|The Czechoslovak Society of America (CSA) has had a presence in St. Louis for many years. The local organization, founded in 1929, has a historic hall as its home base at 1404 Michigan Avenue, a mile south of the downtown area, which was built in 1940.
Members are able to visit the CSA Hall on a regular basis as the downstairs Club Room is open Monday through Friday from 4:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. (or later on Friday). The Club Room opens both Saturday and Sunday but times may vary depending what activities might be happening. Members may bring guests with them, however members must sign in their guests. The CSA Hall is available for rental for wedding receptions, private parties, family gatherings, etc. In the Latino community, the CSA Hall is utilized for Quinceaneras. Quinceaneras ("fifteen years") in Latin American culture, is a coming of age ceremony held on a girl's fifteenth birthday, comparable to a Sweet Sixteen celebration.
