“The Martin” is a private event venue for weddings, receptions, anniversaries, corporate events, seminars, fundraisers, graduations, birthdays, and more.
The Martin City Brewing Company opened The Martin Event Space in 2015 to accommodate the growing demand for private events in South Kansas City.
The renovated 3000 square foot ballroom allows up to 200 guests to dance the night away on a dedicated indoor dance floor or a private patio outdoors while listening to music piped in through a professional concert-level sound system. The Martin provides tables, chairs, linens, glassware, dinnerware, and flatware for events. Full-bar service and in-house catering are also available.
For more information or to inquire about booking the space, please visit The Martin’s website.
The Martin Event Space building first came to life as a Methodist Church in 1890 on land donated by a local liquor industry tycoon. During the 1957 Ruskin Heights Tornado, thirty people survived by huddling in the basement while the sanctuary above blew away. When the sky cleared, the church was still standing, offering inspiration to rebuild in Martin City when others may have been tempted to move on.
