St. Louis’ Newest Event Venue: The Reverie

Butler’s Pantry acquires 23 City Blocks Hospitality Group and announces The Reverie, a new events venue

Part of The District of St. Louis, The Reverie can accommodate 400 people for a seated dinner.


This year is already shaping up to be a good one for St. Louis catering company Butler’s Pantry. Two of its new venues are slated to open this year: 18Rails at City Foundry STL in Midtown and The Reverie at The District in Chesterfield. And late last month, the company took over the family of brands owned by 23 City Blocks Hospitality Group, including The Caramel Room, 23 City Blocks Catering, and Lumen.

Butler’s Pantry owner Richard Nix, Jr. says he’s been looking to expand for some time. “There are so few event venues in West County,” he says. “A lot of our customers already live out that way, so we wanted to provide an event and meeting space that meets the demands of the area.”

Slated to open at The District in early July, The Reverie will complement the handful of locally-owned restaurants that are signing on at the Chesterfield development, part of which includes an open-air restaurant complex of sorts. “The whole project is unique to the area,” Nix adds. That includes the venue’s name, The Reverie, a moniker that connotes a daydream, so “anything we or the client wants to dream up is possible.”

The 15,000-square-foot space provides guests with a variety of options, including a dedicated pre-function foyer for cocktails and hors d’oeuvres, breakout rooms, a bridal suite, a garden area, and a main dining/meeting room that seats up to 400. Sliding and pivoting floor-to-ceiling doors lead from one room to another. “The space is more contemporary and sleek than any of the other venues in town, our own included,” Nix says.
