MAJORette! St. Louis’ newest contemporary venue In early 2016, 37 artists took to Majorette’s main floor and mezzanine spaces, and practiced their craft, passion and livelihood in front of hundreds of St. Louisans over the course of four hours at ArtScope’s Wall Ball 2016. That event exemplifies what the venue’s owners, Pat and Carol Schuchard, want to offer St. Louis—a space for innovators, creators and young entrepreneurs to come together for work, celebration and education. Since hosting the artist-focused event, Majorette has hosted dozens of corporate events, lunch ’n’ learns and nonprofit fundraisers in its 12,000-square-foot space, making ample use of the renovated clerestory stage, 360-degree bar, game room, projectors, spacious private parking and open layout.
Looking back to the history of the space—a former furniture store that later became home to a telemarketing-firm—the renovations have livened up this portion of Manchester considerably. The Schuchards used their areas of expertise as studio artists and interiors experts, partnered with an affection for “problem buildings,” to transform their blank canvas into a hip, inviting and historic St. Louis space. As established venue owners, the Schuchards tap their connections to enhance each client’s experience. Those looking to enjoy the space will have access to interesting florists, caterers, photographers and entertainers who know the venue well, leading to an unforgettable experience from start to finish.
