Californos offers several services wrapped into one: a beautiful wedding reception venue, wedding catering, and a full-service open bar, all for one simple price per person! Since all the drinks for your full bar are included in our pricing, we have also already accounted for all sales tax and the minimum service charges that would be due. That means that this is super easy math, with a per person price that can be multiplied by your guest count for total cost. You can quickly estimate the entire reception cost at any point in the planning process.
We find it to be at our advantage to offer inclusive packages, because it makes our bids complete and easy to digest, with very straightforward and clear pricing options. But I have asked myself, why does Californos price this way, when none of the other popular wedding venues in Kansas City offer this kind of a price point and all-inclusive service for wedding receptions. Well, of course, there are very few appropriate places like Californos in Kansas City, where the venue, food & drink are all provided. Secondly, venues are possibly afraid that they will not charge enough if they include the tax and service charge up front.
However, Californos has already hosted countless Kansas City weddings in the past 28 years, so we have an excellent idea for how much food, drink, staffing, space, labor & sales tax is involved!
