Saint Louis, Missouri (PressExposure) June 15, 2011 -- A fine, luxurious chocolate store at downtown St Louis found its calling in the private event business when a wife of an ex-Cardinal player requested if they could hold a private event at the store. With more people searching for unique venues, Cafe Cioccolato has expanded to an event space management company - Private Event Spaces in which the company provides unique venues and event management to customers and space management for landlords.
"Customers can call us and tell us about their event and we will suggest various sites to them," David Salvato, President of Private Event Spaces said. " It's like a one-stop venue shopping site"
Besides providing a venue to clients, Private Event Spaces will also manage the event by providing the necessary furniture and linens; bar management; liquor license; security; and a event coordinator.
"We want our customers to know that we are there from the moment they pick the venue until their event ends," Salvato said. "We are not a venue listing company".
Currently, Private Event Spaces holds La Perla, Cafe Cioccolato and is partnered with Stanley Cigar Lounge. Private Event Spaces is working on three more locations in the downtown area to add on their list of venues.
"We have landlords coming to us saying that they want to rent their space out for private events but do not want to deal with the hassle of event logistics," Salvato said. "This is where we come in".
This gives the opportunity for landlords to maximize their space besides providing unique venues to the growing number of patrons whom are constantly looking for the perfect space. Private Event Spaces is constantly working everyday to acquire new unique spaces in order to provide an extensive list of venues for patrons.
"Our mission is to work with more venues in years to come because we understand that every event is different," Salvato said.
