The Rumely Event Space is located in Kansas Cityâ€™s 12th Street Bridge district of the historic West Bottoms. Built in the 1880â€™s, the building was once operated by the Advance-Rumely Thresher Company, giving the building its unique name. The Rumely Event space is a product of two years of extensive restoration during which no cost was spared to preserve the history and authenticity of this landmark site. The result is a seamless combination of historic architecture with modern convenience and enduring elegance.
The priceless history of the Rumely Building with its original tin ceiling, wood floor, exposed columns and antique fixtures is joined seamlessly together with all the amenities one would want in a modern venue. The Rumely Event Space evokes a feeling of timelessness gained from itâ€™s rich history and is reminiscent of the industrial boom of the past while maintaining the modern elegance prized today. These unique qualities will enhance your eventâ€™s character and create lifelong memories for you and your guest.
The Rumely has approximately 8,500 sq ft of interior space. Enough for a seated dinner for 400 of your guest but is warm and welcoming for much smaller parties too. It features a secluded bridal chamber and groom suite, both of which have private bathrooms. A massive freight elevator complete with chandeliers feels more like a time machine than a way of ascending to the space. You and your guest will be transported back to a time when opulence and was a way of life; a time when tycoons in horse drawn carriages shared the streets with the cities first automobiles. Itâ€™s an experience you will never forget.
