Our Story 

When owner Steve Beaumont needed to make a decision about the future of his former bank building located in Lenexa, KS, the idea dawned on him; The space would be perfect for an event venue. As he started to dream up plans for what the venue could be, he realized the structure of the building had very similar design features to many of the US Mint and Federal Reserve locations throughout the country. This architectural discovery quickly inspired an obvious choice in name: The Mint. It was simple, memorable and tied everything together so perfectly. 

Working with Klover Architects, Steve had his visions turned into renderings, and began remodeling the space in the summer of 2023. Through the process, he has made carefully executed design choices that lean into a federal style, a true nod to the building's banking history, while also bringing in modern finishes and decor. This included turning the large bank vault, a focal point of the venue, into a stunning speakeasy style bar. 

If you know Steve, you know that thematic room concepts are his specialty (See Chateau Avalon Hotel). And while the bank-inspired touches range from eye-catching to understated, the space couldn't be complete without one fully themed room, The Groom's Saloon. Complete with a bar, poker table, custom wood lockers, western artwork and an outdoor cigar lounge, this suite is sure to be a hit among the groom and his closest pals. There are so many more exciting features and gems hidden in this space, and we can't wait for you to see them all! 


We know in our hearts that this one-of-a-kind venue is just what Kansas City needed! We did our research, studied the market and have worked hard to implement the most desirable amenities while also bringing in new concepts to keep things fresh. Not to mention our location is unmatched! The Mint is in the heart of Johnson County, surrounded by numerous hotels, plenty of incredible restaurants and the best shopping. We like to think our venue truly has it all! We'd love for you to see it all for yourself: schedule a personalized tour!
