The Pageant (sometimes called The Pageant Concert Nightclub) is a music venue located in University City area of St. Louis, Missouri. It is St. Louis' premier mid-sized 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 Pollstar's 2014 rankings of the top clubs worldwide in terms of ticket sales, The Pageant was 6th.[2] In 2008, the ranking was 4th.[3]

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,[4] the Pageant has a facade and marquee whose bright colors and neon lights are designed to evoke a classic movie theater.[5]
