Old-fashioned soda fountains bring out the kid in anyone, regardless of what era they grew up in. Fizzy's Soda Fountain and Grill (29 North Gore, Webster Groves; 314-395-4550) hopes to tap into that fountain of youth, delivering a shot of old-school charm in each of its handmade sodas.

Fizzy's opened in Old Webster on May 17, in the century-old building previously occupied by Dr. Jazz, with a full soda shop and grill menu. The twenty-foot-long vintage soda fountain comes with a full freezer built into it and, of course, an original soda-fountain unit. Even the built-in stools and wooden backdrop came from the '30s.

Visitors can choose any combination of more than 40 different locally created RIO syrups to flavor a soda or float, and owner Michelle Bray says Fizzy's has already made thousands within only months of opening. Just choose a flavor -- options include everything from birthday cake and cotton candy to classic U-Bet chocolate syrup -- and staff will adjust the amount to your liking, fizz it up with seltzer water and even top it with a scoop of ice cream if desired.
