  • Bar Louie-Central West End

    Bar Louie-Central West End

    14 Maryland Plaza St. Louis, MO 63108
    314-678-3385

    http://www.barlouieamerica.com Is Bar Louie a swank cocktail lounge or a neighborhood bar and grill? Depends on when you show up. The Chicago-based chain occupies a massive space in the Central West End, and when it's filled with the young and the beautiful on a weekend night, it's got spark. Stop by for lunch or an early dinner, though, and you may feel lonely. Stick with the basics: sandwiches, burgers and fish tacos. Chase your meal with a beer or martini and watch the pretty people play. Read more about Bar Louie-Central West End >>

  • BBC Asian Cafe & Bar

    BBC Asian Cafe & Bar

    243 N. Euclid Ave. St. Louis, MO 63108
    314-361-7770

    http://www.bbcstl.com There's no longer banh mi at BBC Asian Cafe & Bar, even though it used to be one of the place's signature offerings (one of the Bs in BBC supposedly stood for it!). There is instead gyoka, maki, chicken teriyaki and some unexpected choices, such as the unagi crepe, which is filled with mozzarella, crab, unagi and unagi sauce. But these days, BBC is less about the food and more about the nightlife; there's a stylish little bar here and plenty of room to smoke hookah. And while there are plenty of places on South Grand offering just that, to the best of our knowledge, this is the only restaurant in the Central West End with hookah as an option -- making BBC the only place in town to puff away while watching the Euclid Avenue street parade.

  • Brennan

    Brennan's

    4659 Maryland Ave. St. Louis, MO 63108
    314-361-9444

    http://www.cometobrennans.net Brennan's has achieved must-go status among St. Louisans. The quaint Central West End cigar bar and wine market recently got a big city renovation, adding to its already considerable allure. The bar on the main floor of Brennan's is presided over by a billboard-sized sign, with text that changes regularly. Recent offerings: "When a smoking Indonesian toddler looks cooler than you, it's time to reevaluate your Ed Hardy gear," and "Chuck Norris will be upstairs this evening playing ping pong with an ironing board and a watermelon." An unmarked door in the middle of the room leads to the modern-day speakeasy in the basement cellar. Read more about Brennan's >>

  • Club Elite

    Club Elite

    813 N. Kingshighway St. Louis, MO 63108
    314-361-7857

    The sign outside of Club Elite states that the joint is "Where 'Particular' People Meet." How one defines "particular" is a matter of taste, but the friendly security guard who administers the pat-downs at the door makes sure that all patrons will have a particularly safe, good time. Housed in an old Pantera's Pizza building, Club Elite feels like a well-appointed clubhouse, with its exposed rafters wrapped in blinking Christmas lights and mirrored walls. Expect a cover charge on most nights. Read more about Club Elite >>

  • Double Apple

    Double Apple

    3131 Olive Blvd. St. Louis, MO 63103
    314-371-6700

    St. Louis is experiencing a hookah renaissance - OK, so we like to keep trends alive a few years after their expiration date. (Isn't that part of the River City's charm?) Double Apple is a new hookah bar and cafe on Olive Boulevard. This slowly gentrifying section of Midtown finds its life blood in the student population of Saint Louis University, and Double Apple 's 18+ policy gives freshmen a place to chill that isn't a student center or a Starbucks. There's no cover, and a live belly dancer shimmies through the cramped space, puffing proffered hookah while (of-age!) patrons knock back shots or debate which tobacco flavor to sample next.

  • Exo Restaurant & Lounge

    Exo Restaurant & Lounge

    3146 Locust St. St. Louis, MO 63103
    314-534-1500

    http://www.exostl.com You don't have to be a VIP to be granted entrance to Exo Lounge, but someone will probably notice if you aren't dressed like one. While you might not find Jay-Z in the booth sippin' Ciroq, you may encounter a local hip-hop star - this is where beautiful urbanites spend their Saturday nights. Plebes party on the main floor, while the elite saunter up the staircase to the private dancefloor and bar beyond. The room follows the ever-popular exposed-brick/warm-wood motif, with low-slung leather banquettes for bottle service overlooking the small dancefloor where the ladies work it out and the fellas sip their inhibitions away.

  • The Firebird

    The Firebird

    2706 Olive St. St. Louis, MO 63103
    314-535-0353

    http://www.firebirdstl.com It's dark. It's hotter than Satan's girlfriend. The low ceiling means all the heat being generated by the crowd is rising -- only to fall and suffocate unwitting and terribly sweaty concert-goers. But there's something primal and viscerally satisfying about paying to stand and sweat among the crush of bodies while your favorite indie band or local rockers obliterate the stage. If you're looking for a club that is based on atmosphere or ambiance, you might need to look elsewhere. But if it's music you're after, whether it's punk, rock, metal or something completely different, the Firebird is your new best friend. Having hosted everyone from the Dead Milkmen and Swans to Big Freedia and Best Coast, the Firebird is a lively and open-minded host to an show-going experience to be remembered.

  • Fubar

    Fubar

    3108 Locust St St. Louis, MO 63103
    314-289-9050

    http://www.fubarstl.com If you're looking for metal or punk in the area, Fubar is self-described "everything louder than everything else." Housed in the renovated former Olive Motor Company building, Fubar is owned and managed by Bob Fancher, who did time for more than a decade at the Creepy Crawl. Fresh coats of paint, digital jukeboxes, two bars and a music equipment supply corner provide a great atmosphere for this loud-as-bombs rock venue. Somehow they were able to score Black Flag recently, if that tells you anything about the staff's awesome taste. Fubar is split into two equally sized, larger rooms; on the right lays the venue, and the left, the lounge. One can expect the best local and regional rock bands, cheap drink specials and some good-natured hazing from the bartenders at this midtown watering hole. Read more about Fubar >>

  • Humphrey

    Humphrey's Restaurant and Tavern

    3700 Laclede Ave. St. Louis, MO 63108
    314-535-0700

    http://www.humphreysstl.com Humphrey's Restaurant and Bar's proximity to SLU makes it a go-to spot for college students. The spacious restaurant serves up classic bar food. Appetizers include fried mushrooms, jalapeño poppers and toasted ravioli. Humphrey's also offers bigger bites, including hot dogs, salads, a pork fritter and burgers (veggie burgers are available). For early birds, the restaurant has breakfast items such as an egg sandwich, biscuits and gravy, and a slinger, while night owls can sit back with a few cold ones until the wee hours: Humphrey's stays open until 3 a.m. Read more about Humphrey's Restaurant and Tavern >>

  • The Library Annex

    The Library Annex

    3693 Forest Park Ave. St. Louis, MO 63108
    314-652-8484

    http://thelibraryannex.com/ The Library Annex picks up where too-crowded Humphrey's leaves off. Right around the corner from that infamous SLU bar is a new, swankier but still purely college drinkery with a pseudo-educational twist: Books line mahogany shelves in each room of the large bar. There's a dance floor where DJ's spin party hits and collegial touchstone tunes like "Don't Stop Believin,'" multiple bar games and get this: an actual beer pong table. Ladies, don't be surprised if inebriated SLU guys propose marriage; it's a common occurrence, but for the most part they're quite polite when you refuse. Read more about The Library Annex >>

  • The Loft

    The Loft

    3112 Olive St. St. Louis, MO 63103
    314-225-2505

    http://www.theloftstl.com Olive Street is lined with tricked out Escalades and cruisers on Saturday nights, and men and women shoulder their way into the packed house, looking fly and fresh off a shoot for BET. The Loft is a mid-size club in the burgeoning Midtown strip. Reserved VIP booths line one wall, and Hot 104.1's best DJs broadcast live from the Loft, incinerating the dance floor with the best hip hop, R&B and soul. It may not be the biggest or swank-est club in River City, but the music is bangin' and the scene is too. Read more about The Loft >>

    Mandarin Lounge

    44 Maryland Plaza St. Louis, MO 63108
    314-367-4447

    http://www.mandarinlounge.net Find the gangway between Scape and Design Within Reach (hint: hang a left at the Maryland Plaza fountain), greet the black-clad bouncer, and take the elevator to the third floor. You're instantly greeted by a phalanx of Chinese warriors, set back against dark red walls. Mandarin is an upscale nightclub with one of the best rooftop patios in St. Louis. DJs spin Top 40 tunes, while Central West Enders tipple and recline in one of the intimate, soft-lit corners. Don't miss the bathrooms, which are joined by a large stone sink (girls are often found peering into the boy's side and vice versa) and feature a sheet of water magically raining down from the mirror. Washing your hands was never more fun. Read more about Mandarin Lounge >>

  • Six Row Brewing Company

    Six Row Brewing Company

    3690 Forest Park Ave. St. Louis, MO 63103
    314-531-5600

    http://www.sixrowbrewco.com Located in part of the old Falstaff Brewing complex, Six Row is a part of St. Louis' recent craft-brewing boom. A rotating selection of beers is available on draft (or in growlers to go). The signature beer might be the Whale, a malt-heavy concoction that is unique and complex, perfect for the beer aficionado and everyday drinker alike. Other selections, like a hop-heavy American IPA or strong foreign extra stout, are available seasonally. The food menu eschews trendy gastropub pretensions in favor of the straightforward, with St. Louis-style pizza, sandwiches, salads and soups. Read more about Six Row Brewing Company >>

  • Small Batch Whiskey & Fare

    Small Batch Whiskey & Fare

    3001 Locust St St. Louis, MO 63103
    314-380-2040

    http://www.smallbatchstl.com Restaurateur David Bailey takes the whiskey-bar trend in an unexpected direction with his vegetarian eatery, Small Batch. Bailey doesn’t bill the place as a crunchy vegetarian spot; instead, he hopes that diners will enjoy the vegetable-focused concept so much that they fail to miss the meat. The carbonara pasta, made with housemade linguine, replaces the richness of bacon with smoked mushrooms. Even the most die-hard carnivore will be satisfied by the “burger,” a greasy-spoon-style corn and black bean patty stopped with creamy guacamole, Chihuahua cheese, and Bailey’s signature “Rooster” sauce (tangy mayonnaise). Small Batch’s bourbon selection and creative cocktails are also impressive. The “Smokeysweet,” a blend of smoked cherries, rye and rhubarb, tastes like drinking punch by a campfire. For a taste of summer in a glass, the “Rickey” is a bright concoction of elderflower liquor, grapefruit, lime and white corn whiskey. The gorgeous, vintage setting provides an ideal spot to indulge in some Prohibition-era-style drinking. Read more about Small Batch Whiskey & Fare >>

    20 S. Euclid Ave. St. Louis, MO 63108
    314-367-4900

    http://www.tomsbarandgrill.com/ A classic American tavern that also happens to be one of the better sports bars in town, Tom's serves up a full lunch-and-dinner menu of pretty much everything you'd expect: wings, fried mushrooms, chef's salads, chili mac, roast beef sandwiches, chicken clubs. But predictable doesn't mean poorly executed: The food is fine, especially the tasty tuna salad and the strong, flavorful coffee poured out generously by the female waitstaff. A pair of TVs behind the ornate and gorgeous bar and a big-screen in the back ensure good game-catching sightlines for all. Read more about Tom's Bar & Grill >>

    http://www.vindeset.com The rooftop at Vin de Set alone is enough to get us there, but we stay for the 75 wines that pair so beautifully with its French cuisine. Enjoy escargot or buttermilk duck confit whilst sipping French, Mediterranean or American wine. Bottles aren't cheap, but there are more than 30 wines by the glass, too. Did we mention that gorgeous view? Read more about Vin De Set >>
