ST. LOUIS, MO – The new Mellow Mushroom pizzeria in Cottleville, MO is complete and open, with Knoebel Construction serving as the general contractor.  Each Mellow Mushroom restaurant is locally owned and features a completely unique design. This eclectic and colorful 5,400-square-foot location features 80’s inspired design elements and decor, colorful neon lights, graffiti art and whimsical sculptures.  The architect was Oculus Inc.

The new location opened last week and is the second Mellow Mushroom in St. Louis. In 2016, Knoebel Construction built Mellow Mushroom in Sunset Hills.

“It’s very art-centric and has different types of influences and art,” said Tammi Hilton, owner of the new Mellow Mushroom in Cottleville. “Our goal is that every time a family comes in to eat they can have a different experience.”
