The Otten on Main is one of Kansas City’s premier event venues. The space consists of a large indoor and rooftop event area. The Otten is situated within a magnificently refurbished, historic building in the renowned Crossroads Arts District. The venue is named after The Otten Hotel, the buildings original identity during the 1920’s. Interestingly, as with many hotels during the 19th and early 20th century, the hotel housed a brothel for short period of time.

Where do I begin?! My husband and i cannot recommend this venue and Emily enough!!! First of all, we were in an incredibly awful situation losing our venue 6 weeks out of our wedding! We scrambled and scrambled to find another when we were given the Name and info to Emily and The Otten. Emily was so incredibly sweet and amazing enough to have things stepped up and get the venue ready to be open and ready for ouu big day!! They went above and beyond to help us out in such a crappy situation and they did not disappoint!! We were nervous but emily put ALL of our worries aside and made sure we were well taken care of. She let us come see the venue as the updates were done and kept us up to date! The venue was ready for our big day!!! What sold us on this venue was that gorgeous rooftop view! That view was priceless! The day of our wedding, it stormed all day, so we ended up having to have the ceremony inside instead of on the roof and Emily went with it and helped all day! She was there early and stayed late to help with literally everything. I cannot say enough how thankful we are for her and The Otten to basically step up and help us make our big day amazing! I can guarantee that you will not be disappointed when choosing this beautiful place for your wedding! Thank you all so, so much. We love The Otten and Emily!!!
