SURE YOU CAN DANCE. – VODKA
Since 2017, we have been changing the way beverage service works for weddings and events. We’re focused on providing the ultimate experience and options for your beverage wants and needs.
We offer three packages:
1. BYOB – Yes, you can bring your own beverages. We handle the service; you pick and pay for the beverages you want at your event.
2. Full Service – Let us do it all. Top shelf. Top Service. Best experience.
3. Cash bar – Keep the beverages flowing, but don’t worry as much about the cost.
Bring the thirst.
YOUR FAVORITE DAY TO PLAN YOUR EVENT
Every Wednesday we open our doors from 2pm to 8pm for booked clients only. This is your chance to bring anyone and everyone you’d like (or at least need) to help plan your event.
We’ll be on-site to answer any questions and provide solutions to some of the most common situations we’ve come across.
Come on by, enjoy some music, have some beverages, ask some questions and get some planning done.
We look forward to seeing you soon!

EATS, DRINKS AND ENTERTAINMENT. THESE ARE SOME FAVORITES IN THE AREA TO CHECK OUT.
UNION has a flexible vendor policy so that you are able to customize your event to your liking.
Are there any In-House/Exclusive partnerships?
UNION Beverage is our in-house, customizable beverage provider, and we have to say, it’s pretty epic.
Follow-up Question: What are vendor load-in and load-out times and logistics?
Vendors can load in at 10AM the day of your event, and can load out until 10AM the following day.
Follow-up Question: Are there fees associated (for you or the vendor), and finally, what are the vendor’s insurance requirements?
UNION is fee free! We don’t believe in taking commissions or fees from your vendors in order to make your event happen. We require proof of liability insurance, which any licensed vendor will have, anyway!
UNION can accommodate 200 guests for a seated event and much more for a standing cocktail reception style.
When you reserve UNION, you get the venue for 24 hours (including all taxes and fees), tables and chairs for 150 guests, your very own personal Client Concierge, and access to Walkthrough Wednesdays every week.
24 Hours. 10 AM the day of your event, until 10 AM the following day. Yes, you read that right. The 24-hour rental gives you more than enough time to set up, party, and tear down.
Follow-up Question: Is there a the curfew?
Nope. Party on.
Follow-up Questions: Can I come back in the morning and get my belongings? Can my vendors come back in the morning and get theirs?
Yes and yes. We do suggest you appoint someone to take gifts, and any personal items, home the night of.
Yes! Your Client Concierge is your dedicated venue representative from the moment you book, until the end of your event. They are there to make sure the venue functions perfectly for your event.
The Night Manager comes on site once alcohol starts flowing, to ensure we have a dedicated person for facilities needs. Our Coordination service is an additional fee, and is 110% worth it.
Our coordinators give you your life back and make sure your event goes off perfectly. They will stay the entire evening, and handle everything from your set-up and flip, to vendor logistics, to getting you down the aisle even if your ceremony is offsite.
There is ample and free parking available within two blocks of UNION. We highly recommend taking the free Kansas City Streetcar for a true Kansas City experience, or catching an Uber so you can travel worry-free.
We do not have one in-house. Typically, your DJ will provide A/V along with their services. We also have a number of Epic Vendors we work with regularly, that can facilitate a rental.
A room flip would be performed by a hired vendor unless you decide to work with us for your coordination services. At that point, we’ll take care of the details for you!
Typically, your vendors will handle set-up and remove what they bring to the venue. Clean-up (sweeping, mopping, bathrooms) is included in your rental fee; the client is only responsible for trash pick up. We do recycle, as well!
If you book coordination, your coordinator will handle your personal items and make sure you don’t incur any excessive cleaning fees.
Your caterer has ample power in the prep kitchen for warming plates. When using grills or ovens, they can set up in the alley near the loading dock, under a pop-up rental tent. This also needs prior approval from building management.
