New Venue - NEO on Locust

NEO on Locust, located in the historic Oakland Building near Saint Louis University, features the preserved architecture of the historic St. Louis automotive district. The Purple Ball cocktail reception will be held on the first floor which features floor-to-ceiling windows and an airy, loft-like feel. A quick ride up the elevator will take guests to dinner and dancing in the NEO room, a larger, urban space with gorgeous exposed brickwork and unparalleled views of the St. Louis skyline.
