Jefferson Underground

2400 South Jefferson Ave., St. Louis; (918) 550-9506; JeffersonUnderground.com

Jefferson Underground's storied past as a 1920s Chevrolet dealership and later a carnival-supply company in the 1970s contributes to the charm within its red brick walls and under its beamed ceilings. In this latest incarnation as an eco-friendly, rooftop event space, 95 percent of materials and furnishings, including all of the granite and metal, as well as tables and chairs, were recycled from local dumpsters and refurbished. Invite up to 250 guests for dinner and dancing either outside, inside or both!

NEO on Locust

2801 Locust St., St. Louis; (314) 570-9218; NeoStL.com

In case one's not enough, NEO on Locust has two industrial ballrooms to choose from. Have your ceremony in the first floor Oakland Room with its red-tile floors, giant windows and exposed ceilings before heading to the fourth-floor NEO Room for your reception. The exposed brick and paned windows on every wall provide a consistent look between the two events, and up to 300 guests won't have to wait for a room flip! Pro tip: If you don't have a signature drink in mind, serve the NEO Blue Moon signature cocktail with vodka, blue curaçao, Sprite and sweet-and-sour mix.

SqWires

1415 South 18th St., St. Louis; (314) 865-3522; SqWires.com

Owned by SqWires Restaurant in historic Lafayette Square, SqWires' modern, industrial event space is located next door! And since it's owned by the renowned eatery, your wedding is sure to be a culinary delight for up to 150 guests. Choose from both sweet and savory selections even the pickiest of eaters will love. If the food alone doesn't impress, the contemporary 18-foot ceilings, eight-foot windows, exposed red brick, original wood and iron details sure will!

Third Degree Glass Factory

5200 Delmar Blvd., St. Louis; (314) 367-4527; ThirdDegreeGlassFactory.com

Beyond the character of the space itself—red brick walls, paned glass skylights and exposed ceilings—Third Degree Glass Factory offers hands-on ways to personalize your party. Taking a cue from the venue, staff can help set up a glass unity ceremony or feature a glassblowing or flamework demonstration by a local artist during the cocktail hour or reception. Guests (up to 225 of them) can get creative too by taking part in a guided activity and making their own unique paperweight, magnet or tile. Who says weddings have to be traditional?

The Westin St. Louis

811 Spruce St., St. Louis; (314) 621-2000; StarwoodHotels.com/Westin

On the outside, the Westin St. Louis looks like a classic hotel. On the inside, it's unexpectedly industrial in design. Concrete pillars and stone floors in the bar area and an open ceiling and metal lighting in the Clark Street Grille Restaurant create a modern-cool vibe. We're partial to The Promenade ballroom, where up to 225 guests can enjoy the exposed brick, warm wood tones and walls of windows with views of the Gateway City. Since the modern space is part of the renowned Westin hotel chain, you can expect extraordinary service, including an on-site wedding specialist and on-point catering options.
