Best New Bar St. Louis 2013 - The Fortune Teller Bar
Perhaps more than any other business in the area, the Fortune Teller Bar truly encapsulates the up-and-coming revitalization of Cherokee Street with an unparalleled, winsome and esoteric spirit. As fate would have it for co-owner Sam Coffey, the bar sprung back to life after found signage revealed the building's previous life under the same name. House-pickled eggs, tarot-card readings and taxidermied décor help round out its persona, while dedicated craft-beer love, DIY cocktail infusions and a short list of excellent sandwiches made with local goods show a serious and steadfast side to the bar's approach. On any given night, expect a mixed bag of visitors, all of whom share the same peculiar zeal for the unknown.
