Windows on Washington

The team at Windows On Washington® has been helping families celebrate since opening as the Klein Catering Company in the late 1980s. Since then, the family-owned business has grown into Windows On Washington, an iconic location for your St. Louis celebration in a historic downtown loft space.

A Rich History

Our eight story building has a rich history starting with its construction in 1903 as a power plant for the STL Transit Company, one of St. Louis' first streetcar lines. Now, floors six through eight are beautiful, urban loft spaces that provide the perfect backdrop for parties and celebrations year round. Delicious details are still an important part of each celebration, as the entire fifth floor is dedicated to a top-notch kitchen and the world-class Windows culinary team.

The building's history has been preserved in small details like the original fire doors and exposed brick walls, and is accented by custom artwork and the iconic neon champagne bottle that lights up Wash Ave. Each floor has room for 410 guests for a reception with a dance floor and head table, 250 guests for a ceremony and reception, or 800 guests for a cocktail-style event, two covered open-air verandas, private restrooms and unique architectural features.

"WOW was the best venue for our ceremony and reception! None of my the wedding party nor family members lived in St. Louis so we needed a one-stop-shop venue that could do it all! For example, rehearsal space, ceremony, reception, linens, catering, alcohol, etc. Everything was handled by WOW which was so nice not having to deal with multiple vendors. They had an amazing food menu, drink options, linens and more! Whatever your wedding vision/theme is, they can create it. We would highly recommend WOW for a ceremony and reception! That way, once you and your guests get to the venue, you don't have to travel anywhere else until the reception concludes. We worked with Emily at WOW and she was wonderful! She explained all package options and had a preset wedding timeline which was extremely helpful."
