Best Outdoor Drinking - 2013
Joe's Chili Bowl at The Terrace View
808 Chestnut St.
St Louis, MO 63101
Drinking outdoors is like putting an Instagram filter on everything — the grass gets greener, the light gets softer and the moment sort of slows down. There's no better place in St. Louis to experience this than the terrace at Joe's Chili Bowl. Don't be fooled by its humble name — Joe's is housed in a lovely, steel-and-glass box perched on the northeast corner of Citygarden. Surrounding this piece of functional art is a wide stone patio and a lovely fountain overlooking the artwork dotting the garden, all in the shadow of the Arch. On a beautiful day, no place is more satisfying to kick back and enjoy some adult beverages — especially because Joe's features drink specials every day at rock-bottom prices. There are martini Mondays, $3 margarita Wednesdays and $3 mimosas on weekends.
