It could be argued that your wedding day will be the most important day of your life. Sure, there are competitors — the day you graduate from college, the day you have your first child, the day you can finally retire, etc. But when else do you get to don a white dress or a tux and quite literally be the center of attention for an entire day? No matter which way you look at it, your wedding reception in Kansas City will be a day to remember.
We know that the wedding itself is important, but at The Lounge, we like to think that the real fun begins when you take it back to your reception venue in Kansas City. While you may have stressed about other parts of the day, your wedding reception should be nothing but a blast — and at The Lounge, we’re here to help ensure that nothing gets in the way of the party.
Here’s what you can expect when you choose The Lounge as the backdrop for one of the most special nights of your life:
Classic Prohibition Speakeasy-Inspired Decor
We modeled The Lounge to be reminiscent of a speakeasy. Think luxurious red velvet, custom-made wooden bookshelves housing leather-bound volumes, brick walls, and candlelight. Our space feels both exclusive and intimate, and you’d never know the hustle and bustle of the Country Club Plaza is just above your heads. Because we’ve curated The Lounge to be such a gorgeous Kansas City wedding reception venue, you don’t have to do any of the decorating on your own, although you are certainly more than welcome to do so if you wish. We’ll work with you to ensure the room is set up exactly how you want it for your big day.
The Perfect Location for Iconic Wedding Photography
You’re going to want to remember your wedding day forever, and your wedding photos will be something you and your new spouse can look back on for years to come. As any photographer will tell you, a good location is key. Lucky for you, The Lounge is right in the middle of one of the most beautiful neighborhoods in Kansas City. Take your wedding party around the iconic Country Club Plaza, and then come back to take some photos with us! The romantic lighting will be exactly what your wedding photographer needs to capture those intimate, just-married moments.
An All-Inclusive Wedding Venue
You’re welcome to use The Lounge specifically as a reception hall in Kansas City, but don’t forget that you can have your wedding here, too! We can work with you to determine the perfect layout for both events and help to ensure seamless transition from ceremony to party.
An Intimate, Cozy Experience
The Lounge can comfortably fit up to 80 guests, which makes us perfect for a small reception venue in Kansas City. If you’ve chosen to get married amongst your closest friends and family and wish to keep your ceremony small and intimate, The Lounge is the perfect place.
Eat, Drink and Be Merry!
Located underneath Parkway Social Kitchen, The Lounge offers that same Parkway menu that has so quickly risen to the top of the Kansas City food scene. With upscale twists on classic comfort foods (our pepper jack-stuffed tater tots are a cult favorite), you’ll have a no-nonsense wedding menu that focuses more on the quality of food itself than fancy frivolities. And that’s not to mention our artfully crafted cocktails, which will fuel the evening for hours after mealtime is over.
You are welcome to have your guests order from the full Parkway menu or choose between several of our food and beverage packages. Speak with a Parkway manager for more information on our options for catering your party.
Dance the Night Away
When it isn’t serving as a premier downtown Kansas City reception venue, The Lounge is perhaps best known for curating live, local music for the public. We typically like to pay homage to Kansas City’s roots with jazz-focused acts, but we dabble in a little bit of everything. If you’d like for us to connect or book one of our local favorites for you, we’re more than happy to do so. If you have a musician or DJ of your own you’d like to bring in for the evening, you are more than welcome to do that as well. And if you want to take a DIY approach and hook up a playlist to our speaker system, that’s perfectly fine with us, too. Let us know what you envision for your evening, and we’ll help you to make it a reality.
