The Space

Mad Art is more than hip. It’s historic. It’s elegant.

Our multipurpose venue gives you the opportunity to create memorable events for you and your guests. Located in St. Louis’ historic Soulard neighborhood, Mad Art boasts 19,000 square feet of terrazzo floors and marble hallways.

The one time squad-car garage is now a stunning 3,800 square foot gallery and event space equipped with custom lighting and professional sound.

Designed as the prime complement for our indoor event space, the outdoor courtyard creates an ambience nothing short of charming.
