The Mad Art Gallery provided myself and husband a wedding we dreamed of. During the planning stage of my wedding, the coordinator there always very promptly answered any questions that arose as well ... Read more as offering useful suggestions. I cannot express how important this was to me during the most stressful moments of planning. We chose to do our ceremony, cocktail hour, then reception all in this location which worked our perfectly. I was worried the lobby wouldn't hold all of the guests for cocktail hour however, the venue had the reception area ready to go in less than 10 min. and along with the courtyard, there was plenty of room. The owner/chef and coordinator worked directly with us to build us a food menu that we exactly wanted along with the bar menu as well. My husband: being a foodie and craft beer fanatic was happy beyond belief. We chose a stuffed chicken breast and beef brisket which was a huge hit with all of our guests. My husband to this day will randomly say he is craving our wedding dinner again. Our bar consisted of beer (which consisted of an awesome selection), wine, and a signature cocktail (which I advise). We had 191 guests that fit nicely in the reception area which was set up with a large wedding party table and round tables of 10. The coordinator was actively helping everyone through the whole event. The dance floor was plenty big and the stage provided an awesome space for the DJ. The venue provided lighting and of course had artwork on the walls which makes the whole space look even better. A large amount of decor from us wasn't necessary to make the venue look nice. The marble floors, old jail cells, and other vintage decor wowed people for it wasn't "like any wedding they have been to before". Another aspect of my wedding that was very important to me was photography. Along with the venue having wonderful spots for pictures, there were more than enough perfect areas within walking distance. Overall-Excellent venue and excellent people.

We had our ceremony and reception at Mad Art at the end of June. Taylor, the event coordinator, was so helpful and prompt through the whole planning process, and the day of the wedding she was on top ... Read more of everything! She made sure that everything was taken care of (even things we hadn't thought about). We felt completely at ease about the logistics of everything thanks to Taylor and the other staff. When the DJ and officiant arrived Taylor had a little chat with them and got on the same page about everything which really helped the evening flow smoothly. The only thing we had to worry about was getting ourselves ready! They have a really nice "green room" for the bridal party (or whoever else) to get ready in. Originally, we had planned to have our ceremony outside, but because of extremely hot temps and rain we decided the day before to move the ceremony inside and it went beautifully. The gallery space where the ceremony & reception were held was spacious, cool even with the hot, muggy weather outside, and plenty big for our 95 guests. We went very simple on the table decor because the space is already so nice with the lighting and art on the walls. The food was delicious and definitely not typical boring "wedding food". We chose the smoked turkey and brisket as the protein choices, and Ron the owner/chef added burnt ends at the last minute and they were awesome! Our friends and family loved the food, the space, and the old cell blocks. The bar staff was very quick and friendly. The outdoor courtyard made for beautiful pictures. Mad Art is a unique, all in one venue with a helpful staff that takes care of everything so you can enjoy your wedding celebration without worry.

Amazing food, and a beautiful gallery. Wonderful for pictures, eating, and fun! Carrie was an amazing coordinator and very helpful through everything. The staff was kind, helpful, and always smiling! ... Read more Great to have both the ceremony and reception in the same place. The only thing I would change is that (since we had almost 150 people) would have been to have set up a satellite bar to help keep the line short. It was also great to have the green room to put things in. Everybody raved about the food all night! Best venue in Soulard!
