Our History - Windows on Washington

Our History

Home » About Us » Our History

This venue recently moved to 1601 Washington Avenue. If you have been a guest in the past, you will be amazed by the wonderful updates and changes we have made, while staying true to the past and keeping Windows On Washington one of the most unique venues in Saint Louis.

Our new eight-story building was originally built in 1903 and housed the power plant for the St. Louis Transit Company, one of Saint Louis’ first streetcar lines. It has recently gone through an extensive renovation and has been beautifully refinished with unique Downtown Loft Styling.

The front exterior of the building is marked with a 25-foot animated and multi-colored Windows On Washington-WOW® Champagne Bottle. This sign is complete with a popping cork and flashing neon lights. This sensational sign can be seen up and down Washington Avenue!

As guests enter the Grand Lobby, they are greeted by our staff with complimentary champagne. Here they discover a one-of-a-kind custom fountain. The fountain is a beautiful sculpture of hand-blown glass overflowing with a garden of colorful flowers that are gently sprinkled with a shower of rain.

We feature three uniquely styled dining rooms on the sixth, seventh and eighth floors. Each of these rooms offer exposed brick walls, combination polished concrete and hardwood floors, creatively styled bars, and private restrooms. The open-air verandahs with views of downtown St. Louis and full-length windows ensure a spectacular view sure to enhance any event.
