Local catering company Butler’s Pantry has transformed the machine hall of a former power plant located on the old City Hospital campus into Joule, a new event space. Pronounced “jewel,” the spot was built in 1937, in Lafayette Square, where Butler’s Pantry renovated the former City Hospital laundry facility into St. Louis’ Palladium Saint Louis 20 years later—which connects to Joule through an outdoor plaza. Preparing for the first event to launch this month, Joule will be able to offer wedding ceremonies, rehearsal dinners and more for up to 300 guests. 1400 Park Place, Lafayette Square
