Piper Palm House

 

Built in 1878, the Palm House is the oldest standing greenhouse west of the Mississippi River. After major restoration, this event space has become a sought after location for special events.

Located in the heart of Tower Grove Park, this conservatory sits on an open air plaza overlooking the historic lily ponds. 

With its distinctive architecture, including stately windows and soaring ceiling, and towering palm trees, this space is perfect for indoor or outdoor wedding ceremonies, rehearsal dinners, wedding receptions, and all special and corporate events.

The indoor seating capacity of The Piper Palm House is a comfortable 150 with use of provided round tables and chairs.  More guests can be accommodated at standing events or with combined use of the building and plaza.  A year round brunch/buffet, Café Madeleine, is offered on Sundays from 10:00 AM - 2:00 PM, and is increasingly popular as a refreshing oasis for Park visitors.
