Spink Pavilion was built in 1859 by Henry Shaw to serve as the main entrance to the Missouri Botanical Garden. This beautifully restored building is situated on the garden’s grand plaza overlooking three large reflecting pools filled with colorful water lilies and bordered by tulips, pansies and unusual summer annuals. From the pavilion, you can also see the Milles Sculpture Garden and the Climatron, the garden’s dramatic geodesic-domed conservatory.

Spink Pavilion has been updated with modern amenities. Floor-to-ceiling glass windows have replaced the old mullion-style doors and windows allowing guests to view the garden without obstruction. Other improvements include a new reception room; a seasonal awning over the terrace for shade and protection from inclement weather; a new HVAC system to insure a comfortable room temperature all year; new, modern restrooms; and state-of-the-art audio-visual equipment operated by the touch of a button. Spink Pavilion, located off of Tower Grove Avenue, is one of the most beautiful and sought-after event spaces in St. Louis.
