Historic Venue Receives $300,000 Makeover

July 21st, 2015

HISTORIC VENUE RECEIVES $300,000 MAKEOVER

Refreshed Iconic Ballroom is Ideal for Weddings, Corporate Events, Galas and Social Events

Butler’s Pantry, the exclusive caterer for The Coronado, is pleased to announce a $300,000 facelift to the facility. Improvements to the historic venue, located at 3701 Lindell Boulevard, include new flooring, fresh paint, lighting, drapery, tables and chairs, updated event space, cocktail bars and more.

Lavish Schonbek chandeliers in the South Ballroom, modernized LED lighting for the Grand Ballroom and custom drapery between the South Ballroom and Grand Ballroom are three of the major improvements. With this new drapery, the area can accommodate both intimate gatherings and large events.

The removal of carpet in The Bradshaw Room unveiled an original terrazzo floor. Carpet tiles have been installed in a harlequin pattern, mimicking the authentic terrazzo floor in the Ballroom, as an ode to the building’s history and charm. The Bradshaw Room boasts an LCD projection screen and accommodates up to 130 guests.

“It has been a privilege working on this historic venue,” said Richard Nix Jr., President of Butler’s Pantry. “We pride ourselves in our attention to detail and our top priority was to refresh the remarkable features of this cherished landmark.”

Local experts assisted with the project, including Commercial Installation Construction; independent architectural designer, Mark Herman; Flooring Systems Inc.; Sunshine Drapery & Interior Design; PayneCrest Electric; Edward Simon Painting Company; and Aries Company.

The building, built in 1926 by Preston Bradshaw, received an extravagant renovation in 2003. Restorations included a breathtaking barrel-vaulted Ballroom, state-of-the-art kitchen facilities, illuminating floor tiles and a majestic Grand Lobby with a large stone fireplace. The 10,000-square-foot Ballroom hosts one of the few remaining terrazzo floors in the United States.

Butler’s Pantry, a second-generation business founded in 1966, is the exclusive caterer at The Coronado. To host your event at the refreshed venue, please call 314.881.4346.

Customizing your Corporate Event

October 3rd, 2014

Olympic Themed Dessert Trio Olympic Themed Entry Olympic Themed Lunch

We recently hosted an Olympic themed corporate luncheon in the Bradshaw Room and the attending guests absolutely loved it!  With minimal decoration and focusing on some key elements, this event looked beautiful.  A special thank you to Personal Touches by Jeanetta Inc. for our décor.

I suggest starting with a statement entryway.  Allow the guests to feel like they are attending something special.  In this case, they walked between columns with faux torches and under large scale Olympic rings.  (Welcome to the Arena!)  The five tables reflected the five ring colors and had centerpieces which mimicked the Olympic torch.  Red, white and blue lighting coupled with red chair covers and metallic gold sashes gave the room a sporty, competitive feeling.  Iced sugar cookies (favors) with the guest’s name on them indicated their place setting and featured the Olympic rings as well.  The meal concluded with a fabulous dessert that featured a vertical balanced macaroon also featuring the Olympic rings design.  The continuity of the rings and ring colors reinforced the theme and that awards were given out to the highest achievers.  Medals were given to the awardees which looked like the ones given out at the Olympic games.

The Bradshaw Room can be transformed into any style of corporate event or color palate.  With a few well chosen props, lighting and menu, you can have a corporate breakfast, lunch or dinner that will win you the gold with your company.
