The evolution of rec hall

The IDea

What did you say?

We wanted to be active, play some games, and have some drinks in a place that didn’t require a dress code and wasn’t playing music so loud that we couldn’t have a conversation with our friends. 

It All Started With


After finding a location in the Grove to try out our idea as a popup, Recess STL was born. From December 2019 through March 2020 we averaged close to 8,000 visitors per month. Our large spaces  allows visitors to spread out, relax, and have some fun.

Rec Hall

After COVID19 caused us to close earlier than planned, we found some new partners, a new name, and new locations. Our first location is opening soon in St. Charles in an old Schnucks grocery store with more to follow!

Building upon its success as a “pop-up” in The Grove, Rec Hall(formerly known as RECESS), in partnership with Green Street St. Louis (“Green Street”), becomes the lead tenant in the historic Armory building with a Summer 2021 opening.
