The Kent at Keel and Front is Memphis’ newest premier event venue offering a classic downtown experience for your wedding, corporate or private event.
Beautifully preserved and renovated, The Kent offers a charming blend of sophistication and rustic elegance at a brand new urban space located in the heart of the Historic Snuff District of downtown Memphis. Our building has been converted from a historic site to provide you with the perfect industrial-chic location to host your dream event.
Before The Kent was the event venue of your dreams, our building began as a cotton oil press in 1883, and was adapted and altered to become Tri State Iron Works from 1927 until 1975. The Kent has a rich history rooted in the industrial evolution of Memphis and we’re excited to showcase the history in our event space.
With over 20,000 square feet of space that allows for up to 1,000 guests, The Kent can be utilized in a variety of ways for any celebration. Featuring a pre-function area with an outdoor courtyard, a large ballroom, private suites for getting ready, additional meeting rooms, and an on-site experienced event planner, we offer many amenities to help make your wedding or event great. Easy access to downtown Memphis makes us the perfect in-town destination for your wedding, private party, corporate event and more.
