612North has transformed the Cutlery Building in downtown St. Louis. With unique event spaces that are nothing short of breathtaking, it’s one of the most refined wedding venues the Midwest has to offer.
Humble, Yet Ambitious Beginnings
612North Event Space and Catering has come a long way. President and CEO Munsok So is no stranger to running a prosperous business and providing stellar hospitality. As the owner of two Drunken Fish locations, a St. Louis favorite first established in 2003, So’s forte has always been delivering a spectacular customer experience. The only recurring issue with the restaurant locations was having too many customers and not enough space to accommodate them.
When patrons inquired about larger dinner parties, Munsok realized he was perfectly positioned to give them the space they needed. He decided to help revive Laclede’s Landing with a touch of sophistication.
After a few bumps in the road during the contract and construction stages and over $3 million of renovations, 612North successfully hosted its first event in 2018. Since then, Munsok’s venue has shown no signs of slowing down, filling its calendar month after month with all kinds of celebrations—especially weddings.
Located in the Cutlery Building on Laclede’s Landing, the spaces 612North offers are remarkable, making it the quintessential place for tying the knot. This exquisite St. Louis wedding event space allows guests to choose between two rooms, VUE and ARC, to exchange vows. Both are excellent options for celebrating nuptials and toasting to forever, all with an immaculate view.
VUE perfectly suits couples getting married who share an appreciation for a fantastic view. This room features large windows overlooking the St. Louis Arch and the Mississippi River. Plus, its gorgeous light fixtures create warm undertones, complementing the brick archways. Simply put, VUE is a lovely combination of modern and historic elegance that will give any ceremony a timeless feel.
For guests of honor looking for a unique space, the underground ARC has an intimate, moody feel. With wood wall panels and historic gray stone archways gracefully illuminated with a splash of LED lighting, ARC contributes to the overall sense of romance. ARC also has a stunningly lavish, large bar, which is a jaw-dropping centerpiece and, no doubt, a consistent crowd pleaser.

With a mission to rise above the average banquet hall, the 612North team passionately delivers unprecedented experiences for all of its guests. Superior hospitality doesn’t stop at a beautiful dining and gathering area—no celebratory occasion is complete without delectable cuisine featuring the finest quality ingredients, all prepared with care and expertise. The catering menu is full of mouthwatering options their chefs prepare to perfection.
