New club in suburban St. Louis will make its debut July 16
The Factory, a 3,000-capacity club in the St. Louis suburb of Chesterfield, will host its grand opening concert July 16 featuring Deadmau5.
More than 20 shows are announced through the fall, including a variety of acts from Old Dominion to The Roots, Midland to Marc Rebillet, Sublime With Rome, The Beach Boys, Simple Plan and more.
The 52,000-square-foot event space was developed by The Staenberg Group. The interior takes on an industrial vibe, which includes cues from old factories and manufacturing plants with finishes like weathered wood, metalwork stairs, exposed brick, vintage lighting fixtures and polished concrete.
The Staenberg Group has partnered with Contemporary Productions to serve as the exclusive booking agency and consultant for The Factory. Veteran talent buyer, festival producer and St. Louis native Dan Merker is the exclusive talent buyer for the venue. Brian Carp (formerly of House of Blues in Anaheim and Dallas) serves as The Factory’s chief operating officer, and Erick Greene, who has more than 15 years of live event and venue marketing, is marketing director.
In a discussion with VenuesNow earlier this year, Merker said the venue would bring music to a growing area of the St. Louis area that has long needed it.
The Factory is part of The District at Chesterfield, a 372,000-square-foot mixed-use development.
The venue has a seated balcony and can host fully seated shows for 2,350. Sustaita Architects of Houston designed the facility, Chiodini Architects created the exterior, and O’Toole Design Associates fashioned the “factory-themed” interiors.
