First Floor and Mezzanine

About This Venue

Within the First Floor and Mezzanine levels lies an oceanic wonderland seating 100 people. Mermaids and sea creatures swirl around the mosaic floors and columns. The cloud-like ceiling creates a dreamy atmosphere. A triple level tree stage and dance floor area are perfect for a band, presentation or champagne toast! Native Missouri fish and turtles swim in the 5,000-gallon aquarium ornamented with oyster shells, found sea glass and mosaic tiles. 

Above the first-floor mosaics and aquarium, the mezzanine level also overlooks the new two-story waterfall and goldfish pool. An extension of the cafe presents an impressive view of the waterfall and is just close enough to the two-story slide to tempt your guests. Care for a ride?
