So Hospitable – A Glimpse at 612North Event Space + Catering


By Olivia Orman

Located along the riverfront of St. Louis, 612North Event Space + Catering blends modern and historical elements to create unparalleled group experiences.  The establishment is headquartered at the Laclede’s Landing Cutlery Building that was built in 1882 and once owned by Henry Shaw, the founder of the Missouri Botanical Garden.

In addition to the building’s rich history, 612North proudly stands right next to the Arch Grounds.  Its venue is also near other attractions and hotels in the heart of the city, making it an easily accessible choice for groups traveling from a distance.  However, it is the team at 612North and their attention to detail that truly makes these meetings and events memorable.

“Our company has an annual training day each year as part of a bigger event.  I was thrilled to find 612North to host this year, after having to cancel last year.  The space is amazing on the inside and gives has an urban chic feel you can only get in the historic building in St. Louis City.  Oh and the views!  We were able to utilize the lower level for breakout sessions and the main floor was perfect for meals and meetings.  The staff at 612North helped make everything easy from start to finish and were on site all day to help keep everything running smoothly.  We received so many compliments on the location and the food.  Our event was a huge success and 612North can take all of the credit.” – Larson Financial
