Mad Art Gallery for Reception???

I am very interested in having my wedding reception at Mad Art Gallery in Soulard. I haven't made an appointment there yet. Has anyone had or attended an event there? I know it's $2,000 to rent the space but I didn't know how expensive the food is.

I really would just like to have it at a nice, open, simple art gallery any where in St. Louis that's reasonable. I have found some that I like, but we are planning on having 200-225 people attending so it has to be pretty big. Any other suggestions?

    I haven't been there for an event, but I was considering them as well a while back because they were a little more reasonable. They give discounts for Friday and Saturday weddings. They have their own in-house catering so I think that cuts the cost a little bit. I have their price packet if you want it. The package wasn't as straight forward so you'll really have to look at it to figure out how much it will end up being per person because of set up charges and such.

    I am having my weddding reception at Mad Art. We are not using them as our caterer but did do a tasting. The food was DELICIOUS but more than we wanted to pay. They will custom make a menu for you dependant on your budget. But you can only have 150 people seated.

    My law school had events there- the food to me was just so so and I know it was expensive.
