This popular, serene setting has become one of Kansas City’s top gathering places. Our spaces are as diverse as the people who enjoy them.

The Temple accommodates ten to twenty events a day and the staff provides courteous and personable customer-friendly service. We go that extra mile to make everyone feel comfortable and at home, and to ensure a successful event. The Temple preserves and exudes a peaceful and serene environment in the middle of one of the country’s oldest outdoor shopping districts, with haute couture retail stores, hotels within easy walking distance, numerous restaurants, sculpted water fountains, classical and modern statuary and horse-drawn carriages, in a romantic setting modeled after the Plaza in Seville, Spain. The Plaza is located on all major bus lines to downtown.
