Best Outdoor Drinking St. Louis 2009 - Brennan's Wine, Food & Tobacco
4659 Maryland Ave.
St. Louis, MO 63108
On a warm evening in the Central West End, conversation, smoke, laughter and wine breath will surely be blooming off the sidewalk tables in front of Brennan's. This, we're here to tell you, is the perfect vantage point from which to marvel at the rich parade of humanity — from chic to shabby, cool to clueless — that inhabits the CWE's nerve center at Maryland and North Euclid avenues. Inside, Dominican cigars are on offer, along with plates for light nibbling, a varied selection of imported beers, and wines from Europe, California and Australia. On the sidewalk sits a row of cast-iron patio tables, bookended by shady trees. Settle in there or perch on a stool at the central picnic table. Kick back, lift your glass and watch the show.
