Elegant events surrounded by history. 

Beautifully framed by the exterior of the Edward Bates School from the near north side of St. Louis, this unique, elegant space houses a fascinating mix of salvaged architectural pieces. An ornate, turn-of-the-century bar and a permanent, hardwood dance floor provide a stylish setting for any elegant event.

Venue capacity is 300 seated and 400 standing.

  • Round tables and chairs for seating up to the capacity of the room
  • General admission* access to City Museum on the day of your event; Rooftop access is not included, but can be added for an additional fee March-October, weather permitting

*Admission during nonoperating hours requires an additional staffing fee to be applied. 

Book an Event

We begin booking events one year in advance and can reserve dates up to two weeks prior to the event date. One date in one room may be temporarily held for up to two weeks with no contract or money. If you’re ready to secure a date, a $500 nonrefundable deposit and signed contract are required. Once reserved, events may not be canceled but may be rescheduled as long as the new date is available and falls within a year of the old.
