The Famous Bar

5213 Chippewa St. Louis, MO 63109 | St. Louis - St. Louis Hills | 314-832-2211

Location Description:

The drink is the thing at Famous Bar. You may not find the ambitious pre-Prohibition cocktails that everyone and their mother is trying to do these days, but you will find a solid menu of martinis, margs, shots, cocktails and (oh yeah!) kick-ass, multiple-award-winning bloody marys. The Famous Bar is designed for drinking and flirting and laughing and dancing. And by punning on the name of the long-lost department store just a few blocks down the street, the Famous Bar achieves genius.
