About the Vox


Today, many of the space’s original architectural features have been preserved, including the full antique, pressed tin ceiling, portions of the balcony and projection room and authentic stage valence complete with theatre lighting and velvet curtains.

In 2009, full interior renovations were completed. We’ve added additional amenities for your comfort and enjoyment including a raised stage, full stereo system with multiple iPod hook-ups, 1,000 sq. ft dance floor, prep kitchen, host lounge and a gorgeous, all glass front facade. The Vox event space is fully ADA accessible, so all your guests can share in your special event. The Vox Theatre is over 5,500 square feet with a 20 foot high ceiling. This impressive space is completely open, offering incredible, uninterrupted sight-lines, and allowing creative flexibility in how you arrange your event. The Vox can host gatherings up to 300 people, making it perfect for larger events, and yet a comfortable and intimate setting can be arranged for smaller gatherings with fewer than 100 guests. You and your guests will enjoy the 1,500 square foot outdoor lawn and patio area, accessed from the main event space through a set of beautiful glass patio doors.

Our full-time Event Manager will work with you to coordinate your event and ensure a perfect day. Centrally located within the greater Kansas City Metro area, The Vox is conveniently situated just blocks from I-35 and just a short distance from downtown Kansas City’s Power & Light District, Westport’s Entertainment District, and the Country Club Plaza. Also within 15 minutes of Shawnee, Lenexa, Overland Park, Waldo, Hospital Hill, North Kansas City, and Kansas City, KS.

Testimonials


“When my now husband and I first stepped into the Vox, we immediately fell in love with it. Everything from the bistro lights, to the red curtains and the wonderful patio were just right on point. Bailey and her team were wonderful to work with and so very helpful. We had both our ceremony and reception at the Vox, which worked out perfectly. We booked the bridal suite to get ready in and it was sooooo worth it. It was so nice to have the whole day (starting at 10 am) to be able to get ready while the vendors had the whole day to set up. There is also a separate loft area for the groom and groom’s party to get ready in. There are two attendants available during your event for anything you may need. They also have a special outlet for a DJ booth to avoid accidentally blowing any circuits and the restrooms are clean and well taken care of. They have a small patio out back and even though our wedding was in October, the weather was perfect to gather and spend time outside. This venue is definitely a gem in the middle of the city!” – Alexis P.

This is a HUGE money saver for your event. We allow you to bring in the alcohol for your event or work with your caterer to do so. You can bring in keg beer or serve a signature cocktail – that choice is entirely up to you. One of the biggest bills for most weddings is the bar, and we do everything possible to save you money there.

We do require that all bartenders must be provided by a professional, licensed and insured bartending service for every event serving alcohol so that your guests can have a safe and responsible evening, and we can provide affordable recommendations for bartending services that work with us every week.
