About The Otten on MainThe Otten on Main is located in Kansas City’s historic Crossroads Arts District. Built as a hotel and brothel in the 1920s, today the charming, refurbished building is a study in urban design harmony. The Otten balances a modern vibe and layout with touches of vintage charm and character. With the building's exposed brick, white washed ceiling beams, concrete walls, and breathtaking rooftop views, your event is sure to be an unforgettable occasion.
It all started in 1918 . . .
The Otten on Main was built in 1918 and opened as the Otten Hotel. The hotel was conveniently located next to Union Station providing the perfect spot for workers coming in and out of the city. The working-class hotel took up much of the 20th block of Main. The building later became the Terminal Hotel, and today our refurbished building operates as an office building, performance event venue, and rooftop venue.
