Koken Art Factory

2500 Ohio Ave. St. Louis, MO 63104 | St. Louis - Clayton | 314-776-7600

Location Description:

The Koken Art Factory is a factory-sized blank slate, ready to be turned into the theme party palace of your dreams. This special-event mecca hosts a multitude of parties throughout the year, from Halloween monster bashes to Alice in Wonderland avant-art fetes. A few things are common at each Koken event: nude models slinking through the crowd clad only in body paint, live art, DJ's, live local or national musical acts, professional hula-hoop troops freewheeling, burlesque girls teasing the crowd into an uproar and plenty of beautiful people dolled up in their glad rags. No matter what the entertainment, there will be art, and there will be partying. And that's just how we like it.
