The Outlet meeting and event space reflects the city we love and the people who live here. Just like Edwardsville itself, we’re a mix of rustic and urban, sophisticated and quirky, traditional and edgy. We don’t fit the mold of a conventional reception hall – we’re a destination for the imaginative and creative who want their meeting, party or wedding to be one-of-a-kind.
Our 4200 square-foot venue has all the ingredients for a remarkable event, from the casually-chic brick walls and reclaimed wood interior to the curated menu and craft cocktails. Add in vintage arcade and bar games, an expansive dance floor, and high-definition TVs, and your big event is set. Plus, with our outdoor patio and greenspace, we offer flexibility you won’t find at any other venue in the Metro East.
In 2012, a group of local owners led by Matt and Mindy Mcsparin opened Edison’s Entertainment Complex in Edwardsville where kids of all ages came to bowl, hit up the arcade and play laser tag. Once parents saw how much fun their kids were having, they wanted a space of their own, too. Eventually, Edison’s opened onsite party rooms for meetings, rehearsal dinners and other events.
As the reputation for our customer service and event-planning skills began expanding throughout the St. Louis region, we opened The Outlet as a separate venue on the Edison’s campus in 2020. While the element of fun Edison’s is known for has expanded to our new event center, The Outlet possesses an upscale vibe all its own. The space also offers an exclusive scratch kitchen, barbeque area and private bar onsite to meet the culinary needs of our event guests.
Since we launched The Outlet, we’ve hosted a variety of special occasions events, including weddings, birthday parties and anniversary parties, as well as meetings and holiday parties for some of the largest companies in the St. Louis Metro East.
With no facility fee, free onsite event coordination and custom menus to choose from, it comes as no shock why The Outlet has become the go-to for those who want to add a little sizzle to their big events.
The Outlet delivers an extraordinary experience because of our extraordinary staff, from the talented artists crafting dishes in our scratch kitchen to the bartenders slinging handcrafted cocktails behind the bar to the waitstaff who serve everything up to your excited guests.
