About Sqwires Restaurant & Annex

Sqwires Restaurant & Annex is a wedding venue located in Saint Louis, Missouri. They are able to accommodate a range of events from traditional wedding ceremonies to rehearsal dinners, bridal showers, and engagement parties. This establishment is the former home of Western Wire and is the product of a redesign that enhanced the 19th-century brick structure. The entire complex went through a renovation in 2001, resulting in the birth of Sqwires Restaurant & Annex. Bethany Budde had spearheaded this operation and continues to run the thriving business. This restaurant is surrounded by approximately 400 Victorian-era homes and 30 acres of Lafayette Park. The charm of the historic neighborhood is imbued in the Sqwires Restaurant & Annex premises, helping any celebration encompass the magic of the bygone days.

Facilities and Capacity

Sqwires Restaurant & Annex boasts exposed brick, 18-foot ceilings, and period fixtures. There are also original wood floors and iron lights that couples and their guests are able to admire throughout the establishment. About 150 may be hosted in the main annex. The front room provides space for up to 40 individuals and may be used either separately or in tandem with the annex. The industrial setting offers couples and their guests a stylish and airy environment to enjoy a ceremony. Plenty of light filters in through the windows and ceiling fans keep wedding-goers cool and comfortable. Bistro lights influence a warm and welcoming atmosphere that is expertly juxtaposed with exposed piping. A loft area provides a fantastic space for games or other bespoke setups. The front room is ideal for banquet tables and boasts large artistic works along the walls.

    We hosted our Wedding Ceremony and Reception at SqWires Annex and couldn't be happier with the result. From inital inquiry until the end of the evening Ashley was kind, professional, and responsive. During the ceremony reheasal she ensured we covered every single detail. On the day of, she was by my side to help with cues for ceremony, transitioning rooms for a cocktail hour, as well as flipping the Annex from a Ceremony to Reception setup. All of our guests were extremely happy with the catering and loved the look of the room. I would recommend it for any event!

    SqWires was the perfect venue for us. We held both our ceremony and reception there and everything went really smoothly. We had about 90 adults and 15 kids at our wedding, which felt like a perfect number. The loft space was a great option for people wanting to have a quieter conversation or who weren't interested in dancing. Ashley and her crew were very accommodating, and made planning from out of town very easy. Our guests gave rave reviews about the food (especially the tater tot bar!). We used an outside vendor for our dessert, and they made it look amazing at no extra cost.

  • Landolfi String Quartet and Ensemble Wedding Musicians

    Landolfi Quartet played a wedding reception at Sqwires which was really a wonderful venue! It is spacious with a warm feeling. The buffet was exceptional. The area where the quartet played was comfortable and we could be heard and seen. Not that we have egos but when clients hire a string quartet that is usually important to them. We highly recommend this venue for weddings that want a warm, friendly feel with great food.
