Butler’s Pantry to Open Premier Event Venue in Historic Lafayette Square

Butler’s Pantry, Saint Louis’ most innovative and creative catering company, is transforming the former laundry facility of the City Hospital into a premier event space—the Palladium. Built in 1937, the building had languished in Lafayette Square for years. Now restoration of this historic building is underway and the Palladium’s first event is scheduled for Fall 2009.

“The Palladium has been a dream of mine for a long time,” said Richard Nix Jr., president of Butler’s Pantry. “A venue of this caliber will make a great addition to Saint Louis’ downtown scene.”

Butler’s Pantry hired designer Mark Herman to design the former laundry building’s metamorphosis into a glamorous and hip venue. His interior designer is creating a sophisticated ambiance with a sleek and modern decor.

When finished, the Palladium will be a spectacular space designed to accommodate up to an astounding 700 people. The chef’s kitchen will span three stories and will be equipped to create gourmet food for guests. Palladium guests will enjoy dining and dancing the night away in the gorgeous Palladium, with its two-story windows overlooking the historic Lafayette Square neighborhood.

Palladium Saint Louis • Setting the Scene

Palladium Saint Louis is a piece of history brought back to life. Vacant since 1985, the 6,500-square-foot site was built in 1937 as the laundry facility for City Hospital. The site has been carefully restored including the original ceiling and metal truss work and the building has been crowned with a replica of the historic cupola. Just name it and we can do it in this landmark space!
With room for up to 700, Palladium Saint Louis is the distinctive choice for weddings, social gatherings, corporate functions and galas. Located in Lafayette Square at Park Avenue and Park Place, Palladium Saint Louis has convenient access to I-64, I-55 and I-44. Your guests will be captivated when they see:

  • The large floating Mezzanine that overlooks the event space and the City skyline
  • Two-story windows offering a cityscape view
  • Artistic “petals” that provide personalized room designs
  • Dramatic lighting and state-of-the-art audio and visual capability
