Welcome to the CWEA 
The mission of The Saint Louis Woman's  Club is the promotion of literature, science and art, and the study thereof, as well as the general intellectual culture, in a cordial atmosphere with friends and family.
The Saint Louis Woman's  Club was created to provide hospitality to the wives of the heads of state and royalty visiting St. Louis during the 1904 World's Fair. In 1912, The Saint Louis Woman's  Club moved to its present location, 4600 Lindell Boulevard.

Now in its second century, The Club serves its members as a classroom, dining room, meeting place, theater, ballroom and center of social activity. Besides serving its members, The Saint Louis Woman’s Club is also available for outside events. The Club retains the graciousness of that earlier age, with an updated traditional décor that appeals to modern tastes as well. The Club has several areas that are perfect for parties, luncheons, dinners and meetings. Please contact the General Manager for more information on hosting your event at The Saint Louis Woman’s Club.
