Over 1,500 people got a taste of Encore at Forest Park at the annual Great Taste event at the St. Louis Science Center on March 14th. The SOLD OUT event featured 50 area restaurants from the 2018 edition of Ian Froeb’s STL 100. Just a few weeks ago, we were immersed in fashion, and now we were in the middle of one of the biggest events for St. Louis food lovers! Consider us lucky.
You might be asking yourself, “Why would an apartment community want to be part of an event like this?” Well, funny you should ask! Here are our reasons:
- Encore at Forest Park is proud of the food, art, fashion and culture in St. Louis and will always support St. Louis’ local eateries, which rival the top restaurants across the country. Call it St. Louis pride!
- We are not only 844 steps from Forest Park, but Encore is also a 10-15 minute walk from the St. Louis Science Center. We had to support our neighbors!
- The apartment community in the middle of St. Louis’ restaurant rich neighborhoods like The Hill, Central West End, The Grove and Downtown needs to be a part of an event that gathered fellow foodies like ourselves. Just look at how packed it was!
The Encore team was on-site, in the middle of all the action with the Encore at Forest Park Lounge. Our lounge was right outside Boeing Hall, which featured a majority of the booths. We met so many people as they walked past our location or relaxed and enjoyed delicious food in our apartment-style lounge equipped with a living room and dining room area. Thank you to our partner, Empire Furniture Rentals, for providing the chic furniture!
Cheers to a successful Great Taste, and thank you to everyone who got a taste of us at the event! Until next year!
When our friends at Max Magazine and Brainchild Events approached us about hosting the 2018 Gent Fashion Show at Encore at Forest Park, we jumped at the opportunity. Who would pass up a shot at welcoming St. Louis fashion insiders and enthusiasts into our luxe lobby and apartments? Exactly. No one would pass up an opportunity like this!
The main event consisted of a runway show featuring curated collections from three prestigious local designers Shan Keith, Paulie Gibson , OSO: a style lab and international retailers Undercoat, Drink Beer Save Water, Vidl Denim, Religion Clothing UK.
As you can see from all the amazing photos taken by Max Magazine, the event did not disappoint. We had some incredible outfits (and models) grace the Encore at Forest Park lobby, which was decked out with a DJ booth, lights and more. There were models running around backstage (a.k.a. Encore’s state-of-the-art fitness center and multi-purpose room) getting ready for the big show. Are we in St. Louis or at NYC Fashion Week?
Appetizers were provided by The Dam and our lobby bar was packed with guests enjoying beverages made with Ezra Brooks bourbon. Attendees got a sneak peek of Encore’s luxury model apartments, which served as satellite bars with beverages from Urban Chestnut Brewery.
What’s next for Encore? Funny you should ask! We will be at the 2018 Great Taste at the St. Louis Science Center next week (March 14th, 6-10pm). The Encore at Forest Park Lounge at The Great Taste will serve as the ideal location for attendees to sit and relax, while enjoying food from St. Louis’ best restaurants. The Lounge will be decorated like an Encore apartment – sleek, chic and modern. Make sure you grab your tickets today.
