Garment House on Broadway is a multi-level, premier event venue nestled in the historic and upscale Quality Hill district and conveniently located just blocks from I-35 and I-70. Located at 10th and Broadway, and built in 1904, this establishment was the center of activity for several successful textile and garment manufacturers in the 1920s. During that era, the Kansas City Garment District employed 4,000 workers and was second in size only to New York City’s Garment District. One in every seven women in the nation wore clothes manufactured in Kansas City at that time.
In 1977, the building was home to “Mister Guy”, a regional chain of fifteen men’s and women’s classic and traditional clothing stores and is listed on “The National Register of Historic Places”. The first wedding and reception were celebrated on the sixth floor 25 years ago.
The names of our event spaces were inspired by the 1920s’ working-class economy whose dedication and handiwork not only draped the shoulders of women throughout the nation, but also played an integral part in shaping the historical cultural aspect of Kansas City’s Garment District.
Today, you can dance under a dreamy canopy of skylights and lustrous, tiny white lights on our 6th floor and enjoy astonishing panoramic downtown Kansas City skyline views. Create cherished memories of your formal wedding ceremony on 3rd or 5th floors (which offer a two room option for you to host your wedding on one side and your reception on the other). Design a corporate cocktail gathering or wedding reception for up to 300 guests on our 2nd floor that features 13’ ceilings and a 100 year old polished, maple wood floor. Plan an intimate wedding rehearsal dinner, or celebrate a birthday or anniversary with 50-100 of your friends in lower level Garment House which exudes the charm of a New York style jazz club with contemporary lounge styling.
Our team of seasoned event professionals is dedicated to the flawless execution of a meaningful and memorable event for your guests. Let us focus on the on-site details of your event so you can concentrate on what is important to you for your corporate milestone or life celebration.
