridal shower! If you’re hosting a larger group, our KC bridal shower venue can still accommodate you — contact us for information about expanding the party to our upstairs dining area.
When should I book The Lounge?
You can contact us at any point to learn more about open dates at The Lounge. Typically, it’s recommended that you book a bridal shower venue approximately three months before you need it, and most bridal showers take place about one or two months before the wedding itself.
Does The Lounge offer catering?
We’re glad you asked! The Lounge serves a full menu, which is identical to Parkway Social Kitchen’s. From pepper jack-stuffed tater tots to ahi tuna to Hawaiian Creekstone ribeye, Parkway’s upscale comfort foods have quickly risen to the top of Kansas City’s food scene. Your guests can choose from a full menu, or you can choose to purchase an all-inclusive food package if you’d like to serve appetizers or a full meal. It is also important to note that Parkway and The Lounge offer brunch on Saturdays and Sundays until 3 p.m. Bottomless mimosas, anyone?
Can we decorate The Lounge?
Of course! We like to think that The Lounge is a beautiful KC bridal shower venue with or without decorations, but you are more than welcome to bring in anything you’d like to use for your party. We’re happy to make suggestions about where to put photo stations or hang banners! When planning how to utilize the space for the day, we’d also recommend assigning one of the downstairs booths to double as a gift station!
Does The Lounge have music?
Yes! We would love to connect you with one of our regular local acts if you’d like to book a band for your bridal shower. We’d also welcome the chance to meet new musicians if you have favorites you’d like to bring in. At The Lounge, we know a bridal shower venue isn’t worth its salt if you can’t control the tunes!
Can we play bridal shower games at The Lounge?
Duh! Let us know what games you want to play and how we can help. If necessary, we can move around some of the tables for more open space.
Any other questions? Don’t hesitate to call us at 816-214-5616 or fill out a request form, and we’ll help however we can!
