Lott Hall, formerly known as the Historic Clubhouse, has just undergone a major transformation. Originally built in 1933, it served as the clubhouse for the Hermann Park Golf Course until 1999. While we are putting the finishing touches on Lott Hall, it is now available to help make your next event unforgettable. The historic and charming space can accomdate 150 seated guests at tables, and 250 guests for standing cocktail-style events. Lott Hall includes a catering preparation area, restrooms, personal spaces for the bridal party, private areas for vendors, and newly built porte-cochère to give your arrivals a signature touch.

The historical renovations were imagined by local firm Curtis and Windham Architects. The building is set within vibrant courtyard gardens designed by landscape architects Michael Van Valkenburgh Associates. For more information on the restoration project, click here.
