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!

Wow! This place was amazing!
The more we worked with Third Degree, the more we came to appreciate it. The service there was amazing with prompt responses to our inquiries and planning. We had no issues with them as they laid out their guidelines from the getgo and we were able to plan around it accordingly. The East Gallery is very customizable despite the industrial presence, and the wedding that we had there was absolutely gorgeous!Sent on 10/29/2019
Guests also appreciated the venue as they were entertained from sitting down at the ceremony till they decided to leave. I lost count of all of the compliments over the glass blowing demonstration during the flip.
Would totally recommend working with them and we are excited to see our sculpture from the Glass Ceremony!

Beautiful and Unique
This venue was perfect for both my ceremony and reception. I loved how beautiful, unique, and artistic this venue is. I barely had to spend money on decor because the venue is so beautiful on it's own. My guests RAVED about the glass blowing demonstration. I felt that the venue is a great size. There is a lot of space for everyone but it still feels intimate. The staff was amazing to work with and Rachel made the day so easy and the month leading up to the wedding was organized and stress-free. You will not regret booking this venue!Sent on 12/31/2019
Third Degree Glass Factory's reply:Thanks so much Sara! It was a joy to work with you! We thought you had a fabulous wedding!! Congrats and best wishes to you and Robert!
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!
