ST. LOUIS, Mo (CelebrityAccess) — Patrick Hagin and Joe Edwards, the partners who in 2000, opened the St. Louis concert venue The Pageant, are opening a new venue in the market.
The venue, named Delmar Hall, is being planned for 6133 Delmar Boulevard, next to the Pageant in the space currently used by Big Shark Bicycle Co.,St. Louis Today reported. The 10,000-square-foot space will focus on concerts, comedy, and private events.
“This is going to be very meaningful to bands around the country and to music fans in St. Louis,” Edwards, speaking of Delmar Hall, told St. Louis Today. “To have this medium-size venue is really important.”
Groundbreaking and construction are due to begin in April, with a renovation of the stage, box office, green room, hospitality and patio planned. The performance space will be flexible, with seating, tables and stools, depending on the performer. The venue is expected to be open for business in Fall, 2016.
“I think it’s exciting for the city to have a midsize music venue like that, and the Loop is the perfect spot for it, where we all come together to enjoy food, music, drink and each other,” St. Louis Alderman Krewson told St. Louis Today. “I think it completes the circle for music venues in St. Louis.” – Staff Writers
