The Pageant Music Venue

The Pageant, sometimes called The Pageant Concert NightClub, is a music venue in the Delmar Loop district. It sits on the western edge of Saint Louis, Missouri, just east of the University City part of the Loop.

The Pageant is St. Louis' premier midsize venue, with ample space for the audience and stage room and lighting options for performers. It hosts touring national acts in pop, indie rock, hip-hop, jazz, blues, and more.[1] In 2008, the Pageant sold more tickets than all but three other clubs in the world, according to Pollstar.[2]

The venue has a main concert hall; the Halo Bar, a wet bar and smaller stage for smaller performances; and Suite 100, a retail shop that sells concert merchandise. It is one of the area's few handicapped-accessible venues.[citation needed]

Named for a long-demolished movie theatre that sat three blocks to the east on Delmar Boulevard,[3] the Pageant has a facade and marquee whose bright colors and neon lights are designed to evoke a classic movie theater.[4]
