SqWires is proud to be a 5-star certified Green Dining Alliance member. We support local - we buy ingredients & products that are local, organic & responsibly raised. We also recycle, compost & re-purpose. SqWires is proud to support its wonderful historic Lafayette Square neighborhood - we sponsor concerts, movies & annual house tours. SqWires is a St. Louis Originals member - thank you for supporting independent restaurants! SqWires is a handsome redesign of a 19th-century brick structure, part of a Victorian–era factory complex. The former Western Wire manufacturing buildings, located on an entire city block in historic Lafayette Square, originally housed the American Bed Factory. In 2001, the complex was totally renovated & converted to house SqWires Restaurant, plus 80 business & residential lofts. The name SqWires combines its location in the Square & history of the Western Wire factory. SqWires also has two unique private event spaces - The Annex & Front Room. Rehearsal dinners, weddings, showers, holiday parties, business meetings - you name it...we would love to help you!
