For the everyday.
For the once in a lifetime.
And for everything in between.

The Anew Rooftop event space sits at the intersection of old and new. Of the past – and of the future. Of the classic and modern. This is a place to celebrate longtime friendships and make new connections. Here, atop this historic building, we invite you to celebrate all that we are – and all we can be.

The rooftop is an indoor/outdoor space. We’re ready to provide a full range of services for your next event.

Let your story begin here.

Kelly Spencer

The Social Affair

Chef Kelly Spencer grew up in Birmingham, Alabama and began cooking with her southern grandmothers at a young age, learning that cooking goes hand in hand with gathering people together. Originally on a career path in sales and marketing, Kelly could not ignore her culinary roots and while living in Chicago, made her first foray into the industry by founding the Chicago Butter Factory in 2001. While that experience was short-lived, she knew her passion for food and entertaining could not be ignored.  After moving to St Louis in 2004, she began formal study of the art of food preparation and presentation and earned a degree in Culinary Arts. She founded The Social Affair in August 2009 and today is more passionate than ever about creating sophisticated food presented in a unique way that brings people together for a delicious experience with lasting memories.

Reine Bayoc

SweetArt

Reine Bayoc is a maker of delicious things—Plant-based food and desserts are just two of the many. She was born in McKenzie, Tennessee, and grew up in Los Angeles and St. Louis with three brothers, her father, and her mother. Studying abroad in Lyon, France, is where Reine solidified her love of desserts during college. Soon after Lyon, she graduated from Saint Louis University with degrees in English Literature and French. After working a few cubicle jobs—while coming home to bake whatever her heart desired, Reine decided to take a shot at the dream of owning and operating a small bakeshop. In December 2008, she opened SweetArt Bakeshop and Art Studio with her husband, Cbabi Bayoc. Designed initially as an old-school bakery only and art gallery, the customers soon requested lunch options, so Reine Bayoc developed a vegan menu to satisfy the demand. For the past eight years, SweetArt has grown to become a local favorite for traditional, vegan, and gluten-free cupcakes, cookies, brownies and bars. Their lunch menu has garnered loyalty and awards (named Best Veggie Burger by the Riverfront Times and Best Vegetarian by Sauce Magazine). Renovated in July 2016, SweetArt expanded its kitchen and is now offering breakfast and classes for children and adults. Along with operating the bakeshop, Reine is the founder and creator of the Love and Magic Kitchen, a blog where she shares recipes, stories, and inspires all the culinary-timid to trust their intuitive internal cooks. Reine also travels the world cooking for special events and educating people on the process of intuitive cooking.

James and Pat Allen

Celebrations Restaurant

Pat and James Allen are the owners of Celebrations Restaurant. They opened Celebrations in 1997 as an extension of their catering business, Celebrations By Request, that Pat established in 1991. This is a second career for both Pat and James. To pursue their long time dream of opening a restaurant, Pat retired from Southwestern Bell Telephone Co. and James from his accounting and overnight freight business. The love of food, wine, people and especially the mentoring of their chefs and kitchen teams has been the driving force behind the success of the restaurant. Pat and James were recognized as Restaurateur of the Year in 2003 by the Missouri Restaurant Association. The North American Restaurant Association has awarded them their Award of Excellence for the past six years and the restaurant has been honored with the Wine Spectator Award of Excellence each year since 2003.
