Early this year, St. Louis Union Station announced that big changes are afoot, including the addition of ambitious light shows, Ferris wheels, gondolas and train car cafes. Slowly, what St. Louisans once considered a hotel for out-of-towners is becoming a destination for locals.

Always a stunning architectural marvel, Grand Hall’s new look has created an ambiance that is unmatched in the city. Where else can you enjoy happy hour amid precise gold leaf detailing, mosaics, stained glass windows and sweeping archways? In that same stunning space, Executive Chef Russel Cunningham serves up an upscale menu—from slow-roasted pork belly to oysters Rockefeller.

On top of these renovations, the hall now sports a tech-savvy new look. Technomedia, an award-winning collaborator with entertainment companies like Cirque du Soleil, created a high-definition visual experience exclusive to Grand Hall. The first-of-its-kind projection light show, displayed on Grand Hall’s 65-foot tall ceilings, tells 10-plus stories throughout the evening, including a history of Union Station narrated by John Goodman.

Through cutting-edge innovation and renovation, Union Station continues to establish itself as a destination for locals and tourists alike. Though the outdoor improvements are currently in development, the Grand Hall experience is ready to offer up amazement.
