Sarah N. Wedding: 11/1/2014 Unparalleled Ambiance in Downtown KC Cellar 222 and it's staff far exceeded the expectations we had for our fall wedding. The decor, accessibility, floor plan, etc. greatly contributed to an amazing experience for all. Furthermore, Scott's event planning clairvoyance is unsurpassed by any of his contemporaries. Cellar 222 gets our highest endorsement.

Brooke E. Wedding: 10/18/2014 Amazing Wedding Venue! Cellar 222 is an amazing venue and I'm so glad we chose to have our wedding there! Cy and Scott were awesome! They answered every question I emailed and were very easy to get a hold of. The venue is so unique and our family fell in love with it, just like we did! The stone fireplace and exposed brick made our wedding beautiful. I would highly recommend Cellar 222! You will not be disappointed!

Michael H. Wedding: 9/27/2014 A Beautiful Wedding Reception Space! We recently held our wedding reception at Cellar 222 and were more than pleased with the outcome! We were looking for a venue with a warm atmosphere that would comfortably fit our expected number of guests. We were thrilled when we discovered Cellar 222. Because of the innate beauty of the space, it required very little additional decoration to create the feel we wanted. It was absolutely beautiful with candlelight after sundown. Also, the owners had just finished remodeling the main floor of the building, which expanded the max limit of guests we were able to accommodate. One of our other favorite things about Cellar 222 was the ability to utilize the two levels which allowed us to separate different aspects of our reception while still allowing everyone present to feel part of the entire event. We utilized the main floor for the DJ, one of the bars and dancing and had the lower level for the food, toasts and sit down tables. Later in the evening as some of the guests were celebrating upstairs, the lower level served as a quieter space for some of the guests to visit.

Working with the owners was very reassuring during the inherent busyness of wedding planning. Cy and Scott sat down with us and answered questions and brought up details to think through that we hadn't even considered. They were very available and responsive to questions from beginning to end. We utilized their preferred vendor list for both our bartenders and caterers. It was helpful to have vendors who were familiar with the space to work with along the way. It was truly a pleasure to work with Cy and Scott and we appreciate their care and professionalism.

We would absolutely recommend Cellar 222!

Mary L. Wedding: 9/27/2014 Perfect intimate, classy venue for our rehearsal dinner for 50 Forget your preconceived ideals of a cellar. Cellar 222 has wonderful ambience, beautiful cozy stone fireplace, stone and brick walls, tile floors, perfect lighting - we added minimal decorations....votive candles around the room on a stone ledge (great idea Scott) a seasonal touch on the fireplace, pillars on the tables, nothing else was needed. Clean, clean, clean dining room, kitchen and restrooms, audio delivers a big theater quality sound from your iPod, professional-service, every detail is in writing - no worrisome 'verbal' agreements that we ran into elsewhere. We handled table and chair set up and take down, caterer did everything else. It's a tad hidden so we just laid that out so everyone would know they have to be on the look out. We were delighted and so were our guests. The experience from start to finish was first rate. I'd book it again!

Kathryn C. Wedding: 9/20/2014 Party Midtown Underground My father and mother-in-law hosted an in-town reception after our destination wedding. As only a small group of guests attended the out of town wedding, Cellar 222 provided a perfect setting to accommodate our 120 or so guests. We had eight full hours and then some, which venue was very gracious about. The space was refined and elegant. There was plenty of room for large dining tables, some cocktail tables, a full buffet, a dance floor, and the bar setup. The sound system was easy to use and perfectly setup, we just had to plug in our iPod. I knew it was going to be a great party, but I really had to take note of how many guests mentioned they were so impressed with the venue. My boss's wife said she had found the place to throw him a 50th birthday party, and many other guests kept mentioning what a cool place it was. As I looked around at the rustic tile and fantastic custom furniture, I felt the exact same way. The venue had exceeded everyone's expectations, and our night was so memorable. Thanks to Cellar 222's owners on behalf of the Coburns and Watsons, you guys were so nice and easy to work with, and your place is a perfect fit for weddings and parties of any type. We certainly recommend Cellar 222 and will not hesitate to use this venue again in the future.
