Third Degree Glass Factory, founded by artists Jim McKelvey and Doug Auer in 2001, is a one-of-a-kind event facility housed in a working glass art studio. The galleries and studios are located in a 1950s automotive dealership that has been beautifully restored and transformed into urban art galleries. The 6,000 square feet of open space can accommodate up to 225 guests for a sit down dinner or up to 500 for a cocktail party. Our galleries showcase beautiful glass art created at Third Degree by our staff and resident artists.
From elegant to outrageous, this glass infused industrial space is perfect for your special event. Guests can have the option to watch glassblowing demonstrations or possibly even make their own glass art in the form of paperweights, a beautiful keepsake to take home!

We chose Third Degree Glass Factory for its unique atmosphere, intimate size, and the one-stop setting. We knew that having our ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception all in one spot would make our day easier and more laid back. Working with Rachel through the planning was a breeze, even when we had special requests for our timeline, layout, and bar options. She was very responsive and timely in communicating with us when we had questions or concerns, and she was willing to meet with us multiple times to work out all the details. We opted for the glass ceremony and had a glass-blowing demonstration during our cocktail hour. It was amazing; our friends and family cannot stop talking about it. The commissioned glass piece that we received is something we will cherish forever as a reminder of our union and that amazing day. The TDGF staff worked with our coordinator to flip the East Gallery from ceremony floor plan to the reception floor plan in record time, allowing my husband and I to see the reception space before the guests did and our photographer time to get all the detail shots. Jenny was our day-of on-site contact and she worked tirelessly with our coordinator and other vendors. The timing of the ceremony and reception was smooth; everything happened seamlessly. Third Degree even offers to clean up post-reception for a very small fee, and the convenience of being able to leave at the end of the night was the priceless. We cannot recommend Third Degree enough. It was by far the best decision we made throughout the entire process of planning our wedding.Sent on 05/05/2016

Third Degree is the perfect place for a wedding and reception to be held together. We wanted everyone to sit at their dinner tables for the ceremony, and Third Degree made it happen. We got married in February and wanted there to be coffee and a place to warm up, and Third Degree made it happen. The staff is SO FRIENDLY and went out of their way to make sure our guests felt welcome.Sent on 09/25/2016

Katie and I chose Third Degree for our wedding because they were very reasonably priced. We were also excited to have a unique unity ceremony where we mix the pieces of glass that were later made into a beautiful piece of art for us to keep. The staff and artists all did an exceptional job and we could not have been happier with the event. Thank you to everyone at this great venue!Sent on 01/23/2016
This is such an amazing space. Love the urban feel. Plenty of room to be creative and you can bring in your own catering.
This St Louis location is one of the best forms of urban renewal in the city. They allow outside catering with approval and include tables and chairs, ambiance and more.
We love the Third Degree Glass Factory! It has such a unique look and makes for the most creative weddings and events. The staff is always amazing and everything seems to go off without a hitch!
