Mangia Italiano

Mangia Italiano is a classy 3 a.m. bar right in the middle of South Grand. There is plenty of free live music to be had, from Vinyl Fight DJ spins to the Dave Stone Trio’s incomparable jazz.


When Melt, originally located in the south Carondelet neighborhood, moved to Cherokee Street, it expanded everything from its square-footage and menu to its hours and entertainment initiatives.


Cicero’s in the Loop is a beer lover’s haven. With selections that alternate weekly, you can try just about any beer you’ve ever heard of along with a handful you haven’t.

  • Amsterdam Tavern

    Amsterdam Tavern

    3175 Morganford Rd St. Louis, MO 63116
    314-772-8224 Soccer may still be catching on in the rest of the country, but St. Louis has long been infatuated with the beautiful game. Amsterdam Tavern opened in 2008 on Tower Grove South's bustling row of bars and restaurants, and it's a stellar addition to the city's already impressive roster of soccer-friendly establishments. Unlike most other places, though, fútbol actually comes first at the Amsterdam. Scarves from dozens of European clubs decorate the walls (Arsenal and, of course, the Dutch club Ajax get the most prominent displays) along with memorabilia from Saint Louis University soccer and other historic local teams. The selection of draft and bottled beer is ample, and burger joint the Dam slings up the greasiest, most delicious burgers to accompany them just next door for patrons to enjoy barside. Best of all, the Amsterdam prohibits smoking inside the tiny bar, although smokers can puff to their lungs' delight on the massive outdoor patio. As for the other type of smoking that the city of Amsterdam is known for, the only homage is a badass picture of Bob Marley decked out in soccer gear. Read more about Amsterdam Tavern >>

  • BlackThorn Pub and Pizza

    BlackThorn Pub and Pizza

    3735 Wyoming St. St. Louis, MO 63116

    Tucked within Tower Grove South at the corner of Spring and Wyoming, BlackThorn Pub and Pizza is an old-school South-side watering hole that also happens to serve some of the city’s best pizza. The delightfully divey neighborhood haunt is well-known throughout the city for its deep-dish Chicago-style za drowning in mozzarella and their famous spicy sauce. And the kitchen also serves up thin-crust and pan pizzas, as well as a small selection of other joint staples like garlic bread and a few basic salads. If you decide to grab dinner at BlackThorn, be prepared to make an evening of it. You can expect to wait awhile for your pie whether it’s busy or not, but the chalkboard walls, shuffleboard table, and retro arcade games that give the neighborhood bar its quintessentially South St. Louis vibe - not to mention the freely-flowing drinks from a full bar - will provide more than enough entertainment to keep you occupied until the main course arrives.

  • Colorado Bob

    Colorado Bob's Ship of Fools

    3457 Morganford Road St. Louis, MO 63116

    While a sailboat somehow drifted onto the lawn at Colorado Bob's Ship of Fools, you only need to take a step inside to realize that this Key West themed bar is anything but washed up. In fact, after a few of their signature rum cocktails and margaritas served by attentive barmaids handpicked by cordial Colorado Bob himself, it might be hard to remember that this Tower Grove South establishment is situated within the landlocked Midwest. Along with the flavor of the Keys comes mellow rock music and decor whimsical enough to transform any negative Nancy land-walker into a seafaring Jolly Roger. Entertainment awaits in the form of the latest arcade games and a foosball table. Colorado Bob's would be a great stop for any Morganford pub crawl -- one drink of their Golden Margarita and it's "Off To Sea Once More." Read more about Colorado Bob's Ship of Fools >>

  • Erney

    Erney's 32 Degree

    4200 Manchester Ave. St. Louis, MO 63110-3826
    314-652-7195 Erney's 32 is the only gay bar on the Manchester strip that actually feels like a dance club. Laser lights dance on the white, low-slung leather banquettes, music videos blare from a number of flat-screen TVs and there's even a dais in the back with a stripper pole. This bar, the brainchild of owner Mark Erney, snapped up RFT's nod for Best Gay Bar in 2009. The club draws its theme from the ice-cold vodka drinks served both at the bar and inside the club's VodBox - a walk-in cooler with the temp just above freezing, where patrons can enjoy vodka in its natural environment (think Moscow in January).

  • Friendly

    Friendly's Restaurant & Pub

    3503 Roger Place St. Louis, MO 63116
    314-771-2040 Nestled within Tower Grove South at the corner of Potomac and Roger, Friendly’s Restaurant and Pub has a laid-back South City vibe perfect for kicking back and watching the game. If you’d rather play a game of your own there’s pool and darts inside, or you can head out to the enormous beer garden and play some air hockey, washers, pop-a-shot, or a variety of other games. Aside from that, Friendly’s beer garden also has a bar of its own, tons of TVs and a heated tent for those cooler days. The food menu is large too, offering everything from pizzas, sandwiches and burgers, to ballpark staples like nachos and hot dogs. Friendly’s also offers “Home Team Specials” on food and drinks during all Cardinals, Blues, Rams, Billikens, Tigers and Illini games, as well as happy hour daily from 3-6 p.m and 10 p.m. to closing time.

  • Honey


    4170 Manchester Ave. St. Louis, MO 63110
    314-932-1211 For an intimate dose of nightlife, get some sugar by cozying up to a honey on the dance floor. Honey's weekly events in the Grove feature no covers. Instead, take those dollar bills and spend them on a signature drink like the honey nut cheerio shot made with rumchata and Jack Daniels' Honey for five bucks a pop. DJ spins include '90s nights, mash ups and ladies' nights with drink specials. Read more about Honey >>

  • JJ

    JJ's Clubhouse

    3858 Market St. St. Louis, MO 63110
    314-535-4100 Tucked away in a dimly lit building under a highway close to the Grove strip, JJ's Clubhouse has the feel of a hideout -- or at least an insiders' secret playland. The city's resident all-gay male "bear leather" bar offers pool, popcorn and pinball, and the friendly bartenders, adorned in strapping bondage vests, are always happy to pour their specialty shot of "Kactus Juice." Special weekly events include dart night and butch night, in which patrons come dressed in their best. Who knows? You could get lucky and stumble into JJ's during their annual HiBearNation convention, in which the downstairs dance floor is flooded with cheery Bears from all across the nation. If that statement incites fear, JJ's might not be the place for you. JJ's is a friendly bar for males with an open mind, and if you're up for that, it guarantees a gay old time.

  • The Mad Magician

    The Mad Magician

    5625 Manchester Ave. St. Louis, MO 63110
    314-875-0644 From scene veterans and Archfront Media owners John Mancuso and Jason Rottler comes a new spot for rock, punk, metal and hip-hop to play. The Mad Magician gets its name from the mid '50s thriller film of the same name, paying homage to starring actor and St. Louisan Vincent Price. The venue's open floor plan features plenty of standing room and a huge stage manned with a blindingly colorful light show in rainbow hues. Mancuso hopes to bring in national artists (Bone-Thugs-N-Harmony, Method Man but are a few of the acts he's booked in the past) while giving locals the opportunity to open.

  • Meyer's Grove

    4510 Manchester Ave. St. Louis, MO 63110
    314-932-7003 Situated on the western edge of The Grove, Meyer's is a classy gay bar with a killer martini menu and a beautiful stage for its weekly drag shows. When the queens aren't on stage, crazy happy pop music fills the well-appointed bar, acting as an instant mood lifter. Meyer's knows its audience-Wednesdays are reserved for drag, on Mondays the place crowds with immaculately coiffed beauty industry-types taking advantage of drink specials for those in the 'biz, and Fridays are an all-out dance party. Grab a seat, take a load off and, good gravy, order a Nana Split martini if you know what's good for you. Read more about Meyer's Grove >>

  • Olio


    1634 Tower Grove Ave. St. Louis, MO 63110
    314-932-1088 Olio sits in a brilliantly re-purposed service station in the McRee neighborhood. With the Midwest’s top sommelier Andrey Ivanov at the helm, you can expect a topnotch wine list, which Olio has, including some odd varietals and a great Rosé made just for them. But the cocktails, too, are first rate. The menu changes each month, and bar manager John Fausz pays homage to classic cocktails from every era. The drink list is an eloquent little history lesson on the origin of each selection. Olio has nothing on draft, but it does offer a carefully curated list of beers in bottles and cans. Be sure to order a bite from the small kitchen, which is visible from the bar. From snacks like marinated olives, toasted nuts and hummus to heartier fare like tartines and rotisserie chicken, the food is every bit as good as the drinks. Read more about Olio >>

  • Pop

    Pop's Blue Moon

    5249 Pattison Ave. St. Louis, MO 63110
    314-776-4200 This itsy-bitsy institution is where in-the-know locals go to enjoy live music and a few brews with a small collection of characters. The family-owned establishment on the Hill is, for all intents and purposes, a bar for baby boomers, but that's not to say that youngbloods won't enjoy the eclectic décor, local and national acts ranging from folk to funk, and bottomless servings of the best rock-and-roll from the salad days -- those decades before video killed the radio star. The bar can be sleepy when musicians have the night off, but our mama always told us a quiet bar and a little Bob Dylan will cure what ails you. Read more about Pop's Blue Moon >>

  • The Ready Room

    4195 Manchester Ave St. Louis, MO 63110 A new music venue coming to St. Louis in spring 2014. Read more about The Ready Room >>

  • Sasha

    Sasha's Wine Bar

    4069 Shaw Ave. St. Louis, MO 63110
    314-771-7274 The second location of Sasha's (the original is in Clayton) sits in the Shaw neighborhood near the botanical garden. When you’re greeted with a novel as a wine list, you know you must be in the right place. Clever descriptions introduce each of the more than 60 wines available by the bottle or the glass. It’s also one of only a few places in town to offer Coravin tastings right out of the bottle without removing the cork—a great way to taste an expensive wine for just a few dollars. The appetizer menu features delicious wine bar fare, such as charcuterie, pate and smoked salmon plates. Made-to-order crepes and pizzas are perfect for grazing, while the lamb chops, beef brisket and grilled tenderloin will satisfy a heartier appetite. Read more about Sasha's Wine Bar >>

  • Stella Blues

    Stella Blues

    3269 Morgan Ford Rd St. Louis, MO 63116
    314-762-0144 The blues in Stella Blues seem more like an afterthought -- the name was good, so they went with it, and then bought two giant statuettes of the Blues Brothers to put on the small, eclectic-decored patio to anchor the theme. St. Louis is a major blues city, after all, but it's Marvin Gaye and Bob Dylan on the wall at Stella Blues instead of local legends like Johnnie Johnson and Josephine Baker. Walk up to the grill and instantly get a taste of what Stella Blues is all about -- a colorful, laid-back atmosphere and cheap eats including burgers and Peking-style seasoned chicken wings. Read more about Stella Blues >>

  • Three Monkeys

    Three Monkeys

    3153 Morganford Rd. St. Louis, MO 63116
    314-772-9800 Though the cheeky name and odd menu items ("Rainforest Salad," anyone?) may lead you to conclude this is a chain restaurant, Three Monkeys is really an honest modern take on the old corner tavern. It's a single, small room with low lights, wood fixtures and, when busy, a haze of cigarette smoke. Wood-fired pizzas and pork ribs are decent bets for a solid meal, and the "sweet-and-spicy" wings, a sauce that brings mild heat without vinegar's pucker, are a fine appetizer or snack. The list of draft and bottle beer includes a few higher-end selections. Read more about Three Monkeys >>

  • Tower Pub

    Tower Pub

    3234 Morganford Road St. Louis, MO 63116

    The Tower Pub is an pan-interest bar - here you'll find hipsters and hoosiers communing blissfully over their shared love of cheap brew, even while studiously ignoring each other. (Because, hell, this is still America.) Established in 2005, Tower Pub is a frequent stop on the now-ubiquitous Morganford pub crawls, and its friendly staff and attentive service keep us comin' back. The nightly specials are worthy of your attention, too. $1.50 Schlaflys? We'll take three. Read more about Tower Pub >>
