A note from the founders:

Kansas City holds a special place in our hearts. We were married here and have always been drawn to the energy of this city.

We are both honored and proud to share The Abbott with you. We’ve created Kansas City’s premier venue for large weddings and corporate events for one simple reason: we want you to feel as much togetherness and purpose within these walls as we feel within this city, specifically the Crossroads Arts District.

In our properties and our personal home, we’ve always loved to entertain, and we’ve brought that vision and enthusiasm to The Abbott. So, share. Celebrate. We hope you love it here.



Matt & Emily Abbott


In 2017, The Crossroads Art District was named Kansas City’s favorite neighborhood—and it’s not hard to see why. Featuring distilleries, restaurants, offices, dance studios, event venues, art galleries, corporate headquarters and everything in between, the boutique district pulses with creatives, forward-thinkers, and movers and shakers—and it’s growing.

The Crossroads

We’ve purchased over 25 blighted buildings in the East Crossroads and continue to renovate them, energetically spearheading the expansion. Two of our favorite projects include an 81-room boutique hotel (The Hotel Indigo) and, of course, The Abbott, an event venue close to our hearts. Featuring Sonoma style finishes within the original architecture of a 15,000 square foot industrial warehouse, The Abbott can comfortably accommodate 500 seated or 1,100 standing guests. It’s size—coupled with the best possible finishes and services—make The Abbott the urban event venue in the East Crossroads. Put simply, it’s a space unlike any other in a district unlike any other. Join us.


There is no better way to describe our experience at The Abbott other than absolutely perfect. We were fortunate to be the first wedding in this beautiful space and the whole day was more incredible than we could have asked for. I would HIGHLY recommend The Abbott to future brides-to-be!


Charlie Hustle hosted our Spring Warehouse Sale at the Abbott on April 5th. We were the first event that the Abbott hosted, and we were incredibly impressed and grateful for the amazing support that Kelly and her team provided from start to finish. The space is beautiful and the team is knowledgeable and professional. Highly recommended!
