- History of our Space - Built in 1910, the Livestock Exchange Building was seen as a fortress of commerce for Kansas City and the western territory. With 475 offices, the building housed the Stockyards Company, telegraph offices, banks, restaurants, railroad and packing house representatives, and government agencies. It was the largest livestock exchange building in the world and one of the largest office buildings in Kansas City. - Neighborhood Details - Surrounded by an eclectic mix of businesses, the West Bottoms are home to many artists, architecture studios, and antique dealers. If your looking for a fun bar and unique bar experience after a long day of shooting or workshops, The Campground is right across the street. Next door to that is a favorite of ours, Lucky Boys, and the beautiful KC restaurant Voltaire. - Logistics + Space Set up - We have a very versatile studio space set up that is easily rearranged to encourage creative freedom. Feel free to move our couches (one leather, one plush), tables (two all-white Ikea, one wood, and one large glass table), rugs (2 large turkish rugs and 3 other) to get the exact feel you want for your photo/video shoot/ workshop. We have a working piano, wall hanging TV, small refrigerator, and record player for your use as well. Please help yourself to drinks and snacks! - Special Rates Associated with Booking the Space - We have additional rates for shoots over 7 people, weekends, and late hours. - Information about Past Bookings - We have had a great deal of success with previous people and businesses who have booked our space! Don't take it from us though, here's what they have to say: "Today was great thank you! Got some great product photos, appreciate it! And also just enjoyed being there! THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!" - Owner of Happy Habitat "The space is just so warm and inviting with natural bright light in every corner. I loved taking portraits here and my clients love it too!" - Tarmine, Photographer

Miriam M. booked a bridal shower for 15 people
Absolutely adorable place. I had my bridal shower here and got tons of compliments. It has plenty of spots for cute pictures and tables for food and games. Only downside was there is not access to a kitchen which I was aware of but would have been nice. Would love to book again!

The space was as advertised, very nice, and a great location for us. We'll likely book again as our retreat from our office.
