At Big Brothers Big Sisters of Eastern Missouri, we build relationships. Trusting, enduring relationships that create new memories. Relationships that build communities. And improve lives.

That’s why, atop our headquarters in St. Louis, we built Anew – a rooftop event space and streetside test kitchen. Because there’s no better place to come together than around a table.

ANEW gives us a chance to strengthen the connections among our network of friends and supporters. It’s a chance for us to bring our mission to more people than ever. But most of all, it’s a chance to make St. Louis better and stronger than ever.

The History

ANEW sits at the crossroads of history. The Big Brothers Big Sisters of Eastern Missouri building at 501 Grand was once the St. Louis Woolworth store – the site of sit-ins in the 1950’s, and protests the decade after. Today, it stands as a tribute to those who have sought to bring us all together. Today, we are proud it is a place where everyone is welcome.


We invite you to join us at Anew. See what’s happening in our Test Kitchen. See what’s happening on the Rooftop – or reserve it for your next event. We’re ready to help you create something new.
