About Events with The Levee
Thank you for considering The Levee as a place to celebrate your special event.
You’ll soon find we offer a unique place to gather with friends and family. Our warm and welcoming party rooms create a casual atmosphere for celebration, a good choice if you’re looking for an escape from other more traditional banquet halls. We can provide beer, wine, and cocktails, as well as appetizer buffets for groups of 10 to 300! When you’re hosting an after work gathering, corporate event, special birthday, or holiday celebration, The Levee will simplify planning a successful and memorable event.
The Carriage House
A Brief History; Located next to The Levee in a century old home, The Carriage House is our premier private event space. Originally built by prominent land owner Hugh Ward around 1899, the building was originally used to house those who worked in Ward’s stables that were located just north of the property. Ward and his developer JC Nichols are responsible for many of Kansas City’s prominent landmarks such as Mission Hills, The Country Club Plaza, and of course Ward Parkway which Nichols named in honor of Ward, who died shortly before his fiftieth birthday.
Inside there’s seating for sixty (100 max), as well as a large, secluded outdoor patio that can hold another seventy-five people. Add it all up and you’ll find that the space can accommodate events of up to 150 people, in season. The room features a fully stocked, full-service bar staffed by one of our professional bartenders, flat-screen HDTV, sound system with IPOD/MP3 jack, buffet area, separate entrance, and two private restrooms.
The Back Room
Located on the middle level, The Levee’s Back Room is perfectly situated just steps away from the live music on the main floor, and the upstairs sports bar. In addition to the interior space, the Back Room includes a large patio area that is particularly popular in season.
The space features a fully stocked, full service bar staffed by one of our professional bartenders, as well as a 50” HDTV, and sound system with Ipod/MP3 jack. Inside there’s seating for 50 people (80 max), and the patio seats 30 people (60 max). A portion of the nearly 20’ long bar can be used as a buffet area while still providing ample space for filling your guests beverage orders. Room charges vary by date and type of event.
The West Room
Through a set of french doors on the second floor you’ll find The West Room. The large picture windows provide great views of The Carriage House, Embassy Suites and St. Lukes, and can be raised (in season) for a unique open air feel.
The room features several HDTV’s and seating for 40 people (65 Max.). This is a great space for those who want a private room but still want to be close to all of the action going on Upstairs.
