  • Baileys

    Baileys' Chocolate Bar

    1915 Park Ave. St. Louis, MO 63104
    314-241-8100

    http://www.baileyschocolatebar.com Located at 1915 Park in the heart of the idyllic Lafayette Square neighborhood, Bailey’s Chocolate Bar serves up some of the city’s best desserts and cocktails, in addition to a small but stellar selection of savory offerings. Thanks to its dim lighting and the rich browns and reds that dominate the interior, Bailey’s Chocolate Bar is well-known as one of the city's most romantic spots. Selections range from classic desserts like crème brûlée and Bailey’s strawberry sundae to more contemporary creations like their vegan banana split made with strawberry sorbet, as well as a variety of house-made ice creams and truffles. Savory offerings include sandwiches, salads and pizzettas, and a sizeable selection of fine cheeses. The bar serves up a bevy of beers, wines, spirits, and specialty cocktails – your sweet tooth will thank you. Read more about Baileys' Chocolate Bar >>

  • Bastille Bar

    Bastille Bar

    1027 Russell Blvd. St. Louis, MO 63104
    314-664-4408

    http://www.soulardbastille.com If you're looking for a smoky gay bar in which to wile the night away, the Soulard Bastille may be your new favorite hang. The owner closed the kitchen in order to skirt the 2011 smoking ban, and has since hung giant cigarette sculptures outside the bar that read "This house is a'smokin." The walls are covered in flair, from a buffalo head on the wall to Rocky Horror light-up signs and rainbow-colored icicle lights adorning the ceiling. The bartenders are extremely friendly; don't be surprised if they ask you -- no, make that, order you -- to belly up to the bar for mandatory shots. Read more about Bastille Bar >>

  • DB

    DB's Sports Bar

    1615 S. Broadway St. Louis, MO 63104
    314-588-2141

    http://www.dbssportsbar.com Around 1 p.m. on any given weekday, there are approximately 90 men and two women having lunch at DB's. Since this bar calls a self-effacing little brick building on a stretch of throwaway, near-abandoned street home -- meaning most patrons consider DB's a dining destination -- this ranks as a small phenomenon. But DB's gives its clientele what it wants. A TV set in every corner blares 24-hour sports programming, while waitresses swan around in teeny T's or outfits that require multiple modifiers: itsy-bitsy, neon-pink, strapless, Lycra. Weekend nights find DB's with a boisterous crowd and the ladies clad in naught but lacy underthings—it's as close as you'll get to a skin show on this side of the river. The menu is mostly straight-up bar food -- including DB's Famous, an open-faced sandwich made with melted Provel and ham atop French bread that's actually quite tasty. Surprisingly, there's also a touch of the down-home, thanks to daily, blue-plate-style specials like meat loaf, lasagna or roast beef. What, no breast of chicken? Read more about DB's Sports Bar >>

  • Element

    Element

    1419 Carroll Street St. Louis, MO 63104
    314-241-1674

    http://www.elementstl.com Helmed by executive chef Brian Hardesty of Terrene and Guerrilla Street Food fame, Element serves up hearty rustic American food in a beautifully restored historic brick building in Lafayette Square. The two-story, warmly rich space is filled with glass and wood and features an open kitchen in the lower level restaurant area so that every table feels like a chef’s table. Four chefs actually share the kitchen there, each one bringing their own flavor to the collaborative concept. The top floor offers small plates and a gorgeous full bar in an urban chic lounge area. Both levels offer outdoor seating with stunning views of downtown St. Louis. Hardesty and his team use local ingredients with attention to the flavors of the season. Notable dishes include a pork-belly small plate - so creamy it is almost spreadable - served with tangy blue cheese mousse, plums, French prunes and walnuts. The short-rib large plate is equally decadent, the meat falling apart with the slightest prodding of a fork. Served with a rich sweet potato ale, rutabaga and Swiss chard, the short ribs are tailor-made for a chilly day. The wine list is small but thoughtful, the beer list features local craft selections and the bartenders are up to the challenge of customizing a craft cocktail based on a mood.

  • Great Grizzly Bear

    Great Grizzly Bear

    1027 Geyer Ave. St. Louis, MO 63104
    314-231-0444

    http://www.greatgrizzlybear.net At the corner of Geyer Avenue and Menard Street in the historic Soulard neighborhood, the Great Grizzly Bear's brick building plays host to casual barflies and annual Mardi Gras revelers alike inside and on its large patio. The menu features more than a dozen appetizers, including potato skins, nachos and its specialty "Grizzly Balls," a shredded cheese and chicken concoction spiked with hot sauce and fried. Cajun specialties include jambalaya and Mardis Gras blackened shrimp. Great Grizzly Bear also offers soups, salads and a large selection of sandwiches, including burgers and melts. For dessert, try the fried twinkies (not for the faint of heart). Sports fans can hop on the Grizzly Bear sports shuttle to get to the game and back, so long as your promise to get your pre- and post- game on. Read more about Great Grizzly Bear >>

  • Hodak

    Hodak's Restaurant & Bar

    2100 Gravois Ave. St. Louis, MO 63104
    314-776-7292

    http://www.hodaks.com A St. Louis institution so popular you have to line up on a ramp, amusement-park-style, while you wait for a table. Fried chicken is the main attraction here - more than a few claim it's the city's best. For $7.35 you get a half-chicken fried to a crisp, golden brown, the surface uniformly crunchy, the meat tender. Hodak's also features fried fish, chicken-fried steak and even fried frog legs. Those seeking a non-fried meal will find steaks and barbecue as well as sandwiches, burgers and daily lunch specials. Read more about Hodak's Restaurant & Bar >>

  • Molly

    Molly's in Soulard

    816 Geyer Ave. St. Louis, MO 63104
    314-241-3200

    http://www.mollysinsoulard.com Soulard nightlife fixture Molly's has turned its former next-door neighbor Norton's into a bistro, with a Creole-influenced menu developed by chef Eric Brenner of Moxy. As at Moxy, the best dishes at Molly's are thoughtful but unpretentious - simply put: good food. Consider the duck breast in a light, sweet apricot-bourbon sauce or the tremendous Berkshire pork chop in an apple-brandy demiglace. Because this is a bistro, steak is available: filet or the less tender but often tastier hanger cut. The latter is topped with a poached egg - a nifty twist on the classic steak-and-egg pairing. Appetizers include "Etouffée Lasagna" with crawfish and andouille, and seared scallops with red beans and rice. Read more about Molly's in Soulard >>

  • Planter

    Planter's House

    1000 Mississippi Ave. St. Louis, MO 63104
    314-696-6203

    http://www.plantershousestl.com Finally, master mixologist Ted Kilgore gets a house of his own with Planter’s House. This Lafayette Square temple to mixology is a showroom for Kilgore and company’s (wife, Jamie, and business partner, Ted Charak) inspired cocktail artistry. Drinks run the gamut from the approachable “Planter’s House Punch” to the esoteric wormwood-laden “Unusual Suspect.” The joint is, first and foremost, a cocktail room, but it features an inspired food menu. The poutine is magnificent -- thick, red-wine pork gravy covers a platter of fried and smashed fingerling potatoes. Or try the duck burger, a mammoth mix of ground duck, pork and bacon is served open-face on a pumpernickel bun with Gouda and a fried duck egg. It’s quite possibly the perfect way to soak up all of that booze. Read more about Planter's House >>

  • Social House Soulard

    314-241-3023

    http://www.socialhousesoulard.com Social House took over the spot formerly occupied by M.P. O'Reilly's in Soulard across from the farmers' market. Its menu features typical pub grub -- wings, spinach-artichoke dip and nachos to start, with burgers, sandwiches and pizza later on the list. Wraps include a veggie option, featuring roasted vegetables, rice and tomato-basil sauce. Social House also offers entertainment, with pool tables, video games, dart boards and a large dance floor where 18-year-olds can mingle with the 21-and-up crowd while scantily clad shot girls deliver Jagerbombs and Bud Light in pitchers.

  • Sonny

    Sonny's

    1026 Geyer Ave. St. Louis, MO 63104
    314-588-1807

    The Soulard jazz-and-blues club Spooty's recently reopened with new owners as an entirely different concept: Sonny's. Gone are the open-mic blues jams; in their place is a pretty standard Soulard watering hole -- meaning that Sonny's is cheerful, casual and cheap. Nothing wrong with that--except think twice before you bring a date. Tuesday night trivia runs from 8 to 10 p.m., while an all-day happy hour on Wednesdays includes $2 24-ounce beer cans all day long. Read more about Sonny's >>

  • Square One Brewery

    Square One Brewery

    1727 Park Ave St. Louis, MO 63104
    314-231-2537

    http://www.squareonebrewery.com Housed in an old Lafayette Square tavern that was home to an Anheuser-Busch tavern a century ago, Square One Brewery's dozen different varieties of house-crafted beer include the staples of every microbrewery -- a rich stout, a clean-tasting IPA and a tart weizen. The food is casual hearty pub fare that goes well with the full-bodied flavor of a pint: chili, beer-cheese soup, bratwurst, plus beer-battered this, that and the other. Besides the dozen microbrews on tap, the distillery side of the operation churns out its own whiskey, vodka, gin, an American tequila and three rums. A brewery and a distillery...in the same building? We are there. Read more about Square One Brewery >>

  • SqWires

    SqWires

    1415 S 18th St St. Louis, MO 63104
    314-865-3522

    http://www.sqwires.com Built into part of the renovated Western Wire Products factory in Lafayette Square, SqWires focuses on simple, spirited food. (Seafood, in particular, is a highlight.) The interior is modern-industrial with a cosmopolitan feel, thanks to exposed brick and lofty windows. The happy hour is pretty solid with above average drink offerings group-friendly food -- plates are easy to share, and each offers something for someone. The dips-and-spreads app features warm pita bread fanned among three very distinctively different but complementary dips. SqWires' modern flare fits in beautifully against the historic backdrop.

  • Way Out Club

    Way Out Club

    2525 S. Jefferson Ave. St. Louis, MO 63104
    314-664-7638

    http://www.myspace.com/wayoutclub Nostalgia hits like a ton bricks at this club, adorned with framed photos and artwork of pop culture past. Every inch of wall and ceiling space is covered with something here: B-movie posters, random art, framed pin-up girls giving their best sexyface, a collection of dead, vintage televisions, and weird alien fetuses housed in glass bottles like so many formaldehyde frogs. The TV sets that do work display obscure exploitation and indie-flicks. This hip watering hole has a venue side with a tall stage, booming sound system and enough seating in the form of '50s dinette sets to make Betty Draper jealous. In its storied history, the Way Out Club has hosted many a music group, ranging from psychedelic jam bands to all-girl garage rockers. Both the bar and show areas are spacious, providing ample room for the occasional interpretive dance, or punk rock flailing. The booze selection looks keen, and this spot stands to be a rare haven for hippies and hipsters alike. Just don't forget to give Angus, the Way Out's resident feline, some love; he's really the one running the place. Read more about Way Out Club >>
