  • I literally cannot say enough good things about working with Abe and Jakes! I sent them countless emails, asked so many questions and they completely bend over backward to make sure I had the best day possible. We had tons of set-up time the day of, the staff helped us plan and asked all the right questions to help us think things through properly. There were no hidden fees. Because of their great service, my big day ran like clockwork! They were kind, transparent, genuinely caring, extremely professional and responsive, and extremely competent. I couldn't be happier! By the end of the planning I felt like we were friends! I'm so grateful for their help. I worked with Kiley and I wish I could hire her at my own company, she was absolutely incredible. Don't hesitate to book with Abe and Jakes! Bonus my photographers, videographer, and caterer all LOVED this venue. They said it was an ideal set-up. And it was so great to have gorgeous natural lighting and not have to worry about the elem... Read more

  • Every year we host an annual fundraiser gala at Abe & Jake's. The venue is absolutely gorgeous with spaces for everything. From behind the scenes to the guests walking through the door, everywhere you look is spectacularly well done. Of course the venue itself is a huge factor, but to me the most important part of the experience is Leila Ahvarhoush. She is a brilliant mix of professional and comic relief at the same time. Somehow Leila anticipates everything I need in advance... like calling our VIP reception caterer or finding me a spot to do my hair before the event started. Her preparation, organization and wonderful personality will take away the stress of planning an event.

  • We had a wonderful Slow Money event at Abe & Jake's. Everything went so smoothly. Leila was amazing and so accommodating. She really took the time to explain everything to us. The day of the event was so easy for us since the staff at Abe & Jake's took care of EVERYTHING. Plus, the space is so beautiful and unique. We loved overlooking the river!

  • I have worked with Abe & Jakes Landing for several fundraisers over many years and there is a reason we keep going back. Their Manager, Leila, makes the event planning process painless and enjoyable with her knowledge, flexibility and expertise. I can say with certainty these events would not have gone as smoothly or efficiently if it were not for Leila and staff. Not only do they take immaculate care of the venue, they also care if the event goes well for the client. The staff are friendly, accommodating, reliable and typically go beyond their jobs to ensure a successful event. That kind of customer service is hard to find...not to mention a gorgeous space for events and weddings!!! Highly recommend!!!

  • We absolutely loved having our wedding and reception at Abe & Jake's! Kiley was incredibly helpful as we decided how the day should go, and talked through all options as many times as we needed. We always felt like we were in good hands. And the space - WOW! We received so many compliments on Abe & Jake's! People said it was the most unique space they had ever been to for a wedding. It was classy and rustic and inviting - and so accommodating. I can't say enough positive things about the space and the people who work there. It was worth every penny!!

  • Abe and Jake's is one of the best locations in Lawrence! They have the space to accommodate just about any size event. The space is also a unique atmosphere that has great views from every angle. The service provided by the company can not be beat as well! They are fast, kind, and responsive every time my organization uses them.

  • I heard about Abe & Jakes because my soon to be sister in law had her reception there and they loved it. When my fiance' and I went in for our tour with Rosie Robertson, it was amazing. I not only fell in love with the venue but with Rosie who would be coordinating as well. Fantastic place, fantastic people.

  • I would use this venue a million times over for events. They were so amazingly accommodating for our family. My wedding was amazing and they did so much to work with us. With a child with special needs it can be stressful; they made it wonderful!

  • We recently had our wedding reception at Abe & Jake's Landing in mid October. We absolutely LOVED the venue. It is a beautiful event space with tons of character and charm. It is a large space, we had about 300 guests, and it filled the space well, without being overcrowded. I really liked that there was a separate room for the caterer. We were able to have 2 double sided buffet lines, and since it was in a separate room, there was no distractions or disruptions from set up and tear down. The dance floor is a great size and we loved that the venue had a stage. We hired a band as our entertainment for the night, which worked out perfectly on the stage. One potentially negative aspect was that the bar was through Abe & Jake's, so it was a little pricey. There was a large selection for the bar, and the bar service was quick and efficient. We also hired Kiley, who is the wedding coordinator, for help with set up. She was easy to communicate with, always timely with responses, h... Read more
