The rich history of Vazzo Venue is sure to be a great attraction and conversation piece. Beginning as a Sorber-Kuhn Auto Supply Company back in 1916 followed by the Joplin Pleating and Button Company in the 1920’s it was soon transformed into The Grand Union Tea Company, a door-to-door grocery store that delivered goods in horse-drawn carriages, until the supermarket was developed and Crescent Grocery took over. In later years, the location also served as a bar, a print shop, and finally as a stainless glass shop. With a historic, industrial, and modern design aesthetic in mind, the building has gone through recent renovations to return it to its former glory.
Vazzo Venue provides privacy and personality by offering the use of the entire first floor of the building. Vazzo will take care of the basics while you are free to design the rest. Cultivate the atmosphere you desire from the food and drinks to the layout and decor while we supply the tables, chairs, and linens. At only $150 per hour, with a minimum two hour rental, the space will be available two hours prior to events for setup at no additional charge.
Celebrate anytime as Vazzo Venue is available 7 days a week from 6:00am-10:00pm.
We look forward to celebrating with you. To save the date or schedule a visit, contact Kimberly at
