With our beautiful glass art decorating the rooms and the option to have demonstrations during the event, we're quite an interesting choice for your next get-together.

We are also one of the most open venues in St. Louis, letting the event planner make their own choice of caterer, rentals, and extra entertainment.

Third Degree Glass Factory also offers a wide range of classes and glass related activities for the St. Louis community. We have an ever-changing selection of fine glass from artists at all levels. In our gallery you will find handmade gift items from traditional to experimental.

Third Degree offers studio rental for artists as well as room rental for parties and private events. Third Degree is happy to schedule private demonstrations for your group. Our staff provides an informative narrated demonstration producing two glass pieces during the 45-60 minute demonstration. Molten glass captivates audiences of all ages and is surely a memorable experience. We recommend a maximum group size of 40.

"Wonderful Venue; Wonderful Service", RoushFamily from Saint Louis, Missouri
TDGF was wonderful to work with. My wife (then fiancee) and I booked both our wedding ceremony and reception there in a hurry when our prior scheduled venue became abruptly unaccommodating. We picked this place because, apart from its unique feel and artsy beauty, the staff was very accommodating to our requests. they have a list of suggested vendors, but you aren't limited to a small group of contracted service suppliers, as with many, many other venues.

The venue itself is beautiful inside, always covered with an array of glass art and complementary pieces, but the neighborhood can be hit-or-miss. This part of Saint Louis is currently on the upswing, and TGDF itself is very secure (Security Officers are provided to watch cars during the event, at no cost).

Cody Meirick (Event Manager) handled all of our numerous requests with grace and expediency, and was a joy to work with. Jim McKelvey, co-founder, stopped by during our setup time to check on everything and actually came back for the reception (we invited him that day), took pictures, and chatted with our guests.

My wife and I, along with each member of our wedding party, actually made a paperweight during our reception--how many other places provide a service like that!?

Parking is decent, there's bar service on-sight, and it's hip.

For a unique, memorable experience, we definitely recommend TDGF and staff. When you pay them a visit, be sure to check out the custom bathrooms.
