Named for Saint Paul civic leader, banker and philanthropist W. Andrew Boss, our newest stage puts you in the intimate embrace of 200 seats wrapped around this town’s top talent. With this addition to our Historic Hamm Building facility, we return to our intimate, thrust stage roots with the newest generation of theatre makers and theatre goers.
The Ecolab Lobby is one of Saint Paul’s truly great party rooms, with a large white and blue tiled bar, sculpted metallic gold wall and room for live music or post-show cabarets. The adjoining Target rehearsal hall is perfect for play readings, semi-staged workshops and meetings.
Great Waters Brewing Company opened in March of 1997. Located in the Historic Hamm Building in the heart of downtown Saint Paul, we are just steps from all downtown arenas, theaters and hotels. Our building rests on the original site of the St. Paul Cathedral, where we are blessed with a natural spring water well. The secret to our fabulous hand-crafted beers: holy water from this well!
Over the years, we have created over eighty-five different beers, and have won numerous awards including a Gold Medal from the Real Ale Festival for our Old Bastard Ale. On any given day we will have up to NINE hand-crafted beers on tap, including four CAMRA compliant cask-conditioned ales.
If you would rather be outdoors, Great Waters has the best patio in town. Located on Saint Paul’s only pedestrian mall, our patio is open year round. Whether you’re enjoying a pint in the summer sun or sitting on our Ice Patio during the Saint Paul Winter Carnival, you will experience great beer, great food, and great people at Great Waters Brewing Company.

Park Square opened in 1975 in an 80-seat walk-up in the Park Square Court building. With our move to the Historic Hamm Building in 1997, we began our strong relationship with Actors’ Equity Association (the union of professional actors and stage managers), and embraced a leading role as a producer of contemporary plays.
Since then, we’ve grown into one of Minnesota’s top employers of local stage talent – 64% of whom are women and artists of color. Our education program engages one of the nation’s largest teen theatre audiences.
We’re a vigorous company with the ambition and chutzpah to be your theatre of choice. Together with Artistic Director Richard Cook, our team of Artistic Associates – Aditi Kapil, Carson Kreitzer, Ricardo Vázquez and James A. Williams – bring you fresh titles and perspectives. They continually open up their heads as to what a Park Square play can and should be.
Inspired by The Spirit of New Orleans
Vieux Carré, (pronounced View- Kah’ray) earns its name from the French translation of “Old Quarter” and a love for the spirit of New Orleans’ rich food and music scene. Located in St. Paul, in the lower level of the historic Hamm Building, Vieux Carré offers a speakeasy atmosphere highlighting well crafted cocktails, an imaginative wine and beer list, a creole inspired menu, with music by Minnesota musicians.
