Berg Event Space is a modern urban loft conveniently located in downtown Kansas City. From the hardwood floors to the skylights and exposed brick walls, the space is sure to amaze your guests! The unique space looks great as-is or with personal touches throughout. This was the first event space my husband and I ever looked at and after seeing a few more, we realized it simply could not get better than Berg.

Event Manager Jillian Murphy was our primary contact at Berg Event Space and also did our day-of wedding coordination. She was wonderful to work with and had an answer for all of our questions!

The wedding coordination services were incredible. Berg offers 3 different levels of coordination packages (Full Service Coordination Package: $1,750, the Final Steps Coordination Package: $1,000 and the Day-Of Coordination Package: $699). I can’t tell you enough how worth it it was to have her detail-oriented and experienced guidance leading up to the event as well as throughout the evening.

I’ve always fancied myself a pretty simple and organized person, however with wedding planning it was only natural to have questions and need a little extra help. We had a completely stress-free wedding and our guests enjoyed every minute of it!

I highly recommend Berg to anyone out there looking at spaces. And if you’re curious about their coordination packages, take a look at their website or give them a call.

I cannot even begin to express how lucky I feel that we chose the Berg for our wedding (going on nothing but photos and recommendations--I was planning from out-of-town). We had both our ceremony and reception at the Berg, and it could not have been more perfect for us. It has such a beautiful atmosphere--open but warm, contemporary but timeless, urban but classic.

The communication, professionalism, creativity, thoughtfulness, and skill of the Berg staff is unparalleled. I was a very organized, spreadsheet-y kind of a bride, but I didn't want to be setting up centerpieces in my wedding dress. We hired the Berg's Emily Ferguson to be our day-of coordinator, and I am now pretty much in love with her. She was perfectly happy to answer my millions of questions from afar (and did so with speed and comprehensiveness) throughout the process, and handled every detail of our wedding day perfectly. She thought of everything I didn't and made the whole wedding feel effortless and fun and meaningful. I honestly cannot thank her and the Berg enough.

The Berg Event Space is a perfect place for a ceremony and reception. We had 80 guests and it was a perfect fit. We couldn't have asked for better service from Jillian and Emily. They had every detail planned, nothing was left out. We were very happy with our decision to have our wedding there.

The Berg was exactly what we wanted- an urban loft downtown. I can't say enough great things about this place, from the helpful staff to the amazing look and feel! We received so many compliments on its uniqueness. We had both our ceremony and reception here with about 150 guests, which was the perfect amount for this space.

I had been to a wedding at the Berg before and absolutely loved it! So when my fiancé and I were looking at spots it was one we knew we had to visit, and on first look he was sold as well. The space is really beautiful. It had the urban and modern yet still very classy look we were going for. The court yard, freight elevator, and bridal suite created the perfect settings for pictures; while the magnetic wall was a great way for us to display our story and pictures for all of our friends and family to enjoy!
We took advantage of their day of coordinator service and without a doubt was one of the best choices we made. The staff was friendly, organized, knowledgeable, and incredibly easy to work! With them in charge I wasn't concerned about anything, and it made me have a surprising low stress kind of day! Thinking back we wouldn't have changed anything and would have chosen the Berg all over again!

With them in charge I wasn't concerned about anything, and it made me have a surprising low stress kind of day! Thinking back we wouldn't have changed anything and would have chosen the Berg all over again! Read less

The Berg was the most amazing place for our wedding and reception. We are an older couple celebrating a second marriage, and without exception, every guest raved about the space. It was the perfect venue for our special night. The staff was courteous and very responsive to every need and requirement. The ambiance was exactly what we were looking for to create a relaxed, hip vibe for an extremely happy occasion. The mood for the evening was set the minute the guests walked in the door and got a drink from the bar, and then sat at a table to enjoy the ceremony. Just a very accommodating and highly efficient group of people, and again, the space was amazing.

The Berg Event Space is a beautiful location to have a wedding reception. The space itself is positively gorgeous and the set up on our wedding day was perfect. Unfortunately, it was raining so we couldn't have the outdoor bar. The staff was super friendly and helpful- ensuring our day was positively perfect. I really appreciated the flexibility and attention to detail to make the space exactly as we wanted. We could not have been happier. It fit with our contemporary romantic theme and we received so many compliments on our space. Would highly recommend to others.

The Berg Event Space was exactly what we were looking for when deciding on a venue for our ceremony and reception. We toured several venues and met with different event coordinators but nothing compared to The Berg. We wanted something unique but elegant and it was very important that we 'got a good vibe' from the event coordinator after our initial tour. The staff at The Berg exceeded our expectations! Event Manager, Jillian, is so professional, has excellent follow up and went above and beyond to make sure we enjoyed out wedding day with no issues. Our guests were so impressed with how beautiful and unique the venue is. I HIGHLY recommend The Berg to hold your next event!

Thank you for a beautiful wedding and amazing experience!

The Berg was everything I had dreamt of for our reception. Very urban, lofty feel, but still very usable for a big event. They were great to work with and handled a lot of the day-of details- Jillian even fixed my bustle when my bridesmaids couldn't figure it out! We only had one miscommunication working between the two contacts which resulted in not getting the passed champagne toast we had planned on adding to our alcohol package, but it didn't really take much away from anything especially since the bar was open during dinner. They are very up front about restrictions and rules, but I appreciate that vs getting surprised later.

My husband and I had our ceremony and reception at the Berg Event Space. I loved the space the minute I walked in there. The best part of the Berg was Emily. My wedding would have not have happened without her. She took care of everything. I had a problem with our initial caterer and she gave me great suggestions on other places to go with. I can't say enough good things about the Berg. Our wedding was everything we wanted. Thanks again Emily!

The Berg was a pleasure to work with! Very helpful when it came to meeting our needs leading up to the weekend and during the night of the event. Appreciated the quick responses and all the coordination since we were out of town - that helped tremendously knowing that we were in good hands the day of. The venue is just spectacular and speaks for itself- had no complaints there. The perfect combo of rustic chic - and right in the heart of the city close to all the action. All the furniture was set up just the way we wanted and the event staff was a huge help the night of with the mics and technical elements. Everything it was just perfect for our BBQ rehearsal dinner!

The only thing we were frustrated about was the flexibility of the Berg. We paid $3000 + several other fees to have our reception there on a Saturday evening. We were only able to begin decorating the space 4 consecutive hours prior to our event. Because we only held our reception at the Berg, we could begin decorating at 2pm and that is what time our wedding began and we didn't want to ask any family/friends to miss our wedding in order to setup the reception site. We had very limited time to decorate the space and had to ask many people to help setup so that we could finish in time. We were offered more time at $150 per hour, I believe, so that was not an option as we were on a budget. We did, however, appreciate that the tables and chairs were all setup by Berg staff before our decorations crew arrived and they allowed us to store our decorations in their basement overnight the day before. I rated Value 4 stars because you get very few perks included in the cost of the space. Bartender fees, disposable cups, catering, parking fees, security fees, etc. all cost extra and several are required.

The customer service and response time we received was excellent. All our questions were answered and we appreciated the 'consultation' appointment to discuss the layout and what not. The Berg representative whom we met with gave us some great suggestions and we appreciated her help!

The night of the reception was excellent! In our opinion, everything ran very smoothly. The Berg representative was very helpful with our entrance via the freight elevator and answering our last minute questions. Other than that, she didn't bother us with other questions/issues or make herself noticeable in our crowd of guests - which we very much appreciated! We gave a check to our coordinator and asked that the Berg representative get with our coordinator at the end of the night to have our final balance paid and that went very well.

We had approximately 150 guests and they all fit very well.

The venue is a beautiful blank canvas in an urban setting. The cost of the venue and all of the fees included make it rather expensive. We blew way past our budget because of little additional fees we were not fully aware of here and there (from all of our vendors, not just The Berg). The staff is very friendly and helpful, but you do have to pay them extra to go above and beyond with planning. As I mentioned, it is a blank canvas. You can use this space to create any sort of mood you would like, if you have the money to do so. The dressing rooms are really beautiful, however you don't have a ton of time in them to get ready unless you want to pay extra. You also cannot have your rehearsal here unless you want to pay an additional ceremony fee ($700ish, I believe) to book a single hour for the night before. I would recommend this place to ANYONE because of it's uniqueness, urban feel, beauty, and location. However, I would encourage people thinking of this venue to read into the fine details of all contracts and to carefully consider their budget before booking.

BEAUTIFUL VENUE. This was hands down the best place for our wedding. It was beautiful without having to put too much time into decorating, the staff was friendly and it was exactly what we wanted for our urban/city wedding. The only negative I had was that the floors were filthy, and I was no aware of it. They looked clean, but within 10 minutes I had black marks all over the bottom of my gown. To the point that they could not be cleaned out. With brides walking around in expensive gowns it would be nice if they would have someone come in and clean the floors.

Thank you for your compliments Jenni!
We do have our floors swept, vacuumed and mopped for each event. However, our floors are original 1909 wood floors and just don't clean up like concrete or tile. We hope that the beauty of the floors in your photos out weighs the scuff marks :)

Great event space. Many guests commented afterward how much they liked our venue, and were happy we had our event there. Sandy was helpful in getting the event planned and was around all night to make sure things ran smoothly. I'd recommend this space to any bride looking for a fun loft venue in downtown KC.

I will start out by saying the Berg Event Space is a gorgeous, modern loft style and when I look back at the pictures and the video I will be reminded of a wonderful day.

That said I have several complaints. Let me start with the bar package. Only the groomsmen are permitted beers before the ceremony. My father (groom's father) was denied a beer during this time. My groomsmen complained that it was still very difficult to get a beer even though they were supposed to be permitted. I was a bit embarrassed that the open bar I purchased had so many restrictions. I found out there were no shots allowed when all the groomsmen gathered up to take a celebratory shot. There were no shots allowed even though I bought a package that included liquor. Again, I was left embarrassed in front of my guests.

The Berg is not flexible, and they do not care if their lack of flexibility will cost you big time. Reading through old reviews it appears that once upon a time the Berg allowed you to store items in their basement overnight. I am here to tell you that option no longer exists. With all of the rentals involved in a wedding, this creates a nightmare situation. Our vendors all acted like leaving things at the venue was a given, but when we talked to the Berg, they were nonnegotiable - even when we explained that this would turn a $200 chair rental into $700 because of overtime wages and same-day pickup.

Underlying all of these complaints is the feeling that we were not valued by the Berg staff. The price of this venue is on par with other venues in KC, and I believe you should be treated with respect as such a paying client. We were not. Our other vendors were so friendly and treated us as if they were happy we chose them to be a part of our wedding. KC has a lot of beautiful, modern venues. If I were choosing all over again, I don’t know that I could say I’d choose Berg Event Space.

Berg Event Space responded with the following comments:

Bar service is contracted for 4.5 hours to begin following the ceremony. Complimentary champagne and beers are provided in the Groom's Room and Bridal Suite prior to the ceremony, but are not meant to be unlimited during the 4 hours of set up time. We will happily arrange an open bar for additional hours when requested, for an additional charge. Our contract states that we do not serve shots. We practice responsible alcohol service outlined by the state of Missouri, the issuer of our liquor license.

All clients with outdoor ceremonies are responsible for renting outdoor chairs to be delivered and picked up same day. Unfortunately, we do not, nor have we ever, had the storage space to store 150 chairs in our basement. I feel we are very up front with clients on all of our policies. Our main goal is to provide excellent service and make your wedding day as stress free and smoothly run as possible with direct, prompt and honest planning strategies in the months leading up to your event.

We are disappointed you feel that you and your wife were not valued throughout your planning process! We had extensive communication with your wife throughout her year long planning and feel that we were always prompt, courteous and helpful when responding to emails, retuning phone calls and meeting in person. I am glad to see that you have given other vendors, many of our favorites, such high marks. I'm only sorry we were not able to impress you in the same way.
