Still fresh off its chic remodel last year, the Colonial Marketplace has quickly become a boutique shopping and dining destination. The DESCO Group, which purchased the property in September 2011, brought in a unique mix of high-end shops, delectable dining and specialty services that have caught the attention of the area’s savvy shoppers. With all this buzz, the parking lot can fill up fast. But don’t worry about nabbing a space—complimentary valet service is available from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., Tuesdays through Saturdays.

Colonial Marketplace is transforming into a winter wonderland, just in time for the hustle and bustle of holiday shopping season. Beginning this week, lights, greenery and an abundance of holiday specials have begun to welcome shoppers to the recently remodeled boutique and dining destination on the border of Clayton and Ladue.
Colonial Marketplace, LN’s longtime digs, is continuing to see new tenants sign on amid the homestretch of renovation on the dining, retail and office plaza.
We can think of no cozier place to spend a winter’s evening than Bar Les Frères, Zoe Robinson’s newest creation and one of the most charming and romantic new dining spots in St. Louis.
LN’s stomping grounds are about to get a lot more interesting, as Colonial Marketplace is getting a major renovation. Recently acquired by The DESCO Group, the plaza already is humming with construction crews, who are ensuring that the building will live up to the potential its stellar location provides. Steps from downtown Clayton, the historic plaza sits on the northwest corner of Ladue Road and Gay Avenue. “Our vision is to make it a boutique and restaurant destination,” says DESCO president and CEO Mark Schnuck. “With the Clayton business district, great access from 170 and Ladue Road, and nearby residential neighborhoods in Clayton, Ladue and University City, it’s a great property and a great location.”
