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.

"Windows on Washington was the perfect location for our wedding reception. We are constantly receiving compliments from our friends and family about the venue, bar, food, etc. Having booked a year out from the event date, we always felt like a priority to WOW and can only say wonderful things about the transparency, communication and organization that made our planning process so smooth. Our wedding day could not have gone more perfectly and we know that WOW was a huge reason for this. Nothing is better than walking into a reception venue and already having everything taken care of. It was a huge stress reliever and led to a seamless night!"
