Available NOW!! Former restaurant space available in the Cinderella Building nestled in the heart of the Cherokee Historical District The restaurant features a full dining room with small bar, and the kitchen has a hood and a walk in cooler. Historically, the Cinderella Building began life in 1913 as a skating rink built and operated by Harry and Eugene Freund. Two years later they converted their building into a movie theater, and the Wehrenberg Theater chain purchased the building in 1932, using the second floor as their corporate offices for several decades. As business declined in the 1950s, Wehrenberg closed the theater and left Cherokee Street. While the first floor storefronts remained occupied, the rest of the building fell into disuse until the St. Louis Juvenile Court moved into the office space. The Cinderella Building is a triumph and tribute to the versatile skills and craftsmanship of St. Louis terra cotta in the early 20th century. St. Louis produced millions of bricks to build this city, and the nation, but the role of terra cotta remains less well-documented. Sadly, as tastes changed in the in 1950s, the first floor’s terra-cotta ornament came down, and more “modern,” and incongruous, plain white tiles went up in their place.
