Private Business Dinners and Social Events Just Got a Little More Glamorous at Four Seasons Hotel St. Louis
“We wanted to create a space for private dining that is not only accessible and stylish, but also more interesting and comfortable than a secluded meeting room,” says General Manager Alper Oztok. River North is located on the 8th floor, just steps from the Cielo Bar, and can accommodate up to 20 people.
For foodies, the hottest seats in the house are in Cielo’s kitchen. The Chef’s Table experience gives diners a behind-the-scenes view of a world-class kitchen and an evening of off-the-menu dining. Chef’s Table is a foodie's dream come true. Upon arrival, enjoy a rare guided tour of the Cielo kitchen while sipping a glass of bubbly – the perfect tour companion. Settle into a seat at the private granite Chef’s Table (accommodating two to ten guests) and watch Cielo’s culinary pros prepare an exquisite five-course meal, paired with complementary wines, beer, or cocktails. Expect plenty of insider tips, discussion of culinary trends and engagement from the culinary team are they prepare, sear and plate unique offerings made especially for you.
Enjoy the warm setting of the fireplace, floor-to-ceiling windows, a view of the Eads and Martin Luther King Bridge and access to the Sky Terrace. Fireplace dining is ideal for a semi-private meal for two or up to 72 guests. There is no shortage of culinary options here. For parties up to 12, guests can order from Cielo Restaurant's menu of house-made Italian favourites, featuring cravable small plates and antipasti, homemade pizzas, pastas and the freshest meats and seafood. For larger groups, choose from one of three uniquely designed menus, or ask the culinary team to create a special menu for the occasion.
Gaja Wine Room
Sip, savour and enjoy casual conversation in this unique social dining space. The Gaja Wine Room is a private dining space tucked away in a secluded part of Cielo Restaurant. Gather with guests around the 1,000 pound (450 kilograms), ten foot long (3 metres) communal table fashioned from the rafters of St. Louis’ Old Mission Baptist Church, which was destroyed by a tornado in 2011. Enjoy house Gaja wine from Piemonte, Italy, kept in the room’s private wine cellar on wine racks also built from salvaged wood from the Old Mission Baptist Church.
Let Cielo sommeliers artfully craft an exquisite, customized tasting from their wine cellar. And since great wines are even better with great food, graze on delectable antipasti and small plates from Cielo Restaurant or enjoy a specially designed multi-course meal.
