About us

The Opera House of Pacific offers a variety of scalable venues and services to assist in making your wedding or event as perfect as you have imagined! Whether it's assisting with decor, full wedding planning or consulting, we will customize our packages and facilities to meet your needs.  


The Opera House built of materials of the St. Louis 1904 World’s Fair, is located on the third floor of the McHugh & Dailey Mercantile Building in the heart of Old Town Pacific. For most of the 20th century, the Pacific “Opera House” has dominated the city’s skyline as the biggest and most impressive building. The exquisite red brick landmark built ostensibly for Pacific’s retail, cultural and social activities is available for private events such as weddings, receptions, rehearsal dinners, banquets, family reunions, corporate events, conventions, birthday’s, graduation parties, and more. The McHugh & Dailey Building also features a restaurant on the first floor and office suites, meeting and party rooms on the second floor.

"The Building Is Unbelievably Beautiful, Full Of History. Like Walking Back Into Time to The 1904 Worlds Fair. So Very Incredible and The People Are Exceptionally Nice.”

Laura Giovino

"I had never been here before as I live in FL, but was visiting my nephew, Nick in St. Louis. The reason we went to the Opera House of Pacific was to see Nick marry his bride, Emily. The place was decorated beautifully and the ceremony was awesome as they had both written their own vows. The whole experience was magical.”

Jill Schumacher
