The Rockhill Event Space is a beautiful urban event space, located in the Kansas City Crossroads Arts District, featuring open air sliding garage doors with stunning views of the downtown skyline. The Reserve Event Space is located at the corner of 20th and Grand, just above The Rockhill Grille.

With two floors of private event space, the venue is ideal for corporate events, meetings, happy hours, rehearsal dinners, wedding ceremonies and receptions. The Reserve can host your smaller event of 20 guests or larger celebrations of 200 guests.


“What a wonderful experience having our wedding on the second floor of The Reserve Event Space, above the Rockhill Grille. Alexis Miller guided us through the process of planning the evening and selecting the menu. She was a joy to work with and everyone loved the food. We went with many, many appetizers. They were all amazing, but we should have ordered more grilled cheese & tomato soup; also the crab cakes.:) John Burdick is quite the mixologist! He worked with us to create 3 specialty cocktails. They were all popular, but I’m pretty partial to the “Mrs. Whiting”. It was clearly the crowd favorite! And John handed one to me as soon as I stepped off the elevator! The k.c. skyline outside the large garage door windows was the perfect backdrop for the evening. We held our ceremony and reception in the same space. We decorated the doorway with curtains, eucalyptus and fairy lights during the vows, then opened them to the other side where the 2nd bar was. They provided the tablecloths and I had 4 square cakes for centerpieces on the larger round tables. We had several bar top tables with sugar cookies on them. We had plenty of room for an acoustic band and dancing. The entire staff worked hard to seamlessly keep the event going so we could focus on our wedding and our guests. We could not be happier how everything turned out! We would highly recommend The Reserve for your event!”

“We hosted a dinner for 58 on the second floor and loved it. Abby and her team were flawless from start to finish - professional, responsive, and fun to work with. The food was excellent and the venue is like none other in KC. They went above and beyond to make our event special, and we can’t wait for another excuse to book The Reserve for our next event.”

“We rented the third floor for a 50th birthday party and had such a great time. We had a lot of compliments on the venue and the food, can’t beat the city skyline at night. Both Alexis and Abby were of great help and even was able to switch us from 2nd floor to 3rd floor the week before the party due to the increase of size. We had multiple site visits to make sure our AV and setup needs were met and they were very kind to accommodate us in our time and requests. We definitely would recommend them to anybody who asks. Catering tip: The pig wings were the big hit of the night!”

“We had our son’s wedding rehearsal at this beautiful event space. We couldn’t have been happier with the top notch service and the food was outstanding. We wanted to find a place that would make this experience the most special for our bride and groom and we were very pleased. We had numerous compliments on the space and how good the food is here. A big thank you to Alexis for helping with planning and details of our event. I highly recommend The Reserve Event Space for any upcoming gathering or party you are planning if you want attention to every detail to make your evening the best experience.”

“Everything about our luncheon meeting on June 15 was handled very professionally. The food was excellent and the room was set up well to accommodate our 50+ attendees. Abby made the arrangements flow so well that our group will definitely be back for another event in the future. Kudos to Abby and her staff on a job well done.”

“My event hasn’t even taken place yet and I am already SO pleased with their services. Knowing the urgency of the situation I found myself in, the Events Management ladies went above and beyond to get me a quick response, and an even quicker follow up. Feeling very secure in the space we’ve selected, and I’ve never even been there!”

”Great location on the south side of downtown. Large garage door “windows” in this second floor venue open to view the downtown Kansas City skyline, great for picture taking! Food was exceptional with a nice menu to choose from. Staff was courteous and attentive, and the bartender very friendly. We could not have picked a better venue for our rehearsal dinner. The room was the perfect size for our party of 24, but could accommodate up to 50. We highly recommend The Reserve for this type of event.”
