The Chocolate Pig Set to Open This Fall in Cortex Innovation Hall

Among many 2018 developments in St. Louis’ dense tech scene will be the new Innovation Hall in the Cortex Innovation Community, opened by the city’s Venture Cafe in the Central West End. The Innovation Hall concept will include a drop-in workspace that’s free and open to the public, a Civic Lounge, an event space for up to 300 attendees and The Chocolate Pig, a concept restaurant and cafe. The idea brings together all of the elements that create successful community, engagement and entrepreneurship.
